    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.

    Story

    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.
