Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain, Please Kill Me (1996)

Nothing will bring Iggy and The Stooges to life like this oral history of punk music, culled from hundreds of interviews with the people who lived through it.

Paul Trynka, Iggy Pop: Open Up and Bleed (2007)

There is no shortage of books on Iggy Pop, but this one is particularly passionate and comprehensive. It shows great insight into what made Iggy such a powerful figure.

Richard Adams, The Complete Iggy Pop (2006)

Essentially a discography in book form, The Complete Iggy Pop designates at least a paragraph to every song by The Stooges and Iggy Pop, from 1969's The Stooges to 2005's Skull Ring.
