I have seen Brian Epstein interviews on YouTube and he comes across as a very bright man.

Brian Epstein's magnificence and decency as a person, and secondly as manager of the Fab Four, is what really comes across in this warm, revealing account of the rise of the Beatles. I really think that had Brian lived, the boys would never have split up. Argued yes, but split, no. Not if Brian would have had his way. His integrity (such as not going back on a contract, even though it would have meant the Beatles could have made a ton more money) makes me respect him highly. One such incident was referenced by the Ed Sullivan show, which was contracted at a measly amount, before the mop tops took America by storm and were commanding much larger contract dollars. It's seemingly rare to find this kind of integrity in the entertainment industry, and probably garners the criticism of those who later said Brian was a 'poor' manager, not getting the Beatles their due share. Maybe true...but I don't think anyone around them loved the boys more than Mr. Epstein. There's a very interesting anecdote about Brian's wavering loyalties at one point. He was so tired of the strain and the 24 hours a day work that came with being the Beatles' manager, that he considered selling his contract with them, for a good amount of cash. When confronting the boys with this idea, they thought he was joking, then realizing he was serious, threatened to pack up and quit if Brian left. Brian's quote in this regard speaks to his admiration and loyalty, in return, to the boys. After telling his prospective dealer that the deal was off, Brian remarked:
'And this was the point. The Beatles are not a deal. They are unique human beings and I believe that even if the whole thing peters out I will always be with the Beatles.

Brian Epstein, by writing this book in the middle of the Beatles phenomenon, provides us with a great snapshot in time - a time unlike any other before or perhaps since. Without being conceited (in fact, he reveals in his own words many of his own faults) he provides a fascinating insight into what was probably one of the great judges of pop music talent of the last 30 years. Reading this now, knowing how Brian's life was to turn out, leads one to wonder just what might have been. His style of writing, more conversational and "simpler" than one might have gathered from his outward appearance, makes this an easy and entertaining read and a must for Beatle fans.

This book is probably one of the best books I have ever read. I read it constantly and I never can put it down. It is the most beautifully told story of the early beatles from someone who was actually there. A must for ALL Beatles fans.

Format: Paperback
A well-written and informative little book that offers the reader vivid detail - thoughts, feelings, events - about the early days. Epstein was there from Day One, even before Day One, and his story will fascinate any Beatle fan. We also learn about the unique, quiet man who was able to see The Bealtes unique qualities. Martin Lewis' intro offers great historical perspective. A must for any Fab Four Fan.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must for all Beatle fans. Brian is honest and sincere and really shows how much he loved "the boys". He provides backround information of his life, but not so much that bores you. Although it was written in 1964 Brian provides an outlook that holds true in the 1990s. He is honest and admits his and the Beatles faults. Truly a must have for Beatle fans.

This book is one of a kind. There are no other books that are in Brian Epstein words and his thoughts are invaluable for research.

Great Beatles history. Provides excellent insight into Brian Epstein's drive and complete dedication into making the Beatles a household name. Sad he died so young. His autobiography matches other writings about the Beatles.
