    A True Rock 'N' Roll Urban Legend

    A very unusual and minor facet of the Beatles's history, this book must certainly capture every conceivable angle about it. There are interviews and vignettes and a complete history of the rumor of Paul McCartney's death and why it became such a huge story. I was blown away by the detail and depth of this examination. And it was fun to read, too!

    Stunningly good.  I was expecting a potboiler, a conspiracy-craz

    Stunningly good.  I was expecting a potboiler, a conspiracy-crazed rant.  But this study is exhaustive and well-researched.  I learned a lot from it -- and it actually aims to "solve" the mystery.  I'm not sure it achieved its goal, but it came closer than any other account I've ever read on the topic.  Well worth the money and the time.
