I never had any competition except from Marc Bolan... I fought like a madman to beat him. -- David Bowie
 Paul Roland has written the definitive book about Marc Bolan; an overdue reassessment of his sadly short but significant part in rock and roll history. -- Andy Ellison
 An awesome read for any Bolan fan as well as music fans in general and one that, to me personally, stands head and shoulders above all the other Bolan biographies..... Packed with rarely seen photographs, it tells the truth based on facts and interviews from those closest to Marc.... I do not believe anyone could write a more definitive story of Marc Bolan's life. -
