Is the Fab Four FAQ book good?
I haven't been able to delve too deeply in this book yet, but so far it seems good. Here are my impressions:
On one hand, some of the book's contents may be too basic for hardcore Beatles fans. (For instance, it lists some "Paul is dead" clues and tells readers about "Yesterday"'s silly "scrambled egg" lyrics--things that any serious fan would already know.)
On the other hand, it also provides tidbits on more obscure Beatles facts, like brief information on the Beatles' opening acts (like Chris Montez), where Brian Epstein's home was (24 Chapel Street in Belgravia), and what all the Beatle children have been doing in their own lives. (Well, almost all of the Beatles' kids. They left out Heather, Paul's stepdaughter, possibly because she's not directly related to him. Since he adopted and raised her, however, I don't think that's fair.)
If you enjoy reading about random Beatles trivia, then you may like this book. Overall, it looks like a fun crash course through Beatles history and I can see its appeal for both buffs and beginners. I know a lot about the Beatles, but this book showed me that there's still more to learn.
