It is unusual to read an autobiography like this and get such detail and a sense of character. Usually, the writing is extremely lazy and they pretty much rehash things everyone already knows. However, with this book, you get very detailed anecdotes about working at Apple Corp., living at George Harrison's Frair Park, working for Mick Jagger, working on famous tours, etc. I read the book and was very pleasantly surprised so I got the audio version. It was just as good to listen to.

I've read most of the books about the Beatles and the Stones, and this is one of the least informative . . . but somehow it manages to be among the most entertaining. Certainly NOT a scholorly analysis of the musical or cultural impact of our greatest musical legends, "Miss O'Dell" is nonetheless a fascinating insider's view of what these artists' lives were like outside the studio. Perhaps even more interesting is her detailed descriptions of what life was like for the people just outside the spotlights: wives, friends, employees and hangers-on. If you want exhaustive details on the Beatles recordings or musical legacy, listen to Geoff Emerick's excellent "Here, There and Everywhere." But if you've ever wondered what it would be like to live in the roiling wake of our greatest rock stars, artistic genuises and cultural icons, "Miss O'Dell" should be at the very top of your list. I loved it.
