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.

At age 70, I have been a hard-core Mick Jagger fan for a long time, since 1965 to be truthful. To watch that man strut onto the stage and open a show is an awe inspireing event. He is a masterful musician who knows all about the blues, academically, theatrically, and most likely, internally. Andersen is an entertaining writer of gossip and fame, fans of Jagger looking for juicy gossip will find pleanty of it in this book. Sadly, what I didn't find, was anything close to the soul of Mick Jagger. It's hard for me to believe that he is nothing more than a great rock musician, totally into drugs, sex and RnR. Andersen does not begin to cover his time spent at the prestigious London School of Economics, though he does dwell at length on his astute business sense. Jagger has been married and partnered with many, but the reader will not get a glimpse of his wives and girlfriends as anything more than sex machines. His children are mentioned briefly, but there is no sense of Jagger the father or grandfather. This was the first biography I've read of Mick Jagger. I hope he tells his own story someday, because the celeb writers drawn to him do not seem to do this man justice. As a fan I find Jagger to be on fire! I can not believe he is this cold, calculating narcist who is somehow, the greatest living Rock legend. I'd love to learn more about the mystical aspects of his life and how they affect his artistry.

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.
