Review

The energy in the stories makes you feel you are right there beside him in the yard. From the first chapter until the last I was hooked. This book is how it was for us writers and how we all liked to dodge the authorities to get our name up.; - Lee Bofkin - Global Street Art ;A complete menace to London's transport network. He was always one step ahead of us.; - Spokesperson for British Transport Police "GLYNN JUDD is a real writer who takes the reader back in time where you were out there racking paint, going to the yards, lay ups and tunnels and looking out for the Vandal Squad who were hired to take us writers down. This book is an explosive ride through the graffiti world that most individuals only dream about. You're there with him and you feel the rush, the adrenaline. It holds your interest from start to finish. The book has everything in it that makes you feel like you're there with him. If you love graffiti and have a flair for excitement you'll love this book, it has grit it has heart and adventure and most of all it is riveting from start to finish. ADDICTED TO STEEL is a winner and the only real story that you'll read about the graf game in a long time. The book actually made me start racking paint again and I'm ready to bomb. I give this book 10 out of 10, it's a must read. Enjoy! - FUZZ ONE --Fuzz One

Product Description

Addicted to Steel explores the global phenomenon of applying graffiti on trains. It chronicles the tales of a London based graffiti writer who, over a period of twelve years, became a household name and one of the most wanted vandals by the British Transport Police. With his unique insight into this greatly misunderstood subculture, the author has given us the first of its kind detailed account of criminal damage on such an unprecedented scale. The book covers many missions that span across London, the Home Counties and as far afield as Europe and New York. The adrenalin fuelled short stories transport you in to the grime covered underbelly of London s underground transport network along with many other cities. It is a thrill a minute roller-coaster ride of planning, painting and quick getaways.

Format:Kindle Edition
Great book from someone who manages to impart a great amount of atmosphere to the stories - nice to see a book about the culture that is based on actual stories rather than just endless flicks!
