Hope so - really enjoyed the book and big inspiration for ITSWD. (I was coincidentally interviewed by S. Gaines many years ago. I would have liked to interview him!)

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)
5 December 2019
I just read this book last month and I didn't really like it that much. I don't know if it was the tone that Brown used in the writing or what but it just read like an impersonal, gossipy tabloid. I know that the Beatles' personal lives were far from perfect, but the whole thing is just so....harsh. It seemed interesting when I first picked it up, but upon reading it I was immediately turned off, especially at the parts where he (or the guy who helped him write it) said: "Seen here for the first time." It just felt a little too cold for a Beatles book. And it turns out there are tons and tons of unproven facts and just straight inaccuracies! When I read it, I was appalled by the things that Brown (or the guy who helped write it) managed to get incorrect. I don't have the book on me now, but I'll dig up examples when I'm home-- I annotated a lot.
