Fab: An Intimate Life of Paul McCartney by Howard Sounes

Howard Sounes is the author of Down the Highway: The Life of Bob Dylan.  In this recently published biography of Paul McCartney, former Quarryman, Beatle, Wing, Poet, Father, Front man, Producer, Business Mogul, Painter, and Knight, he presents two years of investigation into every aspect of Macca's life and work.  He covers it all; early life, life as a Beatle, and even Paul's disastrous second marriage to Heather Mills.  To those who are well acquainted with McCartney, there won't be much new in this offering, but to the casual reader it's a pretty good summation of Paul's life up to this point.  There are quite a few Source Notes, a bibliography, an extensive index, and the requisite sprinkling of pictures.

McCartney is the most successful Beatle, not only musically, but financially.  This treatment of his life and times is another interesting piece of the puzzle.
