The first full-length authorised biography of Paul McCartney. Based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews and complete access to McCartney's own archives, this is as near as we will come to McCartney in his own words. It's the private life of a man made public propertyby the age of 21. It's the trajectory of the most popular pop group in history, from the beginnings to break-up. It's the story of Swinging London in the 60s with Paul McCartney at the very centre of it all. It's music, drugs, women, money, madness, the Maharishi, love, peace and bitterness: its the Beatles from beginning to end as never told before.
