I tend to recommend Can't Buy Me Love by Jonathan Gould, a very good all-round biog, perhaps the best at this stage. For first-person reportage from the early tours try Love Me Do by Michael Braun. For the US tours Larry Kane's Ticket To Ride is a good fly-on-the-wall which discusses the public personae vs behind-the-scenes existence on tour. But if the press is your main focus you should probably get Tony Barrow's John, Paul George, Ringo And Me (he was their press officer in the early days).

HTH. Thanks for asking in the forum rather than mailing me directly, btw.

Hey Joe, thank you for your answer. Can't Buy Me Love seems like quite a big work, it's a shame I'm not doing this is 2014 - more time for the research and the chance to read Lewisohn's upcoming book as well.

Also, thanks for mentioning the authors, since there are so many books with the same title. I found it a bit weird that so many titles are out of print, and that most of them don't have an ebook edition, but I suppose the market is so full of books about the Beatles that many copyright holders decided new editions wouldn't be profitable.
