The 2004 remake of this once small guide is a completely new and improved effort which actually combines John Robertson's (aka Peter Doggett) original with Patrick Humphries' guide to the Beatles' Anthology in the same series. As a bonus, the title page also credits Beatles' experts Keith Badman and Andy Neill, who evidently added or edited bits, along with Chris Charlesworth. So it's quite a team for such a compact book. Although some will find the reviews a little too brief, it serves its function as a compact guide and, crucially, at £4.95 it's a snip and not much more than the price of a glossy magazine. The production is pretty rudimentary, but what do you expect at that price! It's the handiness of the tome that is important and although I could have done with more detail and analysis what is here is very solid and informative. Plus, the team involved are all highly respected. With books like this you often find it's written by a journalist without much experience or interest in the field and is prone to silly errors. The opposite's the case here. Highly recommended for fans who want a quick reference guide that they can believe in!
