I'm still looking forward to this book coming out.

I got it for Christmas last year. It is an interesting read featuring cool moments from his songwriting process, however I found it slow and a little bit dry. The coolest part is the photos of the sheet music and the photos of his original lyrics.

This will be my first copy, so unfortunately not--but if I had an extra copy you would definitely be the recipient. apple01

Did you ever receive the book?

I bought a copy of I Me Mine about five or six years ago and I didn't mind it. The best part for me was his anecdotes about his songs.

I might have to get this expanded deluxe edition though.

Yes, I haven't had much time to spend with it, but I have enjoyed it so far. It is expanded to include handwritten lyrics up through Brainwashed, and has some material written by Olivia.

That sounds good. I will get myself a copy sooner or later.

Does anyone here have both the original and expanded editions of this book? I've got a paperback copy from 2002, but was wondering if it's worth getting the longer one.

I'm intending to write about all of George's songs and quotations from him or his family are useful to include, but the Extended Edition is quite expensive! If anyone could outline the difference I'd appreciate it (I'm not really interested in photos or the lyrics themselves, just the commentary).

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes
Or buy my paperback/ebook! Riding So High – The Beatles and Drugs

Don't miss The Bowie Bible – now live!

I have the extended edition, I actually found it extremely useful for a paper I wrote last semester on Bangladesh in 1971. I don’t have the standard version so I’m not totally sure what the difference is, but in my book rarely does a song commentary exceed a full page. As a musician I love the photos of the hand notation. Either way, I was thrilled to use I Me Mine as a primary source for a college essay.
