It's a book length fan letter/diary entry; if you can get past the beginning, where Sheffield uses Bowie quote after quote as lines in the book in a way to say, "look, this is how much I know about him," you will be treated to a rambling yet very astute meditation on the role Bowie played in society and in the lives of his listeners album by album. Slightly younger than the author, ON BOWIE helped me realize why I thought this guy was interesting but I didn't listen to him as a teen -- he was making some of his worst music, while many of the bands he inspired were making some of their best.
