Masur draws heavily on previously published books about Springsteen and archival interviews with The Boss himself, but "Runaway Dream" would have benefited greatly from new interviews with Springsteen and others involved in the making of the album.

Still, "Runaway Dream" does an effective job of evoking the album's power, and the role that the Jersey landscape (emotional and physical) and the aura of the times played in its creation and its staying power.
