A.J. Jacobs Learns to Love Dylan, Survives 'Tempest,'

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Before our team began the Soundcheck Workshop in June, we issued a challenge to our listeners. As we embarked on a self-improvement plan, we dared you to join us in making a summer resolution of your own. 

Many of you stepped up, including the writer A.J. Jacobs of Esquire magazine. Having authored books like The Year of Living Biblically and Drop Dead Healthy, Jacobs took experimental living to a new level: He set out to become a Bob Dylan fan. Today, A.J. describeshis summer of Dylan and reviews the singer-songwriter's new album, Tempest.
