Challenging popular myths attributed to the Beatles, an extensively researched band portrait traces their individual experiences of rising from young, angry rock-and-roll musicians to fame, in an account that endeavors to provide balanced coverage of all four members. 300,000 first printing.

Spitz restores the Beatles to what they were: a loud, angry rock and roll band, kids that became gods, not gods who happened to look like kids. This is a biography of the band in full, not merely the story of John and Paul and their two mates from Liverpool.

This is a very well researched and written biography of the most influential band of the last century.
Mr. Spitz must have spent an exhaustive amount of time talking too everyone who every knew any of the four men who we have come to know as the Beatles.
This is the definitive work on this band and explains a lot of what happened and explains why it occurred.
Well worth the read.

I picked this off my family's bookshelf and started reading it. I wanted to know a little bit more about the Beatles. Its an amazingly written book, but I just decided to put in back on the shelf because I find that its too depressing. I guess life just is sometimes.
