Marc Spitz. Jagger: Rebel, Rock Star, Rambler, Rogue. Gotham Books. "When Keith Richards’s Life arrived last year, nice things were said about Mr. Richards, whose book said nasty things about Mick Jagger. Mr. Jagger has not struck back with his own side of the story. But Marc Spitz’s Jagger is an eager hagiography that takes aim at Mr. Richards while trumpeting Mr. Jagger’s overlooked fine qualities. Although Mr. Spitz calls himself a neutral party, Jagger is out to settle scores" [Janet Maslin, The New York Times, 8/30/11].
