In three years of research, Norman has turned up an extraordinary amount of new information about even the best-known episodes of Lennon's folklore: his upbringing by his strict Aunt Mimi; his allegedly wasted school and student days; the evolution of his peerless creative partnership with Paul McCartney; his Beatle-busting love affair with a Japanese performance artist; his forays into painting, literature, and drugs.
The book's numerous key informants and interviewees include Sir Paul McCartney, Sir George Martin, Sean Lennon, whose moving reminiscence reveals his father as never before, and Yoko Ono, who speaks with sometimes shocking candour about her marriage to John.

I have been a Beatles fan from childhood on, so I found it fascinating to listen to Lennon's life story. The text provides a good mixture of information both about his private life as well as his professional life. When people write about John Lennon, they either describe him as an eccentric, uneducated person or as a genius from another world. Here, you get a glimpse of his whole personality.
