I wouldn't recommend it, unless you're a Paul girl through and through.

Well, it kind of uses the fact that it's a Paul biography to paint a picture of Paul being the best Beatle. Also, it's got some "facts" that aren't that reputable. I'm not the biggest fan, but, then again, I'm not the biggest fan of Beatle bios. (Shout!, The Lives of John Lennon, Many Years From Now, etc.)

I find Many Years From Now paints a bad portrait of Paul. Paul Seems really Arrogant and Condescending, which is Stupid.

I thought "Many years from now" painted a favourable picture of Paul as it is an authorized bio. Im surprised this is not the case.

I just read the new bio by Howard Sounes, see /forum/beatles-books/what%c2%b4s-the-best-mccartney-bio/

That sounds more like John to me... blue-meanie

 

I'm intrigued. Now I want to read MYFN.mal-evans

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I have to say... I started reading the bio and it was a total turn off because of the author's style. It's... how to say it? Chessy? Yeah. The description of Paul's concert where he played for the first time A Day in Life-Give Peace A Chance medley (Liverpool) was so-so. It's still my first book to read this year. a-hard-days-night-paul-1

Just read it (Got it for My Birthday. Thanks Mom!) and Boy is it an improvement over Many Years From Now.

I finished reading it and to be honest I enjoyed the Beatle times and the early Wings years because the author went into detail. The rest was like "Ok Paul went here and did this, and then he went here and did that". I'm definetly looking forward to read more about the Beatles, not only one of them.

My favorite bits were John and Paul's interaction. What John said to Jane Asher made me laugh out loud when I read it. Ahhh I love John.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

 

Ohh and look! I got a 9!! a-hard-days-night-john-2

Oh yeah that was really.. how to say it? I dunno, the best part was Ringo's comment : "She's just awful". a-hard-days-night-ringo-11

You know, if Ringo Hates someone, then she must have been bad

I think the worst part was her comment about a book about Paul . something like why Linda was all over the book and not her.

 

I know that great talent means most of the times great ego. But a massive ego with no talent makes a person totally useless.

That's not true (The Part that says Not as perfect as the Beatles).
