A must for any Beatles fan

This is a really great book for any die-hard Beatles fan. Have you ever wondered what was meant by "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"? Heard lots of stories about "Yesterday" but wonder how Paul really came to write it? Confused by all those strings on "The Long and Winding Road"? Then this is the book for you.

It looks at all of the Beatles songs, in chronological order, and gives you little bits of insight into the stories, the logic and the madness that went into their creation. In a sense it is the history of the Beatles from the music's perspective, and fascinating it is too!

I guess this is a little intense for anyone with a passing interest in the Beatles or the music of the 60s, but for the rest of us, it is a wonderful reference book.
