Sir Paul's thoughts and dreams have become chapters in two new books. In Lauren Lawrence's Private Dreams of Public People (Assouline, £24.95/$34.95) the author analyses the dreams of celebrities in personal "therapy sessions". She examines Sir Paul's story about writing Yesterday as a result of a dream he had. Sir Paul remembers, "I thought that's a good tune. I wonder what that is? I went to John first, then our producer. I said what is this tune, dah-da-dah? They said, 'Don't know, but it's good.'"
The analysis: Sir Paul's discovery dream reveals how the unconscious mind works, and how involved it is in our everyday lives.
Sir Paul contributed a chapter to Marlo Thomas's new book, The Right Words at the Right Time." (Pocket Books, £17.20/$25.00). Celebrities such as Sir Paul, Muhammad Ali, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, Ralph Lauren, Sammy Sosa, Jay Leno, Quincy Jones, and Gwyneth Paltrow were asked to tell a story about the best advice they were ever offered. Sir Paul tells about the advice he received from his mother, Mary, to "Let it be."
Proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit he St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, founded by Marlo's father, Danny Thomas.
