Brown, Jenny - "Million Dollar Riff" (Dingo Books, 1975)
Peter writes: "160 pages of 'Hooks history up to the point where they signed the infamous multi million dollar deal just prior to their American Tour. With Jenny Brown on the road for some of the USA Tour, part two of this book would have been really fascinating. It was THE book to have in the seventies, we all read and re-read it hundreds of times. The photographs are still a highlight. Sadly long sold out, but try 2nd hand book shops. It was a Top 10 seller."

Jenkins, Jeff - "Ego Is Not A Dirty Word" (Kelly & Withers, 1994)
Peter wrote in 1997: "In 1994. we all gave time and archive material to the Jeff Jenkins project "Ego Is Not A Dirty Word." The book, like many things, was meant to co-incide with the Skyhooks/Daddy Cool "Joint Effort" Reunion Tour. The tour never did happen, but this book did. 186 pages and it takes us up to the band in the studio recording NEW material. Some great photos, many never seen before and an interesting read."

Barkla, Maree - "Skyhook Book" (Self-published, 1990)
Peter wrote in 1997: "In 1990, a young girl called Maree Barkla was in contact with all of us about her Skyhooks book. It was something she wanted to do. The book was dedicated to the people who have always believed in her. It's 105 pages long and the printing quality is of low standard, but something about it makes it a must have. Possibly the interviews. It was released under her own publications (Maree) and is no longer available."

From The Vault Magazine: Vol. 1, Issue 4 - "The Skyhooks Issue"
Peter wrote in 1997: "OK, it's not a book but it's a great reference point. PLUS limited copies contained the rare Skyhooks flexi-disc with "Sweet Sister" / "Guitar Thunders In My Hand" on it. Ian McFarlane wrote and researched the article (with some help from Greg, Mark Goulding and myself.) There is a great Skyhooks family tree, and he invaded our record collection for a pretty good discography. Sadly, the magazine called it a day sometime during Volume 2."
