Author Phillip Norman, whose previous bestseller, John Lennon: The Life, was praised as a “haunting, mammoth, terrific piece of work” (New York Times Book Review) and whose classic Shout! is widely considered to be the definitive biography of the Beatles, now turns his attention to the iconic front man of the Rolling Stones, “the greatest rock ’n’ roll band in the world.” Norman’s Mick Jagger is an extraordinarily detailed and vibrantly written in-depth account of the life and half-century-long career of one of the most fascinating and complex superstars of rock music—the most comprehensive biography to date of the famously enigmatic musician. Keith Richards had his say in Life. Now it’s time to get to know intimately the other half of the duo responsible for such enduring hits as “Paint It Black,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Gimme Shelter,” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Mick Jagger is a must read for Stones fans, and everyone who can’t get enough of the serious memoirs and biographies of popular musicians, like Patti Smith’s Just Kids, Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? by Steven Tyler, and the Warren Zevon story, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This delightfully intrusive biography by Philip Norman is likely to remain the most definitive word on the pouty-mouthed Rolling Stones front-man.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “The second, livelier, and all-around better of two major unauthorized Jagger biographies out in time for the Rolling Stones’ 50th year…An enjoyable, entertaining biography.”

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Christa | 2/18/2014

    " Interesting- does not seem to be written with his permission. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mike Bingley | 2/16/2014

    " Mick Jagger really doesn't come across as a very nice man. He treats his wives and (many) girlfriends badly and is really only interested in money and himself. He really comes across as a spoiled upper middle class kid who has always gotten his own way. That being said, this is an interesting read and one that I would recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Alex Rivas | 2/9/2014

    " Like his book on John Lennon "The Life" and The Beatles "Shout" this book is a long and dry read. Too much attention to gossip surrounding the life of Mick Jagger and too little attention to his music, the art of songwriting and performance of one of the most prolific and icons of Rock and Roll. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jeffrey McKinley | 1/25/2014

    " (Read 1/23/13) A well written biography of one of rock and roll's great icons. "
