really liked it
Read in December, 2010

Positively surprised by this well-balanced and well researched biography. It must be one of the best ones written about a member of the Beatles, if not the best one.
Why I don't give a 5 star rating: sometimes the book felt a bit too "intimate". Also, as many biographers of musicians, Sounes did at times strongly put forward his opinions about Macca's music - even though he set out to make this book about Sir Paul's LIFE.
But all in all having read the official biography that made almost a saint out of him and another book making a pervy villain out of him this book is nontheless the best and most interesting one that you can find about Sir Paul.

Kelley I'm just about in the middle of this book but I agree with you about it being too intimate, as well as being dismayed by Sounses' editorializing. Not that I don't agree with him at times, but he seemed like he may have had an agenda, especially in regards to Linda.
