On Bowie is a thoughtful and loving meditation on the life of the late David Bowie that explores his creative legacy and the enduring and mutual connection he enjoyed with his fans

Innovative. Pioneering. Brave. Until his death in January 2016, David Bowie created art that not only pushed boundaries, but helped fans understand themselves and view the world from fantastic new perspectives.

When the shocking news of his death on January 10, 2016 broke, the outpouring of grief and adulation was immediate and ongoing. Fans around the world and across generations paid homage to this brilliant, innovate, ever-evolving artist who both shaped and embodied our times.

In this concise and penetrating book, highly-regarded Rolling Stone critic, bestselling author, and lifelong Bowie fan Rob Sheffield shares his own feelings about the passing of this icon and explains why Bowie's death has elicited such an unprecedented emotional outpouring from so many.

MEDIA REVIEWS
No rock critic- living or dead, American or otherwise - has ever written about pop music with the evocative, hyperpoetic perfectitude of Rob Sheffield -- Chuck Klosterman, author of Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs
In Sheffield's hands, pop music is more than an object of cultural consumption - it becomes the language through which to navigate and negotiate his most intimate moments * The Atlantic *
Sheffield uses music the way some people use scripture-to elucidate and sanctify the mysteries of life. He raises teen angst into high art that is funny, charming, and profoundly pleasurable * Darcey Steinke *
