The photo book could have been better in my personal opinion. Photos are beautiful, well printed, but some of them are really too known to gain a place in a "new" photo book of The Police. The biggest defect is, however, the lack of captions: only some words by The Police put casually, and in most cases well known phrases taken from other books (as stated on the credits). I would have preferred if every pic had a caption of when and where it was shoot. From this point of view, Danny Quatrochi's Police Confidential is far superior to Lynn Goldsmith's book. And concluding: the collage photo of Sting at the end contains so many pictures I never saw that one ends the book thinking why on earth Lynn didn't put "those" photos in the book!
All in all, not bad, but it leaves me a feeling of "unfinished" and "it could be better" hurried book.
From the beginning 'til the dolorous stop of the '84, after the "Sincronicity" Tour, Goldsmith's photos got the power to try to understand the real men behind the band, inside there's a collection of funny photos and individual photos of the members with note written by Sting, Andy and Stewart.
Good book, very good book!!!!
