Terry's world might be, hell, it's MEANT to be a little scary for alot of people! Not in the sense of depicting violence or even real depravity but rather in the near-apocalypitc vulgarity with which it depicts post modern-hedonism, where sexual pleasure is about as idealized as a Tijuana donkey-show.

A man, laying half-passed-out on a bed, is seen puking, Terry (who appears in many of his own photos) pulls a tampon string out of a woman's vagina with his teeth, a guy pisses into his own mouth--you get the picture. It's a garbage-world where all the turn-ons are trashy. It is strangely arousing inspite of the yuck factor, but whether that's because it's sexy or because I'm just so jaded I'm happy for anything that can jolt and shock my deadened nerves, is up for debate!

Jolts and shocks are what Terryworld is all about. Terryworld is to erotica what Hustler was to Playboy. It's flat-out raunch,but with a fashion photographer's sensibility, which is to say that it does have some artistic merit beyond its novelty value, calling to mind the "provacateur" advertising campaigns of recent years, of which Terry himself has often played a part. His situation-heavy portraits are Tarantino-like movie stills from a movie I'm not sure I want to see.

Which brings me to my point; In the end, after all the money's come in, all the heads have turned and all the word-of-mouth has been exhausted, what is the final value of shock?

Remember when you were fourteen and looking at your stolen copy of Hustler, you felt kind of sick at the end of the ride. Your heart rate increased as you turned each page, your curiosity peaked to see the next lurid spectacle, you flipped faster and faster until finally it was over, you'd seen the whole thing--More, in fact, than your mind was capable of processing in one sitting. You were late for dinner, had a pressure headache, and a faint desire to go to church.

Welcome to Terryworld.

While I do think this book is a great deal at around $14, I found the content underwhelming. Imagine if a kind of slimy quasi-celeb in Hollywood had a series of drug/sex parties and someone walked around with a camera taking pics of the the men's equipment and caught a few couples doing sleazy stuff. Then various girls posed and showed their boobs, a few pornstars came by and blew some guys, and the host took more pics of his Johnson. Some of the guests clowned around with props and did silly stuff naked, all captured on film. Then you would have the pics in this book. The only thing I can say for Terry is that he's taken some of the best pics of Lindsay Lohan I've seen. But there is nothing approaching that quality in this book.

Anyone who is a fan of Taschen's line of coffee table art books and Terry Richardson will enjoy this book.

Terry Richardson is one of the more risque and gritty fashion photographers of the last decade or so, with his signature glasses and plaid shirts, an this book is a fun, brief foray into some of his work. It is definitely risque, NOT safe for work or children - and some of the photos may be a bit uncomfortable for some readers / viewers.

But, this is a great volume to add to your Taschen series, or any photo book collection.

when I read the reviews, Some said that they were disgusted and repulsed by the imaged in the book. I thought that it is a great book. I had some laughs while looking through it. It's not a book to leave on your coffee table when all your family is coming for Christmas dinner but we all have the one dad or brother that we can be like "DUDE, check this out!"90% of images include genitalia (That's a heads-up). I totally recommend this book if you're into creative, nude,erotic or shocking photography. Just get the book... You have nothing to lose (well, $[...] bucks.... You'll spend that at taco bell anyway)

Print quality is poor. Many, if not most of the images have lines running through them--like the corrugated lines on cardboard. I've received two different copies of this book from Amazon. Both have the same print quality issue. Oh well, for $14 . . .

This man is a sexual predator and the fashion industry has known this for years. Big Brand Names and all others MUST stop using this pornographer, mistakenly called "artist." I will never buy this book nor will I buy any brands associated with his name. Wake up World! The time for exploitation of women and the degrading of young girls is OVER.

Sign this petition at Change.org to bring Richardson to justice and stop him from destroying more young girls.

Already working as a prominent commercial and celebrity photographer, American photographer Terry Richardson, took a sharp left turn in his personal work and ventured into Shock Art. Given his Punk Rock past, this might not seem so surprising. But the intensity of this book will almost surely affront the senses of most viewers and challenge the very core of their personal aesthetic. Is this art? Would Johnny Rotten be offended?

Richardson showcases a plethora of imagery here that ranges from the beautiful to the absurd to the grotesque. Festive nakedness, sex, vomiting, lots of cocks, and much more. It's a delirious, psychosexual bus ride, and like a bad acid trip, you can't get off - you're going the whole way baby. It's fascinating.

Terryworld represents an artist obsessed with his own crazy sense of creativity and artistic power. With dimensions stretching to 13x10" and containing 288 pages - this is a true Magnum Opus from punk's greatest lensman.
