5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for a Beatle fan, 29 Dec 2011
By 
H. C. Van Zee "beatle fan" (Netherlands) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Complete Beatles Chronicle: The Definitive Day-By-Day Guide to the Beatles' Entire Career (Paperback)
This is a classic. A superbly researched book that is written very well. Since the story of The Beatles has been told over and over again you may find things very familiar. Yet this book is so detailed and has a great section on pre Beatles and early Beatles history that even for that it's worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shame the front cover photo is back to front, 15 April 2012
This review is from: The Complete Beatles Chronicle: The Definitive Day-By-Day Guide to the Beatles' Entire Career (Paperback)
Shame the front cover photo is back to front! Apart from that, detailed and scholarly as you'd expect from Mark Lewisohn: a bit like the Complete Recordings book, but with all the gigs and other Beatle events included. Though I reckon anyone coming to this book afresh, in 2012, should probably wait for the new ultra-definitive one Lewisohn (apparently) has planned.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great piece of history, 30 Oct 2011
This review is from: The Complete Beatles Chronicle: The Definitive Day-By-Day Guide to the Beatles' Entire Career (Paperback)
What can I say - its author is a fan and an acknowledged authority, it has a foreword by George Martin. I love it, and often refer to it.
For Beatles fans or for people who weren't around at the time and have no idea what a group, particularly them, had to do, this is fascinating.
It shows the gruelling schedule, the speed at which albums had to be recorded, interviews given etc.
The world has changed, of course, so this is a history, but a great one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant day-by-day guide, 24 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Beatles Chronicle: The Definitive Day-By-Day Guide to the Beatles' Entire Career (Paperback)
Mark Lewisohn's previous Beatles book 'The Complete Recording Sessions' was an invaluable guide to the Fab Four's days in the studio with a lot of very fine detail and this chronicle is no different.

The research is thorough and the pictures make this a 'must-have' for any Beatles fan going through their entire career.

For those of us not fortunate to be around when Beatlemania took the entire world by storm this book provides at least a written & photographic record of what I can only imagine were wonderful times.

Stunning book which is well worth every penny!!!!

My students are doing a 60s project this semester, and they say it's a really useful tool for them.
I warmly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have, 27 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Beatles Chronicle: The Definitive Day-By-Day Guide to the Beatles' Entire Career (Paperback)
Mark Lewisohn is definitely the greatest Beatles expert known to this day in writing. This classic, together with his own "The Beatles Recording Sessions", out of print for many years now, are the best choices for anyone who'd like to know their story from scratch, or to find a comprehensible guide for those eight years that changed music as the world knew it -- forever. If you'd like to keep it on your coffee table, just keep the coffee away. It's too precious to run the risk of getting stained.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not only for the geeks, 12 Feb 2014
This review is from: The Complete Beatles Chronicle: The Definitive Day-By-Day Guide to the Beatles' Entire Career (Paperback)
An excellent book with a great flow to the writing. Hardcore fans will love the day by day calender-like account of the beatles history but even fans, such as myself, who don't need such depth will enjoy the summing up of every year of the Beatles history. The annual descriptions are in my opinion the best narrative of the Beatles legend I've read so far if you want a general overall picture of the band. Insightful, entertaining and humble - despite the fact that Lewisohn is generally considered the Beatles expert par excellence - also by George Martin.
