This book is for those who’ve done their doctorate in Beatlosophy. Those who know the Beatles story backwards, but still keep begging for more.

When I told George and Olivia Harrison that I’d read everything there was to be read about The Beatles, they exclaimed in unison: “I hope not everything!” I assured them that, mercifully, cheap tabloids from Europe and America did not make their way to India those days. And that what I’d therefore read were mostly proper biographies or autobiographies, with a few coffee-table books thrown in. Some good, some not so good, but most of them quite authentic and credible.
