Waste of time and space. As musician and Beatles fan, got absolutely bog all from this extended piece of toilet paper. Don't waste your time or MONEY! You see - Tomorrow DOES know.

3.0 out of 5 stars Abracadabra maybe,but not totally magic. 19 Jun 2013

Quite a good read with a lot of interesting facts, but gets bogged down with too many technical details. I,m not really bothered if George Martin wore a tie. ( George Harrison probably didn't like it anyway way) Still, it did reveal some little known bits of trivia. Definitely worth a purchase at the price with some interesting observations of life in sixties London.

I have read many Beatle books, whilst not claiming to be an expert,, i do enjoy reading anything related to The Beatles or their music.

This book was very well written, full of lots of details I had not read elsewhere and it should appeal to all Beatle fans.

Sgt Pepper is arguably their finest work, so it was refreshing to read about this gem of an album with fresh insights to the recording processes and the the influences from the prevailing culture.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book for Beatle fans 16 Dec 2012

This fairly slight book gives an interesting take on probably their best album.For a more in depth look at the making of this album l highly recommend Revolver by Robert Rodriguez.Finally I can't help but feel a better name for the album would have been to omit the first R,and call it Evolver.
