really liked it

Very thorough, quite fair IMO both in good and in bad; shows Lennon was a human being with his strengths and weaknesses, and so was Yoko, Paul, etc... Doesn't take sides, but introduces different theories and let's the reader make up their own mind, which is rare in biographies. Usually the author just chooses one theory and goes with that. This is how I would like all bios to be written. Professionally, avoid of stupid gossip (leaves out the most outrageous stories I have heard and that have no other witness but the "author" of such stories) that is just that, and offers two sides to all things that are under debate. Very good.
