I've read a couple of other biographies of the Beatles and was disappointed with their depth and discussion. I was not disappointed with this biography. Lots of rich detail into the lives of each of the Beatles and their career - with lots of discussion of their early days - and the important people who worked with them (Brian Epstein and George Martin, in particular). You get a great sense of who they were and why things turned out the way they did.
While no book can cover everything, I'm still mystified by "Beatlemania". What confluence of factors led to the explosion around this particular group based on, essentially, two successful singles? Spitz tries to explain it, in some part, but he didn't really do the job.
Bottom line, I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in the Beatles. My hat is off to Bob Spitz - bravo!
