"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)
"A meticulous and engaging insight into the golden years of one of pop's true innovators" (Mark Radcliffe)
"A book of substance that compels you to listen to Bowie's best-known songs afresh and his less obvious songs anew" (Patrick McNamee Time Out)
"This book tracks Bowie's ever-changing masks and alter egos...[and] helps answer the question that most Bowie fans have asked at one time or another: what the hell is he on about?" (Kevin Courtney Irish Times)
"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)
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.
