Publisher's Summary

Since the age of 20, Paul McCartney has lived one of the ultimate rock 'n' roll lives played out on the most public of stages. Now Paul's story is told by rock music's foremost biographer, with McCartney's consent and access to family members and close friends who have never spoken on the record before.
Paul McCartney reveals the complex character behind the façade and sheds new light on his childhood - blighted by his mother's death but redeemed by the father who introduced him to music.

Detailed biography of a true genius

While the author can come off a bit pompous and sneary towards Paul and does tend to focus on the negative comments, sometimes from a random eye witness or journalist, it is on the whole, an exceptionally detailed account of Paul's life, albeit second hand, as McCartney is not actually interviewed here, but has given his blessing to it being written.
I wish Norman focused a bit more on the music, how these songs were written and less on the tabloid stuff.
But, the narrator is very good. I think he did a Jagger biography I listened to as well. Very good Macca accent.
It documents McCartney's life all the way up to around 2014/15 and you just sit back listening and think " Wow, what a life....what a legend."
