What a life,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paul McCartney: A Life (Hardcover)
Paul McCartney: A Life I have hundreds of books on the Beatles and quite a few solely dedicated to Sir Macca. Some I have read in an attempt to reconcile myself with parting with such large amounts of cash and have soon become bored and put them down. I ended up reading this one simultaneously with another recent publication which claimed to be unbiased, accurate etc etc. fab my *rse! I have to conclude that having simply compared the two (alongside my own knowledge of the Fabs and Macca) that A Life is one of the best reads of MaccaBeatleness (and believe me books on these two subjects are published thick and fast). The research and attention to detail on who's quoting this and that is spot on, together with little bits ive never heard about (e.g Macca arranged for a fridge to be delivered to a neighbour of the Asher family ('65ish) as a thank you for his covert part 'the escape plan'... through his house/over roofs!). These little anecdotes made this book special to a discerning and long time fan.
