Overview

Follow in John Lennon's footsteps from Liverpool to Hamburg and the world, to NYC. With lavish photographs and illustrations, brief text by friends and fans -- as well as quotes and anecdotes by family members and those who knew him; including, May Pang, Yoko Ono, Cynthia Lennon, Sean and Julian Lennon many others.

"A unique must-have book for any Lennon or Beatle fan!"

Endorsed by Paul Saltzman, Emmy Award winning producer of films and author of 'The Beatles in Rishikesh,' Shannon McDonald - named best Beatle artist by the Mayor of Liverpool - David Fischer, VP at Bloomingdale's for 'LOVE' Cirque du Soliel, Peter Marinucci of 'The Beatles Examiner,' Tom Aguiar of Octopus' Magazine, Beatles Unlimited Magazine, Gary Van Scyoc of Elephants Memory of John and Yoko's Plastic Ono Band, Dennis Mitchel, of 'Breakfast with the Beatles' radio show, and Linda Keen, author of 'Across the Universe with John Lennon.'

The book features the stunning pictures of Lennon's haunts by world reknowned photographer, Dave Beckerman, and iy is illustrated throughout with original art by featured artists as well as fans.
Interwoven throughout the entire book, are the haunting poems of Ms. Furedi. Linda Keen has reviewed Ms. Furedi's book and described it as 'beautiful...brilliant...unique. It made me cry. It has to be the most sensitive books i have ever seen about New York's lost minstrel, John Lennon. Each time I open its pages, my heart sighs again with nostalgic joy because I feel not only pain, but innocent love. It is a book to keep next to your bedside for inspiration when your sould has lost track of its wistful dreams...

Sid Benstein said, 'this book will allow you to remember John Lennon more."

The unique format contains 'in your own write' pages, where you may choose to slip in your own memorabilia, writing or art to make this book a one of a kind, stand alone edition. There is nothing like it about John Lennon on the market.

In addition, there is an interactive website given where you may interact with other readers and the author and a Facebook Page where you may submit material for new and forthcoming editions of the book in other new and creative formats.

It is, however, not necessary to add anything to this artistic coffee table book about the singular legend of Rock & Roll which remind us why we always loved John Lennon and always will.

    A Must Have for John Lennon Fans

    This is the most beautiful tribute done by Judith Furedi for the fallen Beatle. In the years where we have seen many publications of Lennon's biography, this emphasizes his most memorable, if not, happy years he had while living in New York City. What makes it more memorable is the comments from those who knew him, and those who were lucky to see him in Central Park, or at his favorite cafe. It is a book that looks great on a coffee table, but will give you the itch to pick it up and read it. It will stir your emotions as it takes you to the innermost part of Judith Furedi as she remembers her first few years in The Big Apple, and how it coincided with the Lennon years at the Dakota, and his untimely death. It's very well documented with superb photographs and illustrations. This make a great gift for a friend, or even better, for yourself.
