Amazon Review from Oviedo, Florida, USA , February 25,1999
Personal, yet unbiased; Detailed, yet conversational. This book is the first Beatle biography that I read ( the "only authorised biography of the Beatles" subtitle catching my attention). I must say, all of the ones I have read since have disappointed me compared to this book. Its awesome!! At first, the author talks about himself to establish his credibility, and its worth it. He talked to each of the Beatles privately and spent several days in each of their homes, and stayed in contact with them after the break up. The one thing that really sticks out in my mind is a conversation that Mr. Davis had with Mr. McCartney five years after Mr. Lennon's death. Paul called him to talk about current events and to establish truth to several myths going around, and it was really wonderful. I would suggest this to everyone who is looking for a biography of the Beatles!! THIS IS DEFINITELY THE ONE TO READ!!
