I suppose this hefty volume is best described as a coffee table book, to be dipped into at random, rather than being read cover to cover. This lavishly illustrated book contains lyrics to all the Beatles songs, together with background information about their composition, recording, etc. Although it’s hard to imagine there are any new facts left to uncover, this does a decent job of compiling and summarising the history of the group’s recordings from first to last.
Length of Read:Long
Might appeal to people who enjoyed…

One thing you’ve learned
Music just poured out of this band in a seemingly unstoppable torrent.
