The eagerly-awaited personal memoir by award-winning author Geoffrey Notkin, and star of the popular television adventure series, Meteorite Men.

A science writer and television host with a rock ’n’ roll heart
describes his exciting, and sometimes astonishing, quest for meaning and understanding in an unexplainable universe.
From the smoking volcanoes of Iceland to the sunblasted
wasteland of Chile’s Atacama Desert, and the Australian Outback to the Siberian Arctic, Geoffrey Notkin recounts a forty-year odyssey of adventure that takes him to some of the world’s strangest and wildest places—where music and meteorites are often the only sign posts.

Fourteen years in the making, Rock Star, chronicles Geoff's incredible adventures across four continents in search of elusive space rocks, his career as a rock 'n' roll musician, and his childhood in an oppressive British public school. It is populated by a cast of fascinating, larger-than-life characters, and relates hilarious behind-the-scenes stories about the making of Geoff's numerous TV shows. A unique, unforgettable, and beautifully-told story of adventure, passion, determination, danger, frustration, and ultimate triumph. More >>>

first bio, as I am with this book. I exhort all readers to

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NEIL GAIMAN
2012 IPPY AWARD-WINNING BOOK
“Geoffrey Notkin is a mild-mannered Englishman who, once he dons his hunting gear, becomes an intrepid explorer for treasure. His quarry is not of this planet, but fragments of other planets that have landed on Earth. His searches take him to remote locations all over the globe and his accounts are filled with adventure, daring, and a shared sense of humanity. Why would a seemingly normal person take up such a pursuit? Because the fragments he finds tell us about the origins of our solar system and our place in the universe.”

"In 1997, on our first expedition to Chile’s Atacama Desert,
I learned that Geoff was a natural at meteorite hunting. It wasn’t until later, however, when Geoff wrote an amazing account of that excursion in a magazine article, that I also began to appreciate his literary skills. If you enjoy Geoff on Meteorite Men you are going to love this book. No commercials, no meteorwrongs, no me interrupting him with offers of beef jerky—just Geoff waxing eloquent about these remarkable treasures from space. It doesn’t get any better than this!”
