Random House, Inc.
He is one of the most famous, most wealthy people on the planet, and yet he remains little-known and understood as a personality. At long last, Paul McCartney is the subject of a major, deeply researched, psychologically acute biography. It tells a story that will illuminate and surprise.

The publication finds McCartney - who turns 70 in 2012 - revitalized as a performer (touring with a set of mostly Beatles songs) and a man buffeted by profound changes in recent years: the death of his first wife, Linda; the death of George Harrison; a second marriage, to Heather Mills, and its spectacular failure, the fall-out from which is still crashing around him.

lots of detail, you can tell the author did his research. At times, I enjoyed the stories and points of view of people who are close with Paul (like family members) but overall, I didn't really like the way it was written; it seemed sort of flat. (But then again, I may be bias since I already know a lot about Paul's life).

Kind of touches on why he is an ego driven a$%^hole.

The focus is on McCartney's amazing life. Lots of engrossing, well-documented material.
