American Songwriter is giving away 10 hardcover copies of FAB: An Intimate Life of Paul McCartney. One lucky winner will also receive the EMI box set: The Beatles Stereo Box Set (16 discs).

In June of 1942, Liverpool was in the midst of war. The British army was virtually surrounded by German troops at Tobruk in North Africa, the U.S. Navy had just won the battle of Midway, and the Germans were pushing deep into Russian territory. In the thick of all this, a baby was born. Little did his parents know they had just given birth to the most successful songwriter in the history of recorded sound – a man who would start a musical revolution.

Though Sir James Paul McCartney is one of the most famous, talented, and wealthiest men alive, there have been few written accounts detailing his life before and after The Beatles. Acclaimed author Howard Sounes now brings us Fab: An Intimate Life of Paul McCartney. The first exhaustive biography of Sir Paul, it tells the legendary musician’s whole life story – from childhood to present day, and from the beginning of The Beatles to his quest for a solo career to his disastrous second marriage to Heather Mills.

The Beatles Stereo Box Set has been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in London. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the catalogue has seen since its original release. The box set includes all 13 studio albums as well as 13 mini-documentaries on DVD.

  1. This book is not only badly written, it’s a hatchet job on Paul by a writer who doesn’t understand or appreciate his music. He wrote it to make a buck off a Beatle, not to offer any insights.

  2. I totally agree with Sue. This book is a piece of garbage. The man doesn’t like Macca, he doesn’t like his music, bashes Linda McCartney and then he writes a book about him. I just don’t get it. I don’t ask him to worship McCartney, I just think he should show at least a little respect for the man, for his family and his work. But no he goes on and on about his divorce and keeps calling his work rubbish. But then he worked for a tabloid, what should we expect ? Certainly not a good biography.
