It is very good. You cansee what they did in the studio, what the songs are about and many more things. I keep looking back at it when i listen to the songs on my computer, they do add awesome easter eggs about the songs and i can here the dog barking at the end of i feel fine, and the baby crying at exactly 2:22 on Revolution 9. Very good read if you are a true 'blue swade shoes' beatle fan. Now to go eat a savory truffle. BTW I rate this four and a half stars. :^)

Even if (or maybe especially if) you already know a lot about The Beatles, you'll find this book insightful and fun. As with any list/ranking, part of the fun is reading their justifications/reasoning for their choices and thinking about whether you agree or disagree. (Is Martha My Dear really better than Help!) The authors do a good job of explaining what elements of the songs they like. Will encourage you to get out your CDs (or Ipod) and re-listen to many of these songs.

Good job of explaing what the songs are about, but i wanted a little more in depth explanation. Also the book needed some more opinions than tose of Spignesi and Lewis

John lennon himself called 'good morning,good morning' garbage.He called 'sun king' a 'throwaway'.Both are included in this book.He called 'and your bird can sing' a 'horror' and it is also included here! good songs are left out,like 'yellow submarine',a song that was a #1 for the beatles! c'mon! Also, don't let the color pictures on the front fool you-ALL the pictures inside are in black and white!
