    Cool info even wikipedia doesn't have

    This book (as an extension of Fab Four Faq) is an excellent resource for trivia that all Beatles fans and/or John, Paul, George or Ringo fans will find entertaining and fun! I disagree with the previous review in that it's not really random and the info in this book isn't as easy to access as simply going to wikipedia (and even if it was...it would be laboriously disjointed to endeavor such a task). I also disagree with the previous reviewer on the chronology of the chapter layout. Primarily: The main intent of the book isn't as a mere and simple chronology but as a presentation of Post-Beatles Beatles facts and minutia. And, in fact, the author does maintain chapters (actually in order) of year by year highlights. But the book also has numerous chapters that don't fall into a natural order when sequencing the chapters. For instance: The chapter titled "And when the Cupboard's bare". It's a chapter on poorly charting singles that has information that spans from 1970 to 1980. Where, chronologically, should that chapter be placed? Since there is probably no logical place to insert this chapter (and quite a few of the chapters take a broad brushstroke approach to post Beatles history) the author inserts these interesting chapters throughout the entire book. It keeps the pacing of the book quick, in my opinion. It's a fun read. Bravo!!

    I could've written this

    If you printed out everything on the beatles from wikipedia, threw the pages in the air and put them back together randomly, you would have this book. It jumps all over the place with chapters going through each year of the 70's interrupted by completely randomn chapters on other Beatle trivia. Because of that, the author repeats A LOT of his points. If he didn't repreat things he wrote in a previous chapter, this book would have been 2/3rds shorter. Plus the book could have used more on the ALBUMS and less bio on session players. He also loves the word "meme".
