If you want to browse the book before committing to buy it, use DPL's interlibrary loan service.

It looks like their Illiad system is down at the moment (ours was down last week too - the company did something funky with some setting and knocked their customers for a loop). But, the link gives you other ways to contact them.

The ILL staff will be impressed (they should be) if you give them this number : the OCLC accession number is 9645065.

That OCLC number works for both the hardback and paperback copies of the book.

The hardback ISBN is 9780446379175.

The paperback ISBN is 9780446379168.

On a side note, the head position for DPL ILL was open when I graduated from library school. But, it required 5 years of professional work in ILL. I only had a one semester practicum under my belt at that time.

If you do borrow a copy, remember to come back here and post a thought or two about the book. Your musings on all things John are so unique and interesting.

Thanks. Learning about John challenges and enlightens me, and helps me to see certain aspects of myself, good and bad. a-hard-days-night-john-6

I had no idea it was selling for so much second-hand. I bought a paperback copy in fairly good condition a couple of years ago but I probably paid no more than £5/$8 for it.

Oddly, I just did a Google search for [may pang loving john pdf] and stumbled upon this, which is a pdf of the interview I did with May in 2011, with Beatles Bible logo, comments and everything. Very strange to see it like that. I assume someone converted it for their own use, and they leave everything up on the site.

The pdf only grabbed page one of the interview. This is from page two:

Your book Loving John has been long out of print. I heard you’re working on a revised edition. Can you say any more about that?

I had a lot of issues with that book. My intention was to write a balanced and accurate account of our time together. The publisher edited the book almost in half, keeping the more controversial stories while disregarding the good, productive side. They didn’t think it would sell. Obviously, I wasn’t going to white-wash the story and I didn’t. But I’d like to restore some of the context. There was plenty of good.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

That's very interesting. I'll keep in mind when I read the book that much of the positive context has been removed.
