I thoroughly enjoyed how the author explored Bowie's reading, the different influences on his thought at different periods, and how he explored it through his music. The emphasis on Bowie's individuality, on following his own path, and thriving on opposition when audiences and record companies didn't share that vision, appeals strongly to me. I think this book captures that driving force of this incredible artist extremely well.
I also highly recommend Robert Lurie's earlier book, "No Certainty Attached: Steve Kilbey and The Church" (Verse Chorus Press, 2009).
At a mere 65 pages print length, this Kindle-only edition might be called a "light read", but it is nonetheless packed with facts and insights worthy of a book several times its size.
Whether or not you are a Bowie fan, and whether or not you know anything about his music or his life, you will find this a fascinating read.
This guy's bio on Steve Kilbey of THE CHURCH was also a great read.
