OK, so the premise is really quite fluffy, but has anyone here read the book just on a whim to see what they get? It's a personality typing book, sort of (but not really) like the Myers-Briggs Personality test. I've taken a partial quiz (through the preview on Amazon) and so far it looks like I am a George with a minor Ringo (ha ha) but I'm dying to get my hands on it for the chapter where they talk about...something to do with the "Yokos" in your life.

I hear that the research done for the book is not consistent, so it's definitely not a book for someone wanting to *learn* more about them, but rather for people who can say their story in their sleep and have $15 to burn for curiosity's sake.

I have a couple friends that have read the book and they say it's an absolute riot. So I asked for it for my birthday which is Friday just out of curiosity. It looks really funny and like it would be a fun read.

Oh, please, please, PLEASE report back when you've finished reading it! a-hard-days-night-george-9

I'm surprised there never was a "What your Favorite Beatle Says About You" kind of book, complete with data analysis. There's everything else out there.
