About the book: 
Two long-time friends share an intimate and urgent conversation about life, music and their enduring love of America, with all its challenges and contradictions, in this stunningly-produced expansion of their ground-breaking Higher Ground podcast, featuring more than 350 photographs, exclusive bonus content, and never-before-seen archival material.
 
Renegades: Born in the USA  is a candid, revealing, and entertaining dialogue between President Barack Obama and legendary musician Bruce Springsteen that explores everything from their origin stories and career-defining moments to the growing distance between the American Dream and the American reality. Filled with full-colour photographs and rare archival material, it is a compelling and beautifully illustrated portrait of two outsiders-one Black and one whitelooking for a way to connect their unconventional searches for meaning, identity, and community with the American story itself.
 
It includes:
· Original introductions by President Obama and Bruce Springsteen
· Exclusive new material from the Renegades podcast recording sessions
· Obama's never-before-seen annotated speeches
· Springsteen's handwritten lyrics for songs spanning his 50-year-long career
· Rare and exclusive photographs from the authors' personal archives
