With a new album in the offing—Tempest, his 35th studio effort, is slated for a September 11th release—and a new round of North American concert dates lined up with Mark Knopfler, it’s fair to say there is arguably no other living artist as relentless in his musical pursuits as Dylan either.
Dylan’s seemingly unwavering resolve and resilience underscore journalist Jon Friedman’s forthcoming book, Forget About Today: Bob Dylan's Genius for (Re)Invention, Shunning the Naysayers, and Creating a Personal Revolution.

Forget About Today will be published by Perigree Trade on August 7.
