It covers everything in extraordinary detail - maybe TOO much detail sometimes.
You've got the story - interviews with the people who were there (Tony Sheridan, Burt Kaempfurt...) - the album covers - a price guide...
He even talks about releases made around the world.
He clears up a lot of the mysteries as well - for example, who played on the Sweet Georgia Brown song.
A great book.
Hans Olof Gottfridsson is one such person to delve into the murky waters of those sessions and has come up with an exhausting but incredibly informative book on the Beatles' early career. Billed as a chronicle, discography and price guide, it's the first of these that is more interesting, as very little recorded material before October 1962 has been officially released and any price guide is not only subjective but also out of date the day it's published. (The discography section includes recordings known to have been made but which remain unissued, legal or otherwise, alongside superfluous releases from Sheridan and a couple of other people.) What isn't open to speculation is that the eight Polydor recordings have probably been issued more times than any other songs by anyone.
Translated from, I'm assuming, Swedish, some of the early text in this heavyweight book is familiar ground for Beatle aficionados but included within that often encountered narrative are interviews with those who played a part; Carole Higgins (Percy Phillips' daughter), the other Quarrymen, Roy Young, Johnny 'Guitar' Byrne, and a few others.Read more ›

On the other, it needs a professional editing, particularly as concerns word-breaks. And the vertical half-page of text, half-page blank, makes reading difficult. Open the text up -- use the full page. And enlarge the font a point or two.
I would still not want to omit this from my Music/Beatles library.
