'I, ME, MINE' is a tasteful, expanded reprint of the closest thing to a George Harrison autobiography.' TIME OUT (4 11 Dec).
The DAILY EXPRESS has also given the book a mention.
'If sales of THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY are anything to go by, public demand for new Beatles product is as strong as ever. While, I, ME, MINE is not strictly speaking a new book, such is its rarity, except at Beatles memorabilia fairs (at vastly inflated prices) that its 400 pages and 200 illustrations will be treated asa newly discovered treasure trove of insider detail about the biggest band in pop history.'

Dedicated to "Gardeners Everywhere" this book is George Harrison at peace with the world.
This work provides readers with a "glimpse" of George growing up; the former Beatle describes his working class roots in Liverpool, his musical muse and later, his work as a gifted composer, guitarist and lyricist. Indeed, George Harrison has expanded musical horizons; in 1965 he became enamored of the sitar and included it on several songs on "Rubber Soul" and later collections.
His lifelong quest for spiritual knowledge and core belief system are explored; indeed, it is in his own words he explains that he does not follow an "organized" or "traditional" religion, but rather bases his spiritual feelings around his internal beliefs.
I like the input the artist's wife Olivia offered; her words are a welcome and added treat to this work. Indeed, it is Olivia's contribution that make the reissue of this work even better and more effective in touching readers.
The first half of the book is narrative biography - but it is a little on the short side (only around 75 pages I think) and doesn't have a lot of the sort of information and stories you might expect. The second half of the book (and this is why I have to give it 5 stars) is all of George's songs, lyrics and explanations as to what they were about or inspired by - and that is really George's story.
I'm not sure why George would choose to write a biography at the time he did. I wish he could have done an updated version before he died. That would have been fascinating reading!
If you're looking for a book about The Beatles or about Beatle George, this isn't it, but if you're looking for a book about George Harrison the man, then as the title suggests, you've found it.
