Living in Ann Arbor among Iggy's childhood friends and pre-fame lovers, and interviewing dozens of musicians including Iggy himself, Paul Trynka has created a sincere and fascinating portrayal of the real man behind the rock star.

"Trynka captures Iggy's debauchery in an obsessively detailed and compulsively readable biography that is as high-energy and entertaining as its subject." (Publishers Weekly)
"This fitting biography...finally tells the full story of Iggy's life, rescuing coherence from a tale of thrills, contradictions, debauchery, betrayal, and (ultimately) redemption." (Booklist)
"Journalist Trynka...deftly walks the line between fan boy and dogged researcher...The result is a complete portrait of the man and his work...This is the definitive word on Iggy, elbowing past even his autobiography." (Library Journal)
This book (and Iggy's story) is one of the most boring and banal books I've downloaded. There are so many eyerolling moments I'm having a hard time getting through to the end. Only a teenager in the 70's would find this story compeling or salacious. A real life Spinal Tap for the punk movement...
