    1. This collection of essays was a lot of fun to read. It does take for granted that you have some knowledge of Bowie's back catalogue. But if you are unfamiliar with some of the songs referenced then it is easy to listen to them these days. The thing that I came away from this book thinking was that I was happy that Bowie never spent ages commenting on his own work, and in some cases remained an enigma to the end. It is fun watching various thinkers take on his work and attempt to shape it to the [...]

    2. I'm a sucker for this whole line, as I point out every time I finished one of these.

Bowie is seen as fake, although he worked very hard at everything he did, but he will be forever known as creating a new genre of music; I like to call Bowie-ism, basically it is just a collection of works that seems to change for no specific reason.

    4. **This book was reviewed for the San Francisco and Seattle Book Reviews**Rebel, Rebel is another great addition to the pop culture and philosophy series, this time focusing on music legend David Bowie. I grew up listening to Bowie's music of the 70s, which my parents enjoyed. Then, of course, there was Labyrinth, which ranks third among my most favourite childhood movies. Just recently, my family and I saw Labyrinth in the theatre for its 30th year anniversary, introducing it to a whole new gene [...]
