That's a good list and a few I hadn't heard of. Thanks

Yes and no. I think there are too many books in the list.

For example, someone bought me the Lennon Letters by Hunter Davies and I found it to be of very little interest. Certainly less interesting than Ringo's book Postcards From the Boys.

Then again I wouldn't put either of them in my top twenty.

I read Conversations With McCartney by Paul Du Noyer last week. Saw it at the library. Initially thought I'd just skim through but it was a damn good book of interviews ranging from 1989 to the present.

Whilst the Beatles era was nothing new and covered in other McCartney books, I did learn a few new things which is remarkable as I've basically read everything worth reading in the Beatle universe. For instance, Paul was approached by a well known film director to star in the 1968 Romeo and Juliet with Olivia Hussey lol!

I saw this list of "Best" Beatle books which is a very good summary. I have to agree with the majority. I would add "Tune In" though.

Tune In is No 1 for me

I really dont see how you could put some of them above it

I love well-documented books like Tune In (or anything else by Mark Lewisohn).
Eric Krasker's Fact & Fiction 1960-1962 is another well-documented and written book that deals with a lot of (fairy)tales about The Beatles.
The books by Bruce Spizer are top. A very detailed (and expensive) book about recording and recording techniques is the book by Brian Kehew.
The Anthology book is a good read of course.
The Unreleased Beatles by Richie Unterberger.
I like to browse in the photobooks by Mike McCartney.
