Some lovely photos are supplemented with text from a Paul McCartney interview. At the end is a discography and concert listing. It took me about half an hour to read through the book but it could as easily be a coffee table book with it's large LP size, plenty of pictures and minimal text. It's by no means a comprehensive history of the band - just simply a collection of photos in order from the late 60s to 1980, along with snipets from an extensive McCartney interview done for the book. Not essential but a pleasant read which gives you some insight to the 1970-80 period of his career.
