Format: Paperback
Caveat: I've not read this book. I'm adding this review because my glimpse at it via Amazon's "Look Inside" feature revealed a basic error of fact on p. 2, which makes me wonder about the level of scholarship involved.

To wit: Thompson cites 1979's _Just A Gigolo_ as Bowie's "big-screen debut", overlooking his performance in the leading role of Thomas Newton in 1976's _The Man Who Fell To Earth_.

I'd expect someone writing about Bowie to get this sort of detail right: it's not exactly an obscure fact. Can't comment on the book as a whole, but this isn't leaving me with much desire to read the rest.

Format: Paperback
Fans of rock musician David Bowie will want to have HALLO SPACEBOY: THE REBIRTH OF DAVID BOWIE, one of the most comprehensive reviews of his entire career in print. Bowie seemed on his way down back in 1987 when his album was dismissed by the music press and his latest tour deemed a disaster: nearly twenty years later he's reestablished - and reinvented - himself, and HALLO SPACEBOY follows this rebirth in detail. Interviews with fans, colleagues and associates accompanies a detailed discography and follows up on Thompson's initial MOONAGE DAYDREAM on Bowie in 1987.
