I really haven’t read a Beatles book in awhile, since I find most of it has been repeated several times over now, but what I like reading the most is a little known BeatlesBible.com!
Just when I thought I knew it all, I read great stories from @Joe, @meanmistermustard & @Ron Nasty. They have taught me many a good thing, I didn’t know!
Cheers to you 3 and many others on this site, great reading material!

Ah, that’s good to hear. I know what you mean about book fatigue – I rarely buy any new ones nowadays because it feels like the well’s run dry. Or if not dry, then perhaps just a few pages’ worth in a whole book. And the photo books! So many photo books.
I wonder what All These Years is going to do to Beatles book publishing. All the major stories are going to be told, all the interviewees interviewed, the stories told. My guess is there’ll be a handful of new memoirs, some very niche books about specific topics (eg recording methods, fashions, Apple), but the days of broad Beatles biogs are over.

^ I like seeing you digging up the obscure posts DL, reminds me how many actual bloody threads there are in the place.
And to answer your question ‘eva’ is slang for ‘ever’.

This one could make for some interesting discussion. My favourite Beatles related book is probably the original Hunter Davies biography, but I haven’t read a great deal of them. I’d be interested to know if there’s a good biography out there that goes into detail on the music itself, since my major complaint with the Davies one was that he skips over the release of several of the albums, when I’d really like to have heard more about the creative process behind them and the reception they received.

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

I’ll here the list with the best book I have ever read about Beatles:
1.‘The Beatles, Lennon and Me,’ by Pete Shotton
2.‘The Man Who Gave the Beatles Away,’ by Allan Williams
3.‘Lennon Remembers,’ by Jann S. Wenner
4.‘The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions,’ by Mark Lewisohn
5.‘The Love You Make: An Insider’s Story of the Beatles,’ by Peter Brown and Steven Gaines
In case you are a big fan of Beatles you’ll enjoy them all, trust me!
