    Have not read yet

    I have not read this book yet, but I have read many books concerning the Beatles by such authors as Bob Spitz, Larry Kane, Cynthia Lennon. I can say the most entertaining and informative book on the the 'boys from Liverpool' that I have read is Allan William's book 'The Man Who Gave the Beatles Away' I Highly Recommend it.

    An enjoyable trip through the lives of the soon to be Beatles

    Before they were Beatles is a wonderful exploration of the early (Primarily Teen) years of the Fab Four and those that encountered them. Mr. Porter's dedication to gathering accurate facts is obvious throughout the book. Rather being a boring 'History' book however, the reader is drawn into the lives of the young men as they strive to hone their craft. Interspersed Quotes allow the reader to 'Be There' as it's happening. The 'Where are they now' section is particularly enjoyable. This is ultimately a must have for any Beatles fan or student of music and popular culture.
