“An extravagant coffee-table book that collects Mick Rock’s photographs of the chameleon rock star as Ziggy Stardust … there is more than enough for both the casual Bowie fan and the obsessive.” The Observer, January 2003″The closest we’ll ever get to a straight-up Bowie autobiography – but who’d ever want anything straight-up from Bowie?” Rolling Stone, September 2012
