Despite the American spelling, which was an irritation, and the spelling mistakes, which abound, this book, about the Beatles' very early period, beginning in 1956, was a welcome addition to the list of books I have read about the band. I would echo the comments of another reviewer who commented positively about the hitherto unreported facts discovered by the author and included here.
Very interesting book, felt I was reading great truth of the best group in the world. Hearing from school friends who were part of the beginning that are able to give true reflection of how it was in the good old days were it began.
I have quite a collection of books about The Beatles and thought there wasn't much I hadn't read before but this book is full of new facts and in addition is an excellent history lesson in 1950's skiffle music which led to the music we've all lived with since. This is where it started. Beatles fan or just music fan, read it.
