Rock 'n' Roll Wisdom
What Psychologically Astute Lyrics Teach About Life and LoveBook - 2007
"No other book has treated rock 'n' roll lyrics so seriously, as a source of both creativity and wisdom. No other book has used rock lyrics to help us understand who we are and why we do what we do. This is a work that will make readers think about their lives and consider where they have been, as well as where they are going. Featured artists include Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Eagles, Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Alanis Morissette, and more. Rock lyrics from every decade since the 1950s are featured and intertwined with the theories of such psychological luminaries as Freud, Rogers, Erikson, and John Bowlby. The wisest rock lyrics, says Farber, can teach us something about ourselves that even the greatest figures in psychology have sometimes failed to do."--BOOK JACKET.
