Well,please click on the highlighted link for the very good description of this book.It actually says that some of Paul's Wings songs are some of his greatest songs so after Philip so unjustly minimized Paul in Shout etc,it looks like he's finally giving him the credit he deserves.
I haven't read his John Lennon:The Life book, but I first read the excellent,empathetic book,Lennon by award winning music journalist and former Melody Maker editor Ray Coleman in 1985, a few years ago I got the updated version,and I still believe it's the most accurate and the most to be trusted.
Ray met John as an early Beatle in 1962,and he remained good friends with John right till the end,and he spent a lot of time with him and interviewed him over these 18 years.He does report John's bad sides and behavior,but he also knew and reports his good sides and qualities and he totally understands John and how he was psychologically damaged by the traumas in his childhood and teens and how he worked on himself and changed for the better especially during his last 5 years of his life.He says in the introduction,that to know John was to love him,Phillip Norman never really knew John and wasn't a friend!
Also if Philip Norman did such a ''good job'' on this John biography,then why do quite a few people say in reviewing it that John was a horrible insensitive person and that reading the book made them hate John!? Like this review on Barnes and Noble.com titled,A good Read But Drags, that says that John was a horrible insensitive person and that he made fun of black,gay,and mentally and physically disabled people(this was when John was a *very young psychologically messed up guy*!),and said he deserved to survive the bullets and be a brain damaged quadriplegic!http://www.barnesandnoble.com/reviews/john-lennon-philip-norman/1100555558?ean=9780060754020#reviews-header
It's very obvious that Philip Norman writes a lot of sensationalism a lot that isn't even true to sell his books! He's probably going to do the same thing with his new Paul biography too unfortunately.
