May Pang reveals the true story behind John Lennon's infamous "Lost Weekend," a period when John was separated from Yoko and his drunken escapades in LA were captured by the media. The author tells of a different John when away from Ono's intense manipulation: a more social and loving man. May encouraged John to reestablish a relationship with his son Julian. During this period, he recorded Walls and Bridges, one song featuring Lennon with Elton John.

Although this time is called the Lost Weekend, one can see that John flourished and was beginning to come into his own. John - who had never even ordered his own room service - became more independent and self-sufficient while away from Yoko. However, John returned to Ono eventually, and the book gives startling insight into how Yoko accomplished this feat.
