I haven't read a Beatle book in what seems like a year, and  I wouldn't be surprised if it actually was.

I'm reading The Gospel According to The Beatles. I just started, but it seems like it's going to be a good book!

I'm reading 'The Beatles' by Hunter Daives, and I just finished 'In His Own Write' By Johnny! Pretty far out!  ;)

Ya, "In His Own Write" was pretty...trippy! I always wanted to read "Spaniar in the Works", but I can't find it anywhere :(

Our libraries have this thing where you can order books from different locations. I'm sure I could find it, but you might be able to get it off the internet. I also read Blackbird Singing by Paulie! That was good.

well, i found this one book called "Which Beatle are you?"
which is basically a bunch of descriptions and a quiz
in the beginning, there a adjectives describing each beatles, bad and good
but with george, most of them had to do with shyness, and i don't really think he's thatshy
i mean, if he were, he would've been kicked out like pete best

ones that i have:

"john" by cynthia lennon - i loved it! so much detail and emotion, i'm glad she never held a grudge
"wonderful tonight" by pattie boyd - it was interesting, i liked how she described the 60's, and George X)
"here, there, and everywhere: 100 best beatles songs"- well, the facts about each song are interesting, but they haven't got a clue to what the songs are about, the authors just assume
"lennon revealed" by larry kane - i haven't read the whole thing

Way Beyond Compare is similar to Mark Lewisohn's Recording Sessions/Beatles Chronicle book, only more so.

A LOT of details - You can use it for quick reference, or read it cover to cover.


what's this book like?

It's pretty good so far, I'm only halfway through it yet. I enjoy the way Larry Kane writes so I think I will read Ticket To Ride as well

(i looked at it in a bookstore but haven't read it)




The reviews of this book are not exactly glowing. Pauline seems to hold a grudge against the Beatles for some reason. Her conclusions on  John and Stu's relationship seem to be based on rumours and she even contradicts herself on things she previously said. For example in the past she had discredited the rumour that John was responsible for Stu's death, but in her book she practically accuses him of murder. She also says that John and Stu had a sexual relationship, although she has no data to back that up, she just "knows". She also claims John and Stu wrote songs together, that Stu was a great bass player etc. etc.

Here's a link to an interview
http://www.classicbands.com/PaulineSutcliffeInterview.html

At some point, I think she revealed the lyrics of some of the songs John and Stu allegedly wrote together. I'll try to find the link to that if you are interested. They were embarrassingly bad.
