Product description


"We might as well have had sex by now." (Lady Gaga)

"The Mike Tyson of interviewers." (Dave Pirner, Soul Asylum)

"The best interview of my life." (Britney Spears)

"One of the longest and greatest interviews I've ever had." (Brian Wilson, The Beach Boys)

"One of our favourite interlocutors." (Bono)

"The best and most honest daily newspaper reporter rock has ever seen." (Dave Marsh)

"Well Neil, f**k you." (Phil Collins (in an angry letter to Neil))

"[Strauss has] had fantastic access to an enormous range of famous people..." (Keir Hind Skinny)

"When dealing with the media-savvy, emotionally frail modern megastar...[Strauss'] techniques certainly get results." (Andrzej Lukowski Metro)

"Strauss becomes confessor, accomplice, champion and prosecutor. One minute he's discussing feminism with Lady Gaga. Next, he's taking part in the Ho'lympics at the home of rapper Ludacris." (Colin Waters Sunday Herald)

"one of the most intuitive interviewers and portraiture artists on the Rolling Stone/NY Times payroll ... Addictive." (Peter Murphy Hot Press)

"Strauss is genuinely trying to shake down celebrity for the small change of wisdom. ... Strauss can be an imaginative and sympathetic interviewer and packaged up alongside his A-list interviews are encounters with unsung heroes." (Observer)

"Fantastically entertaining." (Sunday Times)

"It's almost overwhelming when you realise the wealth of people [he has interviewed]...beautifully designed, it's a lovely thing to own." (Alex Heminsley BBC 6 Music Nemone)

"Strauss is a deft narrator and expert inquisitor. He cuts out the flowery descriptors and gumpf that comes with interviewing a star...and strips it back to the revealing nitty-gritty, absurd and amusing exchanges we all wish we could be privy to. ... The perfect book to dip into." (Kim Taylor Bennett Time Out)

"an insight into the inner workings of contemporary fame" (RedHanded)

"fantastically riveting" (RedHanded)

"rare skill... extremely intriguing/entertaining" (RedHanded)
