For anyone who has the latest edition, I found it best to start the book by reading the original text first, then the 1985 updates that appear at the end, then the newest updates that appear at the beginning.
Sounds confusing, but it flows better.
To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

I was just reading my copy today and I was reading through the chapter about George and he says that George was born in 1943, then on the naxt page it says 1944. It's on page 117, about 4th paragraph down. Now I'm questioning my Beatle knowladge to weather George was born in that year of it it's just a typo. Either way, I'm hoping it's just a minor error.

Its a typo. George was born in 1943. It was also erroneously printed a long time ago that George was born on the 24th February when its the 25th. And then there is the date that Paul and John met, a whole host of wrong dates for that have appeared in various books, magazines etc.
There are errors in every book you read. Some serious, some, like this, less than minor.

Hi! And I know you have enough time you do not speak of this book. I read it a while ago too. It’s a good book, despite misinformation (Bob Spitz demystifies some things in his book). But let me ask you: at the end of the book, Davies asks some questions like, “How are the Beatles now,” I felt myself anticipating the future, because I already knew what would happen. You also had this impression? How about we invent what could happen, following the thought of Hunter?
Nobody told me there'd be days like these!!

Hello, pretty new to the forum and reviving this thread in order to ask something about this book.
I thought of getting the 2010 edition that is available on Amazon. Nonetheless, I read a review saying that the 2006 illustrated edition is more enjoyable for reading (bigger font, images through the text).
Does anybody know if there are substantial changes between those two versions? I attach the pictures for better reference:

I have the 40th Anniversary edition of the book. I liked how he updated the introduction to include George’s death, the end of Paul’s marriage to Heather and a Memento Mori for the people who had died since 2009.
