It's a solid recounting of Ringo's life and will be of interest to Beatles fans looking for more information on the least-chronicled member of the Fab Four. -Booklist Online
Extensive research and an injection of personality make this a definitive biography of the most underrated Beatle. -Foreword Reviews
Until Ringo pens his memoirs (if he ever does), this biography will serve as the most complete and up-to-date telling of his life story. --Library Journal Xpress Reviews, June 26, 2015
''Through assiduous research, the author (no relation) paints a nuanced picture of Ringo as a charismatic, likeable character, whose flaws were opened by success.'' -MOJO Magazine
''Too few books have chronicled Ringo Starr's professional and personal life, but this new tome by Michael Seth Starr (no relation) thoroughly examines the drummer's story from his Liverpool beginnings to his current solo career'' -Something Else Reviews
''Ringo: With a Little Help'' is clearly the definitive biography of one of the most famous musicians - or, heck, people - of the last century (though author Starr could not get subject Starr to participate). And, while he did get help along the way, Richard Starkey richly deserves this solid literary treatment. --Houston Chronicle --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

The book? Very informative and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not sure if the author had it proof read so you will encounter typos, poor grammar and just plain writing errors...but ignore them.
But it was Ringo's post-Beatles life that was most interesting, for this is the lesser known part of his tale. It is amazing that he abused alcolhol for as long as he did and is still around today. He seems to have found peace in his old age.
Beatles fans should find this an enjoyable ride.

Those who sneer at Richard Starkey and call him "the luckiest man who ever lived" are just ignorant....they haven't LISTENED to his contribution to the Beatles' recordings. His idiosyncratic drumming was a major factor in making their sound what it was. Just listen to the drumming track on "Rain", or watch him in action on footage of the live concerts, rather than the TV sessions when they were all miming and the guitars weren't even plugged in! No wonder that all he could do was nod and smile.
He's a man of contradictions, like all four of them. This book reflects it all.
So maybe his singing wasn't great, but it improved with age!
Rimane comunque una lettura piacevole e di buon ripasso generale per chi ha bisogno di avere tutto dei Fab4.
