The bestselling author of the definitive biography of former Beach Boy Brian Wilson offers new insight into the life and music of Paul McCartney, one of the world''s most popular and influential musicians.
"[This] freshly humanized mess reveals an icon whose instant fame hid many of the traits that made him brilliant and exasperating in equal measure."
"An excellent pop-culture biography."
"In PAUL MCCARTNEY: A LIFE, Peter A. Carlin offers a reconsideration of the dynamics of [the Beatles] and McCartney's role in it, arguing that Paul was as much a leader as John. But he also offers a complex portrait of an artist whose insecurities were fanned when he was in the presence of talented musicians with strong artistic visions, but who did his best work when around them."
