I'm kinda having doubts about how well this book is written though.

Beatles For Sale on Parlophone Records by Bruce Spizer and Frank Daniels
The Complete Beatles Chronicle (the Only Definitive Guide to the Beatles' Entire Career by Mark Lewisohn

Both are excellent, detailed, well researched and written books.

Absolutely   ;yes

I recently bought it and I think it's very well-made; nice pictures, layout etc. First, I was reluctant too, but now I'm glad to have it  :D

Yes, some great photos of John and Beatles-related items in there that you will not see elsewhere. It is especially good if you were lucky enough to visit the exhibition a couple of years back at Liverpool Pier Head, where all the items in the book were displayed.
I thought it was sad that Julian had so little to remember his father by that he ended up going to auction houses and buying items that had once belonged to John.

The Beatles Are Coming: The Birth of Beatlemania in America by Bruce Spizer.

Fun reading about the how the whole Ed Sullivan Show thing happened, as that was my first Beatles memory.

I´am reading Here, There, and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of The Beatles by Geoff Emerick. It´s a real eye opener, I must say - although, I´ve read that some parts in the book are not entirely true.

He isn't particularly nice about either of the Georges - Harrison or Martin - and doesn't have much to say at all about Ringo.
It's quite a pro-Paul book.
There are some surprising omissions - for example, reading about the recording of the first version of Across The Universe, I was surprised that there was no mention of the two Apple Scruffs that were invited in to do backing vocals.

Its not Beatle related but just read one of the funniest auto biogs: Guy Pratt's, 'My bass and other animals'.

He's a session muso who played with the Pink floyd tour in the late 80's/90s. Alos played with Aussie band Icehouse and has done songs for Madonna, Jackson. Toured with Ferry too.

Very funny guy and some great stories of life on the road.

I'll say it was pro-Paul. I found myself wondering throughout this if he had even met John. Maybe that's why Howard Sounes
felt a need to trounce Paul in his book.You know, kind of balance the scales.  ;D I still found some things to enjoy in Emerick's book though.

Not really Beatles, but I'm currently reading Rory Storms biography. Very interesting.

i am not reading nothing right now, but i attempted to start reading Geoff Emerick: Here, There and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of The Beatles, because i peeked through a couple of chapter endings, including the part about john performing i am the walrus the first time and what george said. interesting no doubt, i fully intend to read it cover to cover this summer, after i finish off a ray bradbury short story collection.

I'm reading "Who killed John Lennon" by Fenton S. Bresler. Though stuff really, but also very interesting.
