From the Inside Flap
." . . a fascinating and sensitive look at body modification subcultures and the political debates surrounding them."-Patricia Clough, author of "Autoaffection: Unconscious Thought in the Age of Teletechnology "
"The book refreshingly moves the arresting figure of the extreme body modifier out of the realm of the pathological and the masochistic and reveals how these practices and their disturbing embodiments challenge the tyrannical concept of normalcy that keeps the rest of us narrowly in check."--Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Emory University

Now I don't have a problem with this phenomenon, I think its pretty interesting but If you want to read that kind of thing you can find tons of it free on Bmezine. Bmezine, has tones of experience stories like this, actual pictures and a means to contact people actually involved.
If you scrape away the interviews all you have left are the authors opinions about modification and a few cheap sudo cyberpunk photo's.
If you want a good read about body modification read the modern primitives re search title and the industrial culture handbook. I don't really have any good academic recommendations but I bet with a bit of research you can find something a lot better than this.
