--London Times

"In the flurry of books since Miles Davis's] death, none has dealt in depth with the music of this period. Music writer George Cole fills this gap. . . . a rich and rewarding read."
--Gazette (Montreal)

"A fascinating book."
--Mojo

"A singular look into the last stage of Davis's long, somewhat checkered career gained from various sources, which at the same time gives a picture of the modern music business."
--Midwest Book Review

"There are large chunks of fresh material here. . . . Fill s] in quite a few gaps and dismisses blanket condemnations of Miles's] pop phase."
--Jazzwise

"Thank you for telling it like it was "
--Randy Hall, singer and guitarist

"Very moving, emotional material."
--Gordon Meltzer, Miles's last road manager and executive producer of Doo-Bop
