Enjoyed it immensely. Touches on everything from her life growing up in Britain, her modelling career to so many famous people in addition to George and Eric.

She has been with both George Harrison and Eric Clapton. She has a very fascinating story to tell. This is a very good bio in the rock category.this book is now available on Kindle and is sold for 1.99. I could not buy it again and re read it now on the kindle format. Sometimes the author seems to come across as 'poor me' and it's hard to feel sympathy for her as she is jet setting around the world , on retreats in Peru etc. etc. the only real interesting parts of the story is the Beatles, George Harrison and Eric Clapton parts. After about 80% of the book it becomes a bit of a chore. But, she is an interesting and beautiful lady and, hey, I bought the book twice so I still give it a 5 star rating.

Having been the lady behind "Something" and "Layla", whatever Ms Boyd has to show for it is doomed to score below the almost-boundless expectation one might have.

This book delivers its best content relating the time where both George and Eric were after Patti. The details of George's domestic conduct do not make for a comforting read.

Her childhood story, and everything after the Rainbow concert, seem less important in comparison, and fail to capture interest.

I expected and hoped that Ms. Boyd's book would be full of self-insights, musings and reflections on an unusual life that included growing up in Kenya, boarding schools, parental abandonment, a teenaged high-fashion career, eastern spiritual revivalism, passion and marriages to a couple of 60's music gurus. There is none of that; there is just a mechanical recital of colourless recollections written under the rather embarrassing delusion that the musicians to whom she once played muse were still pining away for her vacuous presence in their lives.

Every word on the page is grim evidence to the contrary.

Boy, where to start! Ms Boyd really doesn't have much to add to the George Harrison or Eric Clapton stories. Way too much info on her family background and growing up in Africa. Generally, the book is a stream of consciousness narrative that in places flits back and forth between time periods leaving the reader a bit confused. Her difficulty is that she has not done much with her life, aside from doing lunches, dinners, weekends away, homes and gardens, and 'find yourself' retreats. Unfortunately, she seems not to have found herself until the 21st century - a bit late. The main value of the book is its peek (without insight) into the drug and booze-adled life style of of the British '60s music, arts and fashion set(s) which seems to have continued on for decades. The book cannot compare in any way with Cynthia Lennon's 'John'.

I was greatly looking forward to reading this book, as I have always been fascinated with 60s/70s rock and pop culture. Pattie Boyd, married to two of the era's most iconic musicians, seemed to have an interesting tale to tell. Unfortunately, it's not found here. This is one of the worst autobiographies I have ever read. There's no chronological order and whatever insight she provides is terribly shallow with LOTS of name-dropping and insignificant details. It's also insulting to women...Pattie talks about how George Harrison closed her Harrod's account and she had to beg him to give her $5000 to buy Christmas presents and she also talks about she got bored with her Thames apartment and asked Eric Clapton to buy her a country cottage to use on the weekends. After he gives her a budget (of £300,000) she then has the gull to ask him to foot the repair/remodelling bill as well!!! Ugh...imo, Pattie came across as nothing more than brainless arm candy. She's not a sympathetic character, nor is she an interesting character apparently. Save your money.
