It sounds very much like a book called "The Beatles in their own words" by Paul's old friend Miles. It was published around 1976 I think.

Glass Onion, the book you posted the link for, is co-written by Geoffrey Giuliano who tends not to be regarded too highly in the Beatle book world.

Bought the book at the bookstore today for some airplane read for the grueling 17-hour filght. So far I don't think it's that bad.

Basically a bunch of interviews, letters, FBi memos(haha), and commentaries from their inner circle.

If you want I'll try to finish the book as soon as I can and tell you how I feel about it.

I wouldn't say it's worth it.

It seems like he just went through his pile of Beatles interviews, press conferences, and pictures, and randomly picked what to include. There is nothing really new you learn, lacks a real theme a talks little about their actual music (albums, songs), and most of the information is trivial and unimportant.
