A fun to read book about my favorite band. This is a collection of interview transcripts strung together to tell the story of the Fab Four. The interviews are with people who were there: managers, relatives, friends, and The Beatles themselves.

The book tells the first hand story of The Beatles from their early start in Liverpool to the days when the band broke up. I don't think there was really information that I hadn't heard before, but this was a fairly quick read and very enjoyable.

The Beatles: An Oral History by David Pritchard (Hyperion 1998) (780.92). The biography-lite of the Beatles. Snore. My rating: 4/10, finished 9/1/2010.

I borrowed it from the library and LOVED it. Because it's based on a radio program, it's like reading a radio transcript, which made it easy for me to read.
