I have found more informative and profound the IG section of "The Dark Stuff" and "Please Kill Me" but for a full book on our favorite Stooge this is the best thing out there so you might as well purchase it.
Beyond the 320-page biography, there's an appendix that lists Iggy's albums in chronological order, with original release and label information and info on the musicians. And as hard as it is to get excited about footnotes, they really stand out in this book. Each chapter's notes are like an add-on chapter, where the author provides supporting quotes, and often gives a longer version of a short quote from the narrative.
Maybe best of all are the two sections of photos. You can flip through the photos and captions and get a good preview of the full narrative, with great photos from the Stooge and solo eras. But if you read in public (as I did, on the subway) you might want to watch out for the full-nude shot.
Very informative and indepth review of Iggy Pops' career and life to this point.
On the whole, I think it is a pretty balanced portrait. He doesn't gloss over the negative aspects of Iggy Pop's life nor over emphasise the positive.
