Overview

Eight Days a Week is the inside account of The Beatles' final world tour, through the lens and words of their official photographer, Robert Whitaker.
 
This lavish book, containing many preciously unpublished photographs, documents the tempestuous journey that began in Germany and included a visit to Hamburg, scene thereof the group's legendary early performances. After playing their last-ever European concert there, The Beatles made an unscheduled stop-over in Alaska before arriving in Japan, where they were confined to ther hotel between shows for their own security. Their final destination, Manila in the Philippines, turned into a nightmare after unintentional offense was given to Imelda Marcos, wife of the country's dictator.
 
Whitaker's intimate view of John, Paul, George and Ringo highlights their characteristic humor, even under the strain of touring, and documents the more serious inner world of The Beatles at a turning point in their career.

    Another Beatles book but from a reliable source

    I feel that I have 90% of the decent Beatles books in print but this perspective from an insider with a camera, no less, makes for great entertainment and sheds light on a few new facts. The photographic content, as should be expected, is terrific and is a must for one who grew up with the Beatles - or any fan for that matter. Unpublished photos alone are worth the price. Great job Bob - and thanks.
