i wouldn't worry about that, though
in her last book, she made some errors
but this time, she was more careful with what she wrote up
i wouldn't worry about it :)

Excuse me? This is about her latest book and if you were a truely Beatles fan, you WOULD worry about it. There's notable errors in there and it DOES matter.

yeah, Bobber is right. I've read further into the book now and I'm a little dissapointed. Some of the stuff is totally crazy wrong. I don't get why she got some of the most obvious Beatle related facts wrong. I was like what did she just say?? It's kind of weird. I'm going to finish it, but now that's I've gotten farther it's become kind of sketchy at times.  ???

About Cynthia's book... There are Beatle errors, but I would recommend reading it to get her take on John as a person (a friend/husband/father). I wouldn't really use it as a history book on the Beatles.

I asked for that book as a Christmas gift since I always browse through it at bookstores anyway. I might as well own it! ;)

Yeah Penny! I agree with you on that, I do like seeing their relationship in a different way. So I've just tried to ignore the Beatles errors! But I've liked learning about them as a couple.  :)

I started the Hunter Davies book today (weather forcing me to bus it all week as the car is immovable!)

Making quick progress, really easy to read and the lengthy introduction was quite a nice insight. Enjoying it so far  ;)

I'm currently reading the Anthology book which is fabulous, I'm careful when I buy books about bands or any kind of artist because there really are alot of mistakes...I once bought a book that was absolute rubbish! It was obvious that the author hadn't done his research as is shown when he said John called Ringo to ask him to join the band when it was Brian who called him...or the fact that NONE of the answers they gave when they first came to America and had their press conference were right... oh well enough of my ranting  ;sorry

I bought 2 e-books:
The Beatles: Off The Record - Keith Badman 
&
The Love You Make - Peter Brown

OTR is a good read. All quotes from the Beatles press confs and what not.

TLYM started off kind of dull, with the same boring bio stuff of the Beatles that you've read a million times, but it turns out to be a very good read once you get into it.
