How Not to Write a Beatles Book
« on: October 31, 2011, 04:12:52 AM »



I picked up this little book when I was shopping the other night because it has lots of good pictures in it. Unfortunately it also is full of errors. I didn't really expect to learn much that was new but I also didn't expect to find so many typos, factual blunders and mispellings. I am considering sending off an e-mail to the publisher when I am done reading it because it irks me to see such a poor product on the market.

I like the cover too,but this is a good example of how you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.I think it's very careless that there's a lot of typos,the factual errors aren't a good thing either but that's not really too bad because that happens in a lot in books.I support you on considering to send an e-mail to the publisher,I was trying to look the book up online but I couldn't find it so I do know if it was cheap or not but it doesn't deserve its moneys worth.

I had a hard time finding it online but I finally did. The cover price is $19.95 but I only paid $6.99 because I got it a wholesale club. It is a pretty cool cover...at least! :)

Did you get it at Costco or Sam's Club?

BJ's Wholesale Club. There were a bunch of other books of the same size on different subjects from this publisher so I'm thinking this got churned out in a hurry.

I just hope that all of the other books by this publisher are accurate.
