This book is intended as the first of three volumes. The subsequent volumes aim to cover the history of the Beatles throughout the remainder of the 1960's (and into the 1970's). I suspect that, once completed, this body of work will represent the most sweeping and complete study ever undertaken on the Beatles. It's clear that the author possesses expert knowledge on the subject-matter. And, thankfully, he's able to present the history of the band in a fascinating, enjoyable and entertaining manner. While this book certainly constitutes a scholarly contribution (and will be of interest to students of musicology and rock history), it's nonetheless fully accessible to the 'layperson'.
Most of the book is concerned with the early lives of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, dealing with the development of their relationship and how the band emerged and made progress. The other Beatles - George Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe, Pete Best and Ringo Starr - are provided with amble space, but not quite as much as either Lennon or McCartney. Additionally, there's plenty of material on George Martin and Brian Epstein.
As a fan of the Beatles, I was already familiar with much of their history. However, this exceptional book offers a treasure of information - much of which was new to me. I'm glad I read this book, and I highly recommend it to other fans. As it is, I'm left eagerly awaiting Volume 2.
I just can't leave this book down; as an avid Beatles fan, this is simply the 'best biography' I've read. It is a very detailed and easy read and I highly recommend it. The book arrived promptly and in first class condition. A very satisfied customer.
Renders a good portion of my Beatles library obsolete.
Well worth buying. Cheap at twice the price!
