What sets this title apart from the usual ICF dross is that it actually gives an insight into the man rather than the self-publicising industry that Cass Pennant has become.
This is a well written and well edited biography of Cass the person presented without comment, blame, sensationalism, rancour, or bitterness.
- in particular the account of the Sheffield stabbing, his subsequent inprisonment and eventual release, with the devastating psychological effect on Cass is superbly insightful, sympathetically written, and factually presented.
There is also an excellent profile of the times and culture of the Club Scene in London, with many glimpses of the dark side of Door Management, plus a honest look at the drug and alcohol induced excesses perpetrated by both customers and security staff at many venues.
The final chapter appears to be both an ending and a beginning for Cass Pennant, and the whole book is uncomfortable yet fascinating reading, mainly due the factual presentation and lack of sensationalism.
If you are going to buy or read just one book on Cass Pennant then this should be it - highly recommended.
