It begins with childhood photos that his father had taken Paul and Michael, then we slowly see Michael take hold of the camera and watch as Paul grows up as you progress through the book. This book isn't ALL about Paul, you'll find pictures of their mother and father, and tons of random shots of himself, Pete Best, George, John, Brian Epstein, Uncle Albert (remember the song?), Auntie Gin (song "Let'em In"), Jane Asher, The Goons, Elton John, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, and a few of and the earliest shots of Ringo before he trained his hair into a moptop. The best part about these photos is that he was there as the magic happened, for example a photo of Paul looking through a shop window at new italian-style boots that would soon become known as "beatle boots". George's first car (he was the first Beatle to get a car!) also gets a few photos, and also the proud moment of when he traded it in for a shiny new Jaguar. Michael was even invited backstage and to band parties, taking along his trusty camera to shoot some very in-the-moment photos. There are also photos of places like an overview of the city of Liverpool, the Pierhead, the Cavern Club, a Mersey riverboat, and overhead shot of their high school playground area. Michael was also an artist, he experimented with double exposures and silk-screening pictures, which shows up in this book as well. There are also pictures from the movie Help! that were deleted scenes from the film.
Anyway, there is too much to mention about this book. I really suggest you pick this up for yourself, a friend, or anyone who is a fan of old photographs or the Beatles.
of all beatle books, this is one of the very best. no poses, no fancy suits, just photos from paul mccartney's brother. i mean, i love it all, but these early pics are treasures. and they are printed very large, not little snap shots.

Mike McCartney was in the right place at the right time! These photos are historical, yes, but also his descriptions are quite humorous. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Jeffrey D. Farris
I absolutely love this book. I have a ton of Beatle picture books but this one has got to be my favorite. I'm fascinated by the early years and Mike has captured it for us to see! Read morePublished on July 17, 2011 by kimmouse
