    In John, Cynthia recalls those times with the loving honesty of an insider, offering new and fascinating insights into the life of John Lennon and the early days of the Beatles. And with the perspective only years can provide, she also tells the compelling story of her marriage to a man who was to become a music legend, a cultural hero, and a defining figure of the twentieth century.

    Overall

    The book was written by Cynthia Lennon, John Lennon's first wife, and it is look at the early days of The Beatles and their rise to the biggest band to ever exist. John fought to have the book published in the 70's; and I don't really understand why. When you hear the book you can tell that Cynthia was, and still has, love for John. She talks about the ups and downs of being married to one of the biggest stars in the music industry, about the break-up of her marriage, the lack of interaction of John and his son Julian, the impact Yoko Ono had over John and to his tragic and untimely death of a legend. I recommend this book for any fan of John Lennon or The Beatles. The little stories of her life, in hiding due to the fans, how promoters had to get The Beatles and their wives in and out of hotels and venues they staying at or entertaining. Cynthia talks about where she was when she heard the news, at Ringo's ex-wife, and that Ringo was the one who phoned to tell them. She also talks about how Ringo was at his ex-wife side when she died; which to me tells you alot about Ringo and his support for his ex-wife as opposed to John who had little to do with his at all. Well worth reading.
