Unmatched as an icon, and second only to Elvis Presley as rock’s consummate sex symbol, Mick Jagger has a star-streaked life story that makes for a spicy read. Phil Norman—an author known for the definitive biography of Jagger’s old rivals, the Beatles—lays it out demonstrably, with all of the headline-baring details intact. Unlike Jagger’s colleague Keith Richards’ recent autobiography, this book—arriving just as the Rolling Stones celebrate their fiftieth year together—benefits from the literate structure of Norman’s prose, as well as from James Langton’s vibrant reading, in which his slightly Scottish brogue resonates with wry subtlety and mellifluous patterns. Each phase of Jagger’s storied career is dissected, revealing an immense ambition that has guided him throughout his path of unrivaled success and longevity.
