Here’s a passively bad book that, while purporting McCartney was Lennon’s musical equal (at least), does little to evoke that spirit, or, in fact, much sympathy for its subject. Salewicz’s main theme—that the early death of Paul’s mother was pretty much his sole motivation—is harped on frequently...and the dope didn’t even manage to include a picture of the mysterious mom.
