As soon as the Beatles became famous, the spin machines began to construct a myth - a myth that has continued into the present. The truth is far more interesting, far more exciting and far more moving. After years of international research, hundreds of unprecedented interviews and the mining of tens of thousands of previously unseen documents, Bob Spitz has written the definitive, epic, all-encompassing biography not just of John and Paul and their two mates from Liverpool, but of a band - a loud, angry rock 'n' roll band composed of four kids who became gods.

This is a very well researched and written biography of the most influential band of the last century.
Mr. Spitz must have spent an exhaustive amount of time talking too everyone who every knew any of the four men who we have come to know as the Beatles.
This is the definitive work on this band and explains a lot of what happened and explains why it occurred.
Well worth the read.

I picked this off my family's bookshelf and started reading it. I wanted to know a little bit more about the Beatles. Its an amazingly written book, but I just decided to put in back on the shelf because I find that its too depressing. I guess life just is sometimes.
