I picked up this book at a used record store today, and then I happened to read a review that talked about how horrible it is because the interviews are riddled with transcription errors, with quotes attributed to the wrong Beatles. Has anyone read this, and can anyone confirm that this book is in fact useless?

I have the book, never really looked at it as every time i hear anything about Giuliano its negative and i have other interview books. Interesting to see what anyone here has to say after reading about the errors its said to have in an amazon review.

I've started reading this and the interviews are hilarious.

Here are some excerpts:

George: Remember that house we stayed in at Harlech?
Paul: No. Which one?
George: Yes, you do! There was a woman who had a dog with no legs. She used to take it out in the morning for a slide.
Interviewer: Who in the world would the Beatles like to meet more than anyone else?
Ringo: Santa Claus.
Interviewer: Paul, you look like my son.
Paul: You don't look a bit like my mother.
Interviewer: Why aren't you wearing hat?
George: Why aren't you wearing a tie?
