"A forensic examination of his most prolific period... Doggett exhaustively chases Bowie's inspirations and intentions as he morphs from the gender-bending glam rock Ziggy Stardust to the plastic soul-spinning Thin White Duke." -- Bernard McNulty Telegraph "What he has delivered here is an astonishing and absorbing work that expertly unpicks this explosively creative time in Bowie's life... Ultimately, Doggett's insight and enthusiasm should send you back to the music. If you do so the book will ensure you experience something entirely new." -- Rob Fitzpatrick Sunday Times "His potted history of Bowie's early years is an exemplary introduction to a star in the making and he's excellent at placing the sexuality-stretching Bowie within the context of a decade struggling to find it identity at the fag end of the free-loving 1960's." -- Keith Watson Metro "Peter Doggett's insightful homage to Ziggy and Bowie's life." Monocle "A book of substance that compels you to listen to Bowie's best-known songs a fresh and his less obvious songs anew." -- Patrick McNamee Time Out
Brilliant musical critique; biographical insight and acute cultural analysis, The Man Who Sold The World is a unique study of David Bowie and the 1970s.
