My Recommendation: If you are searching only an autobiographical book on the style of "Reg Dwight was born..." and so on, maybe this is not the book you are looking for. More than this, Liz Rosenthal includes exclusive behind the-scenes information we won't find anywhere else: concerts through the years, complete song reviews (a source for this blog, of course) and finally, fascinating anecdotes and untold story behind his flamboyant costumes. With 40 black and white photographs and a complete discography.

My Recommendation: This is an incredible collection of rare photographs and interview material, including fanzines, the greatest and most extensive albums reviews by the only one Jim Turano, elton's duets, memorabilia, trivia, concert highlights and even an extensive chapter on Bernie Taupin.
