I don't know what to think of this book.
The website of the bookpublisher looks very amateuristic, and the host is a free webspace from provider Orange?
Also, no details on contained pictures?
No anouncement by Jarre/Thomas/Aero prod.?

I wouldn't be suprised when this unofficial biography is just some info grabbed from websites and other books, nothing we don't already know of.


I agree. I've been working on my Jarre biography for a long time.

200 odd pages for 60 years worth seems frightfully small - I can't imagine that there will be much depth here.

Still. Time will tell.

Looks like a self printed book. It does look interesting, but I question, how many of the images in that book have been sourced from the net and used.

Of course I'd do it with pleasure my dear, maybe I could help to make an english version to release (if he hears me :robertdugenou: )

10 years after, I'm translating the book, to be released on march 2019 :D
