    A brilliant, must-have book

    This wonderful book is beautifully written and beautifully produced. The authors Tony Bacon and Gareth Morgan have done a superb job of presenting McCartney's music and showing just why it works so well. All Beatles fans, all fans of the bass guitar, and all pop fans everywhere should buy this book.
