David Bowie's career is defined by the 70's, his 'golden years'. This book chronicles Bowie's creative life during that decade in a year by year, month by month, day by day format, placing his works in their historical, personal and creative contexts. It details:

- Every live performance: when and where and who played with him
- Every known recording: session details, who played on it, who produced it and release details. Every collaboration is also covered, including production and guest appearances.
- Every film, stage and television appearance. Bowie brought his theatrical training into every performance and created a new form of rock spectacle.
- Documents Bowie on his journeys across the countries that fired his imagination and inspired his greatest work.

The book also contains a detailed illustrated discography documenting every Bowie recording during this period, including the tracks he left in the vault. Many of these ended up on reissues and compilations, all of which are covered comprehensively.
