I thoroughly enjoyed this book on John Lennon by his first wife, Cynthia. I always wondered about her and what might have compelled him to be the way he was and to eventually get so involved with Yoko. Here, Cynthia tells her side of the story in a very straightforward, yet sensitive way. Plenty of amusing anecdotes and tales about The Beatles during the years that they rose to unprecedented fame. Cynthia knew John from the beginning and has a unique perspective. She writes with sensitivity and love, even when describing some hard truths. The world knows Lennon as a musical genius, but what was he really like as a person, away from the television cameras? This book lays it all out -- the good, the bad, and the ugly. A fascinating read, but definitely not for those who covet the image of Lennon as a perfect human being. He wasn't.
