About the author


"If you are a fan of Iron Maiden, then The Ultimate Unauthorized History Of The Beast is a must own book for your collection. If you are a casual fan wanting to learn more about Iron Maiden and their amazing history, then consider this your Bible." -

“This is quite possibly the most definitive tome on these British godfathers to date, which means you shouldn’t let the “unauthorized” tag throw you.” -

“In all, Daniels has crafted a very high-level and easy read with Iron Maiden - The Ultimate Unauthorized History of the Beast, and top it all off, it's packaged expertly, prime for your coffee table, where Eddie's piercing eyes await.” -
“…when it comes to a combination of biographical information, great photos and useful information, ‘Iron Maiden: The Ultimate Unauthorized History of the Beast’ can’t be topped.” -

“IRON MAIDEN: THE ULTIMATE UNAUTHORIZED HISTORY OF THE BEAST I believe is that book, the best, most comprehensive look at the band so far. Every Maiden fan should have this in their library.” -

“This is definitely a must-own for any Maiden fan or any fan of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal scene. For metal-merch fanatics like me, it's like porn. I would do bad things for the Maiden baseball tee on page 81.” - Houston Press

“The book successfully brings together the graphic reproductions in a high-quality format with a hard-cover binding, heavy paper, and a die-cut cover that draws attention and closer scrutiny.” - Vintage Guitar
