What the Critics Say

"This is the most detailed description yet of the Beatles' American tours, and one of the few books on the band written in the past decade that can be considered indispensable." (Publishers Weekly)
"There had never been a cultural phenomenon to match Beatlemania...and Kane vividly portrays its familiar trappings....More fascinating are Kane's behind-the-scenes views of 'the boys', extracted from many interviews." (Booklist)

    "A Ticket To Ride"

    This is an account of the Beatle's '64-'65 USA tour from a reporters perspective. He does a good job overall. I wish he would have given more detail of how the beatle's changed in appearance. He talks much of how they matured and came into their own in attitude and confidence and opinions, but how did their hair change, who grew facial hair, how did they dress, etc. The final hour of the book is actual tape recordings taken by the author during the 2 tours. This is the most delightful thing of the book, hearing their young voices and responses to his questions. Many simples answers, but a real bonus. I highly recommend this book to any nostalgic Beatle's fan.

    "Great Book"

    This was just an amazing book. From the stories of the road to what went on behind the scenes, the author makes you feel like you're right there on the Electra as the Beatles criss cross America in the mid sixties. Loved every minute.

    Story
    "First audio book I can't finish"

    I was looking forward to the book but the author decided to narrate it himself, big mistake. He may have been a well known and respected journalist but he should leave narration to a professional. I found myself drifting off and having to rewind constantly. His narration is so very drab, a complete flat line.... I am so disappointed being a HUGE Beatle fan. I can normally find the good in most things, this one was tough. Very hard to listen to for more than five minutes at a time.

    "Top of the List Read"
    What made the experience of listening to Ticket to Ride the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it was read by the author.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Because the author was a reporter, it is very believable. So many books are second and third account references and you are unsure of the authenticity.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole book was memorable, beginning to end.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I was there, really!

    "Buckle up"

    This is something different. Blow by Blow account of the early Beatle US tours. More than behind the scenes. It also comes with the actual tapes at the end of the book. A must for the Beatle Fan.

    "Captivating Insiders View"

    Larry Kane did an exceptional job in writing this book! I was surprisingly impressed with his professionalism and positive attitude in this truly amazing audiobook. There are several actual interviews with each Beatle included at the end of this book. It was an especially nice treat to listen to!

    "A great taste of Beatlemania from the inside"

    It's obvious Larry Kane thought quite highly of The Beatles, although it is equally obvious that John was his favorite, Paul his least favorite (contrast that to Geoff Emerick, who wrote "Here, There and Everywhere," who favored Paul over John). You definitely get the flavor of the whole Beatlemania thing, and a highlight is listening to the actual tapes at the end of the audiobook and hearing the Beatles in their own words. Kane's reading is a little dry, but overall a fascinating listen. Beatles fans will love it.
