In terms of serious historical study the content of this book is not essential reading. However to get a feel for the "super-club" of the seventies and another angle on the place if you have seen the movie it is perfect.
This is a great book to flick through with great photos of some very famous people having a wild time. There is of course the ubiquitous Andy, but also some other celebrities that I didn't expect -Stallone in his younger days doesn't look quite as scary.
The fashion is magnificent, if only the clubbers of today could compare.
A nice record of an interesting time when drugs, sex and disco were still relatively new.

The pictures are good, but not great. This book brings together a collection of pictures that tries to show what 54 was all about, the wild times, the celebrity, the charcaters of the day. Unfortunately this is not a greatest hits picture book of Studio 54 and that is what is needed.
