    For all that this book tauts itself as being full of rare and unseen photos I found it very underwhelming. Very few of the photographs selected by the author seemed truly unique, and the collection was dominated by images of Bowie on stage with a microphone or at social events. Performances (as both of these situations are just that) may be interesting, but when it's the entire collection - and not even portraying artistic or crafted images - the reader is bound to get bored.

As for the accompanying text, I found that even worse. Thomas' writing style is choppy, lacks finesse, and seems more focused on regurgitating facts than it is with creating a compelling narrative. Considering that I already have far more informative biographies of Bowie (as well as more artistic collections of photographs), this book will not be one to stay in my collection.

    Bowie's visual style was almost as important as his music. Certainly, one influenced the other throughout his career, and this book provides great insight into this true star.

    Really not worth the effort, by "rare" he means poor quality photos and lazy rehashed stories that add nothing.

    3.5 No 'rare' photographs, but a nice collection all the same.

    The book contains high-quality, iconic pictures of Bowie from when his career started as David Jones, until the Reality tour in 2003. Being a huge fan for years already, I was quite pleased that this offered many interesting information that you can't easily find online - especially pictures and details of him during his formative, struggling years. If one wants to keep in possession only one Bowie book, this is not a bad one.
