Summary:

As soon as the Beatles became famous, the spin machines began to construct a myth - a myth that has continued into the present. The truth is far more interesting, far more exciting and far more moving. After years of international research, hundreds of unprecedented interviews and the mining of tens of thousands of previously unseen documents, Bob Spitz has written the definitive, epic, all-encompassing biography not just of John and Paul and their two mates from Liverpool, but of a band - a loud, angry rock 'n' roll band composed of four kids who became gods.
