I finally received my hard copy of the book from the publisher, and it's gorgeous. I've posted some pictures of the book to give you an idea of what it's like.

Is this book a massive upgrade on the Howlett's last book? What i mean is is it just loads of new pics, facsimiles, and transcripts of interviews we already have or does it contain new previously unknown information. Normally i wouldn't ask but the amazon have it going for £27.90 and with everything else coming out it may be one to put on the 'later for cheaper' pile.

I would say it is an upgrade, with new material.

 

Here's my updated review of the BBC book with photographs from within the book (supplied by the publisher) as well as photos of my copy.

Thanks good Dr. I'll have a read of your review after my tea.

Received my copy in the mail.  It looks very nice.

"Remember, we are writing in the sky instead of on paper--that's our song. Lift your eyes and look up in the sky. There's our message. Lift your eyes again and look around you, and you will see that you are walking in the sky, which extends to the ground. We are all part of the sky, more so than of the ground. Remember, we love you." --John Lennon and Yoko Ono

Finally got around to DrBeatle's review and sadly i have to say i want this damn book now. Sounds far better than i thought it would, but it will have to wait.

In regards to the positive interviews John and George gave about the Beatles future in '69, would that be because Klein was renegotiating better royalties for the Beatles albums, i forget the timeline and if Abbey Road was before or after Klein's successful discussions.
