If you’re not a fan of Paul McCartney when you start this book, you will be when you’re done. Narrator Jonathan Keeble recounts McCartney's life story, starting with his tough childhood and early performing years in Liverpool and Berlin. It would have been criminal to have an American read Philip Norman's tell-all book. Keeble's delightful British accent makes it sound real. The lengthy production is full of amazing stories and could be twice as long. It puts McCartney under a microscope and pulls no punches about the ex-Beatle's ego; legendary cheapness; love of his late first wife, Linda; and stormy relationship with John Lennon, as well as the breakup of The Beatles. (It was actually a slow disintegration.) Overall, McCartney comes across as a great musician, caring father, and incredible human being. M.S.
