I'm reading The White Book by Ken Mansfield right now and so far I'm enjoying it very much. Being a record company executive gave him a different perspective.

Here is an excerpt from the book:

"You didn't promote a Beatles record -you just hang on when one came out. While I was busy living in the trenches with my other artists, trying to get their records played, I was also spending half my time trying to keep stations from playing advanced copies of new Beatles releases until all the stations could get their own copy."

I also just received the new Paul biography, can't wait to read that!

Not bad, but I'm kind of disappointed because I was expecting more. There is not much new material and the book feels hurried. I guess 400 pages are just not enough to cover Paul's life. The book also feels... uninvolved, if that makes sense. I don't think the author really "gets" Paul, so he doesn't really give an insight of who he really is, his motivations etc.
I pretty much agree with this review:

I got "John" today! I'm looking forward to reading it tomorrow!  ;D
From reading the introduction by Julian it sounds like it's going to be a good read!
