I expected to receive multiple copies of Lewisohn's book for Christmas, but instead received this one.

It could not be more different.

Dr. Beatle has a full review on his web site (http://rnrchemist.blogspot.com.....?q=objects), but suffice it to say that despite the (inevitable?) errors, it's clever.

There are two potential Beatle audiences: those who already know a great deal and those who don't know much but would like some more info. The former will want to read Lewisohn's book.

How do you get information to the second group without simply becoming another history book (this happened, then that happened, then…)?

The author has chosen to select some rarely seen objects as stepping stones for little Beatle vignettes. The book is visually pleasing and has plenty of little nuggets for the Beatle fan.
