Fully updated to include George's near-fatal stabbing by a crazed fan, some 19 years after Lennon's death, and his recent battle with cancer, George Harrison remains the definitive study of this most reserved and genuine talent.

If there was a "zero" category, I would rate this book "zero". The book has very little to do with George Harrison. It primarily talks about every British band that ever cropped up before, during, and after the Beatles era.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The complex life of George Harrison provides the material for a fascinating read. Alan Clayson has apparently researched his subject quite thoroughly, beginning at Harrison's birth and continuing to within months of his death. Unofortunately for readers, Mr. Clayson's proofreaders failed to exercise the same diligence. I have never read a book with more errors, including misspelled words, awkward punctuations, and even some sentences that failed to begin with capital letters. Once I fought my way through the structural difficulties, I found 'George Harrison' to be a hugely informative presentation about the life of a man who zealously guarded his privacy. As a lifelong fan of the Beatles (dating back to 1964), I discovered a plethora of facts about one of music's genuine legends. If for no other reason than its historical significance, I would recommend that you endure the errors to reach the true purpose of the book: to celebrate the life of a man who was part of an act that continues to bring joy to the lives of millions of fans.Was this review helpful?
