If as I was, you are or have been a Beatles fan(atic); there is not alot that is new here. However if you only know of the Beatles as they were packaged for the public, this will be a good listen for you. It is not a rewriting of the Beatles myth, but is the truth that was left out of the authorized version by Davies and sadly by The Beatles themselves when they issued their anthology.
I did catch a couple of small errors in the book: As I recall,It was a fan that called and got the Paul is Dead hoax rolling, not the disk jockey. And John and Yoko's poster, billboard, campaign was, "War Is Over! (If You want it.) Not, The war Is Over. These are small, but very public things, and it had me wondering what else might not be accurate.
I recommend this book because of all of the information that is in this one source. The Beatles are history now and it is a good thing to be able to see a more complete picture of the group.
