Or the one by Jim Hutton, Mercury and Me.
After reading your comments on Rick Sky's book, I am very surprised you DO like this book? Talking about back chat, hear say, sensation, etc. etc.
I do not like Hutton's book, because I really don't know what exactly to believe, it is all like one huge gossip story and because Freddie wanted to keep his personal life private, Jim should have respected that.
I like As it Began too, nice book.
But I'd say, buy whatever you like and make up your own mind :)
