This book is a real page turner (or button presser I suppose we Kindle folk should say). I laid in bed reading it for several nights long after I would normally be fast asleep and in the land of Nod. That said, this is a book for Beatle fans first and foremost. Although it is exceptionally well written and could hold an interest for those not well versed on Beatle affairs such people would not perhaps get the full benefit of it.
If you are have an interest in the Beatles and want to know more about their break up and the tangled mess that was their monetary situation then this is the book for you. If you are an accountant or lawyer then you will enjoy it even more. Yet if you are none of those things, not even a Beatle fan, then this book is still a fascinating read and well worth the paying for.
Well written and insightful, I'm not sure about Doggett's sources, but he appeared to me to be both credible, objective, and unbiased. It was a riveting read, and helped me understand things even better than before, particularly the early seventies and immediate post break up time.
It seems even more plausible that the fabs would have reformed at some point, according to Doggett, but Yoko got in the way initially, and then later of course, it was never to be, after Lennon's untimely death.
Highly recommended, the best Beatles book since Revolution in the Head. I'd callthis is the first '21st Century Beatles book', as it seems to have been able to mop up so much of the last 20 years too into a cohesive sweep, and retell this wonderful, captivating story from a new perspective - quite an achievement.
Read this in conjunction with Lewisohn's 'The Complete Beatles Chronicle' and you'll have a much better view of what went on behind the media smokescreen of the time which only hinted, often untruthfully, at the stories surrounding the biggest sensation to hit pop music in the '60s.
This book is a great read. The Kindle edition makes it difficult to follow the footnotes as these are split into both chapter notes and actual footnotes which are, unfortunately, lumped together at the end of each chapter. As such the footnote references are difficult to match up with the text which is why I've deducted a star. However this doesn't spoil the flow of the narrative, which is the main thrust of Doggett's book, and I enjoyed it immensely.
