Overview

Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger by Christopher Andersen

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christopher Andersen tears the mask from rock’s most complex and enigmatic icon in a no-holds-barred biography as enticing as Jagger himself.

Is he Jumpin’ Jack Flash? A Street Fighting Man? A Man of Wealth and Taste? All this, it turns out, and far more. By any definition, Mick Jagger is a force of nature, a complete original—and undeniably one of the dominant cultural figures of our time. Swaggering, strutting, sometimes elusive, always spellbinding, he grabbed us by our collective throat a half-century ago and—unlike so many of his gifted peers—never let go. For decades, Mick has jealously guarded his many shocking secrets—until now. As the Rolling Stones mark their 50th anniversary, #1 New York Times bestselling author Christopher Andersen tears the mask from rock’s most complex and enigmatic icon in a no-holds-barred biography as impossible to ignore as Jagger himself.

As a journalist who covered the Stones in the past, I can attest to the fact that "Mick" is the real deal. And a fun read.

What a fun read and just the right distraction from a hot and boring political season! I love the honesty and the celebration that is Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones. OMG 50 years!!??

Exactly the kind of book you'd expect from a former People editor: shallow, catty and vacuous. It's a study in stretching half true snippets to the breaking point. Hard to recommend it to even hardcore Stones fans.

I felt at times that I was reading a tabloid, but this is well worth the read for any Stones or Jagger fan. Would have loved to hear a little less about the women even though it is a big part of Mick's charm. He is as enigmatic a human as ever was, even if he bared his soul we may never know what makes Sir Mick tick.

This was an interesting read as far as Jagger's life goes--the excesses are many and often unexpected--but it reads like one big expose, tabloid-style. The repeadted excesses described one after the other become overwhelming and repetitive. Perhaps this is inherent in the telling of the life of such a person, but i wish there would have been more insight into the causes of his beghavior, his misogynistic attitudes, his disregard for others, etc. It WAS entertaining, though!

Zzzzzz...should've been renamed "I, Me, Mine" after the George Harrison song. Read Keith's bio, it's far superior.

Well, as someone who has followed the Stones since the early 1970s, I learned...well, next to nothing from this "new" book. OK, I learned too things. Jagger's daughter was (still is?) dating Sean Lennon. And Keith has bad arthritis, I didn't know that. The rest of it? Ho hum. Recycled stories (Marianne with the candy bar! Mick and David Bowie caught in bed!) Move on, nothing to see here!

Mick could never sing on key, but he sure knows how to wiggle his ass

Mick Jagger is nothing more than a puke - pure and simple.

The manner in which the cover design apes that of Keith Richards' autobiography is rather pathetic.
