Koch also provides background on Andy's personal life covering his family, schooling and the Valerie Solonas assassination attempt and how the incident shaped the rest of his life. Knowing Warhol's work was often an immediate reflection of the people around him Koch makes sure to include a great overlook of the major players, known as Andy's "Superstars" as well as those who never became household names but were staples of The Factory.
Beginner Warhol fans will find this a fantastic overview and expert Warholians will love the in depth discussions Koch provides for each film. Definitely recommend this one!

The only good outcome was to see proved again that 'doing the hard yards' is absolutely vital when seeking a creative career. This book is a mess, and in losing all objectivity in his account of Andy Warhol, Mr Koch lost not only his head but wrote as if he had imbibed strange substances himself. In his ghastly book he almost managed to prove that Andy was not a creative individual who actually fired up a minor revolution in the western arts.
The book here, unlike his great effort after decades of teaching others to find their writing skills, is worth junking completely.
In short, it stinks.
