I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my son who is 12 years old. He has the Wii Beatles Rockband. He was so intrigued by Beatles music he wanted to learn more about the Beatles. Since then, he has not been able to put the book down. He was very inspired by this book into learning even more. The book has excellent illustrations and history as well.
Loved the numerous photos and poster. I won't hang the poster but I liked getting it.
I gave this as a gift and the response was just great! The fold-out posters and other memorabilia reprints went beyond my expectations and certainly wowwed the recipients!! I expect to see some items displayed. This is a must-have for all Beatles' fans.
My daughter LOVES this book. She liked reading it and she really likes the posters that were included. As an 11 year old Beatles fan, she thought it was a great gift.
