Considered by many as lucky to have been in The Beatles, Ringo Starr epitomizes the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. World-famous pop star, acclaimed film actor, the voice of an internationally successful children's TV series and husband to a glamorous movie star - at face value he seems to have led a charmed life. Yet behind the sunglasses and the ready quips loom the horrors of his health problems, alcoholism, and deprived family background.
This abridged version of Ringo Starr spotlights one of the most colorful personalities in rock 'n' roll.

Alot of big words.
What the heck?
I haven't bought this book and never will!!! How can anyone sell a book about Ringo to his fans with an intro such as this one "considered by many as lucky to have been in the Beatles" heck no! The beatles were lucky to have him! Or they wouldn't have been as amazing as the were! Dissapointed and let down! The book should highlight Ringo not degrade him!
This abridged book was so abridged that people brought up in the book aren't explained as to who they were and how they were involved in Ringo's life. It has events out of order too, and leaves out some very important events, as I have read several good biographies about the Beatles. I just cannot recommend this to anyone who is serious about finding out more about Ringo.
