Overview

Imagine you're the world's biggest Beatles fan and you've just snuck into John Lennon's hotel room. But instead of being thrown out, inexplicably you're invited to spend the day with your idol. That's exactly what happened to fourteen-year-old Jerry Levitan in 1969. After hearing John was in Toronto for a "bed in," Jerry tracked him down at the King Edward Hotel and convinced the world's biggest rock star to sit down for an exclusive forty-minute interview. John talked candidly about war, politics, the scandalous Two Virgins album, and the supposed subliminal messages in his music.

Now, forty years later, it's all here: Jerry's once-in-a-lifetime adventure, illustrated by acclaimed artist James Braithwaite and featuring never before seen photographs of John and Yoko. Also included in the book is Jerry's memorabilia from that day—notes from John and Yoko, the secret code to contact him, drawings, John's doodles, and much more. Complete with an audio and video DVD of the interview that inspired the Academy Award-nominated film of the same name, I Met the Walrus is an immortalized one-on-one moment with John—a must-have for Lennon fans around the world, as well as anyone who has ever dreamed of meeting a hero.

    True Beatle / John Lennon fans will love it ! Very moving , made me love John even more !

    This is a well written and beautifully illustrated account of a teenagers meeting his idol.
    I loved finding out that John and Yoko treated this young person with great respect and encouragement. I loved how the Beatles music informed his musical and individual life in so many ways. I did not have the opportunity to meet John in person but felt right there with a regular person. ( not a star )
    I bought this as a gift for a friend and asked for it for Mothers Day. I received it today from my daughter. My two year old grandaughter pointed to the cover and said " John "
    Paul being the walrus did not stop me from reading. It's not so much Beatle trivia as the spirit of John . The adult reflection of the author to his experience of being with John was quite inspiring. I've read a lot of Beatle books and
    biographies . This book is on my coffee table . Reading it brought me back to 8th and 9th grade when I first heard and saw the Beatles ( Ed Sullivan ) They changed my life too. I decided to help others by being a nurse. This year I retired but still love the music, ideals, peace and love. Thanks Jerry !!!!

    Derp.

    John clearly says in a song on the White Album ( I forget the name of the song ) that "here is another clue for you all, the walrus was Paul." It's not like he said the walrus might be paul or ringo. Come on people. If you wright a book GET UR FACTS RIGHT!!!!!! I hate books with wrong facts.
