Description
The only authorized biographer of the Beatles, Hunter Davies spent 18 months with them when they were at the peak of their musical creativity and popularity, earning their trust and encouragement, and producing his definitive group biography in 1968. Davies remained friends with each of the lads as they went their separate ways, and so was able to update their stories in 1985 and again in 2002, but the main part of this book, illustrated with 135 black and white photos and documents, is an up-close portrait of the Beatles at their best.

"Since their breakup in 1969, the only band that has managed to become bigger than the Beatles is ... the Beatles. Their inestimable number of fans have not been willing to let it be, and the release of the three Anthology double CD sets has put the group right back on top. Amazingly, their recordings sell more copies now than at the height of Beatlemania. Written in 1968, this was the only official portrait of the group that was produced with their cooperation. For this revision, Davies has included a new introduction and three updated appendixes of Beatles places, memorabilia, and books. Though works on the band are legion, this remains one of the best."Library Journal
