This thread at Reddit on autumn Beatle releases mentions a Paul bio that hasn't been mentioned here:

Anyone realised what a great Beatle book feast we're going to have this autumn? Mark Lewishon's huge 960 page (part one!) history of the band on Oct 10th. Kevin Howlett's BBC archives book (with much rumoured BBC live vol 2 CD to coincide) also on Oct 10th. Prior to this its Mat Snow's Beatles Solo Chronicles on Oct 2nd, and next week it's Tom Doyles's McCartney - Man on the run due for release. Bang goes the mortgage repayments...!

And one of the comments:

Also being released this fall is She Loves You by Jude Southerland Kessler. This is the third book in her John Lennon series. Her research is impeccable.

There was a rumor last fall that Yoko was publishing a book. I thought it was supposed to be published around his birthday last October. It never happened (that I know of). Is that still in the works or was that something someone just dreamed up to taunt us?

Via maccaboard, an interview with Tom Doyle about Man on the Run.

Someone emailed him and found it won't be coming to the US until June of next year.

^yeah, we were all lamenting that. It's a bit silly...I'd preordered it months ago and it disappeared. My feeling is that we'll all order it from Amazon UK rather than wait a full year!

Behind That Locked Door looks to be one to read tho when is a question with the tome that is Tune In coming in November.

Every time I read about this event,

Two years later, when Dr Gilbert Lederman, a director of radiation oncology, all but forces a pitifully weak Harrison to autograph a guitar for his son just weeks before the Beatle’s death, the imposition seems almost as gross as the attack at Friar Park.

I feel sickened at suck a lack of professionalism, decency and respect. I hope he was promptly fired.

 

Edit: This article has information on what happened after George's death (first two pages involve George):

The exceedingly private Harrison family, however, wasn’t interested in allowing the former Beatle to become Lederman’s pitchman from the great beyond. To stop the doctor from talking about her dead husband, Olivia Harrison filed a complaint with the State Board of Professional Medical Conduct, which fined and censured Lederman for revealing too much about his  patient. To prevent the autographed guitar from potentially ending up on eBay, she slapped him with a $10 million lawsuit. (As part of the settlement, Lederman relinquished the guitar and agreed not to speak further about Harrison or the case.) The same week the case was filed, SIUH announced that Lederman would be replaced as director of radiation oncology.

According to a doctor at the hospital, Lederman blamed this unfortunate series of events on the fact that Olivia Harrison was “a little jealous that [George’s] attention was being devoted more to Gil than to her.”

And here are more details of the settlement.

^^UGH. I'd read about the autographed-guitar incident, but not that second part you put in the edit. That doctor sounds like a REAL piece of work. Olivia was pissed because she was "jealous" of George's relationship with his doctor? Seriously? That is the height of ridiculousness. And narcissism. Makes me ill to think about how many other patients/family members he was a bastard to, that we'll never hear about because they weren't famous.

I hadn't read that last part before either. "Piece of work" is a kind description. Yes, Olivia was jealous that a doctor is attending to her dying husband. As if she didn't have enough trauma to deal with.

Read that quickly and I thought you had written "you can buy different editions of the book at the site". Been at the New Macca Album thread.

Haha! Yeah, between that and the Lewisohn book, it wouldn't be surprising.
