Thanks for pointing this out. Looks promising!

Yes, I have. It's an academic tome that is very thoroughly researched but in places a little hard work to read.
Extensive analysis of Joe's quotes and lyrics. Has loads of references and footnotes. I found some of it thought provoking from a personal perspective.
Fairly decent review here
