1.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book but a terrible E-book - Don't buy for Kindle, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The print edition of this is lovely, and I thought I'd try the E-book, but it's not compatible with either e-ink Kindle devices OR EVEN the Kindle desktop app for Mac. It looks nice on my Nexus 4 but the print is tiny and unresizable. Which leaves only a tablet that it's probably any use for (haven't tested that) - this should be flagged in BIG LETTERS - basically it's not, by any stretch of the imagination a "Kindle Edition".

3.0 out of 5 stars Moderately interesting opportunistic ebook, 21 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good idea to recycle archive articles in ebook form, at an impulse-buy price, but the execution is a bit poor. Being Guardian articles it's hard to know of some of the typos have been left in from the original editions or introduced in the conversion process. A piece about McCartney's birthday was incorrectly dated July 18th (should be June), which, given there were also references to the Olympics and the Diamond Jubilee is liable to confuse.

Given the articles are all from the Guardian, there is nothing like the range of Mike Evans's "Paperback Writer" anthology. Some of the articles chosen are quite slight, but there are enough meaty ones to make it worth the small price of entry, and it's an interesting enough addition to the standard accounts of the Beatle chronology. But the Evans book is still probably better value .The Beatles Paperback Writer: 40 Years of Classic Writing
