The book features inside stories, interviews, Bob’s composing, band personnel, recording sessions, tours, and his very private personal life. Turn the Page is a “must” for any true Bob Seger fan. This is the only Bob Seger biography written to date, with over 280 pages, 24 in color with over 60 images, and 224 documented footnotes. Many of the color images are from the distant past, including very rare photos – as a poster advertising a Seger concert headlining John Lennon.
“This is a very honest and accurate book about Bob Seger…it is really well done, not only documented properly, but the photographs are phenomenal…I really appreciate the hard work that was put into this book…this is the first and only complete Bob Seger biography…if you know Bob Seger enough, you know why it’s the first one…Seger’s got five different lives and this book covers ‘em all…the author did his homework, there’s no question about it…”
