Format: Hardcover
I was looking forward to this read on the beach on my holidays. It rained, but that was not the main disappointment.

I have no objection to a little tittle tattle about a rock god, but this book is way over the top. Maybe Mick Jagger has slept with 4000 women (and boy is it difficult to keep up witht he few who are mentioned by name), but he is known primarliy for his career with the Rolling Stones. And this book delvers very little on that front.

I am no lover of detail - I wouldn't know the difference bewteen a Fender and a Stratocaster - but a book on Mick Jagger must include something about the music and the touring. A minimum effort at the very least. And there is close to nothing: who wrote what, when, how? Who decided what, why? What were the choices with regard to arrangements, producers, musicians, etc. Nothing.

Disappointing.

Format: Hardcover
I quite enjoyed the book, which is an unauthorised biography. It's readable, and relatively short, just over 300 pages, and it covers a large number of the details that have made the press during the past 50 years.

I particularly enjoyed the first half of the book, dealing with the 60s and 70s, which brought back many memories of the band's tempestuous early history. The latter part of the book dwelt, to a greater extent, on Mick's extensive love-life, and perhaps became a bit of a grind (sic) in places, but, as I said, the book seems to be concentrating primarily on the things that made the news.

When I read the book, I was unaware that Philip Norman has since put out a Jagger biography, or I might have gone for that instead, because I have read his 'John Lennon - A Life', which is superb.

Anyway, I did enjoy it overall, and it left me with some interesting new perspectives on Mick Jagger, who will turn 70 tomorrow! Roll on Mick!

This book is crap. Probably the worst Stones book I`ve read. Not very well written and full of mistakes. If you found the paper
News of the world a great read this might be right up your alley.
I would say it`s better to lose £18.95 than purchase this item !
