(note: 23 March 2014, Ahhh Girl merged the three threads on this book. The second thread began with post #15. The third thread began with post #39.)

 

I've mentioned this before but I've now got this book and it is without question the best book ever written about the Beatles / Liverpool. You can read about it here: http://www.liddypool.com/

I actually got my copy from Amazon.co.uk and it was £13 cheaper (at £22 Laugh). It's a big book (about LP size and around 1 1/2 inches thick)  full of great photos and packed full of remarkable facts and figures.

I've been to Liverpool many times so maybe find it easier to relate to certain things, but if you want the definitive book on where the Beatles come from with all the places named and researched, then this is the one.

Oh and I'm not on any commision here (I have never heard of the author before) - just wanted to share my thoughts Cool

I got mine in the mail today, and it sure is purdy! I haven't had much time to really dig into it, but the layout looks sharp. I did read the part about why Pete Best was dropped and it seems like the most reasonable explanation I've read: money split three ways > money split four ways.

What are  your thoughts, mjb?


Because I got the Everett books at the same time I'm reading those first.  I'm onto volume 2 now so hopefully I'll start on the Liddypool book within the next week or so. Of course I've looked at the pictures (as one does!) and I am very impressed with the look of it all.
