Don’t waste your time with the countless biographical rehashings of David Bowie’s career. If you want to understand what transformed ordinary David Jones into rock god David Bowie and how he came to create some of 20th century’s most memorable and influential music, there really is no better book on Bowie than this: it’s the Bowie fan’s bible. Even if the level of detail is more than the casual fan might be looking for, Pegg’s engaging style makes the book as entertaining as it is enlightening: He describes Bowie’s late-period reclamation in concert of ‘Fame’ as a “prowling monster”, “speeding ambient funk” is a delicious description of 1995 album track 'The Voyeur of Utter Desturction (as Beauty)' and his comment that the discovery of any extant recording of Bowie’s early performances of ‘Chim Chim Cheree’ would “blow ‘The Laughing Gnome' out of the water” is hilariously true. - Jonathan
