i still remember the author's 60 Minutes interview for "Shout". "saying Paul will make things up, George is the only one you can get the truth from". Ringo just smoked joints according to the author, in "Shout".
I think the author got to know "Paul McCartney" as opposed to " Paul" whom, everyone knows.

Would you listen to Paul McCartney: The Biography again? Why?
Actually I've listened twice. A great book about the man and his life and not just his life as a Beatle. The narration was great the content relevant and up to date.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Paul McCartney: The Biography?
Listening to the story of how they recorded the album Band on the run in Africa not knowing how dangerous it was. And listening to how Paul overcame depression after the breakup of the Beatles and how he got on with life after Linda.
Which character – as performed by Jonathan Keeble – was your favorite?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes if I could've I would've.
Any additional comments?
A great addition to any true music lover's collection. A must hear!
While the author can come off a bit pompous and sneary towards Paul and does tend to focus on the negative comments, sometimes from a random eye witness or journalist, it is on the whole, an exceptionally detailed account of Paul's life, albeit second hand, as McCartney is not actually interviewed here, but has given his blessing to it being written.
I wish Norman focused a bit more on the music, how these songs were written and less on the tabloid stuff.
But, the narrator is very good. I think he did a Jagger biography I listened to as well. Very good Macca accent.
It documents McCartney's life all the way up to around 2014/15 and you just sit back listening and think " Wow, what a life....what a legend."

I got this as a 2 for 1 credit purchase but was slightly worried that 30 hours of biography was going to be heavy going but it was a gripping story and excellently narrated. Well worth the time taken to listen to.
