Editorial Reviews

Review

The Beatles' music and message remain timeless. In this wise and entertaining book, a fresh new light is cast on the genius of the Fab Four. The Beatles are like a time-release capsule: They never stop giving you that love—that's all you really need.
—Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love

The Beatles. Some people say it really was [about] the music, but that was only part of it....They represented hope, optimism, wit, and lack of pretension, that "anyone can do it" provided they had [the] will.
—Derek Taylor, former Beatles press agent

I'm a huge Beatles fan, and have read all the books on the market about the Fab Four. I thought I'd seen it all, so I didn't think I'd like this new "self-help" styled book.
Wow - was I wrong! Because I LOVED it! For the first time, I see the Beatles legacy actually helping me to live my own life in a more powerful, creative and joyful way.
The author knows his stuff, I learned several things I never knew about the Beatles. The author especially captures the spiritual essence of our dear-departed beloved George Harrison, and clearly shows his impact on the group and the world.
PLUS - "The Beatles Way" is never boring or preachy. It's a fun read, and Lange puts the "Yeah!" into the "Yeah Yeah Yeah!"
Get this book! I bought six copies for my friends and kids - it's the only self-help book I ever found useful! Kudos and thanks to the author for this breath of fresh air.

This excellent book is just like having the Beatles act as your personal instructors in the areas of self improvement and awareness. It is a literary magnet; it will draw readers repeatedly and remain well loved. It is well researched and I like the way the author is able to apply Beatle quotes and Beatle themed concepts to a myriad of issues. The author compliments his readers' intelligence; his book is a fresh gem of Beatle input that will delight everyone and not just avid Beatles fans.

In the words of the great Paul McCartney, "I'm so glad our songs were about love, peace and understanding." I think this review can be summed up with a quote from John Lennon: "Imagine all the people living life in peace." Ringo's levity from 1964 also can be applied here when he says of his hair that "it's stuck on good and proper." This book will stick to your mind, good and proper. George Harrison's wisdom can be applied here as well with his 1965 classic, "Think For Yourself." That's what makes this book so wonderful. It really makes you think and come away with insights you might not otherwise have considered.

This book is serious, fun and inspirational, yeah, yeah, yeah!

I discovered this great book during a visit to Manhattan recently and I flipped! On the spot, I bought three more copies for my kids and friends for holiday gifts.
"The Beatles Way: Fab Wisdom For Everyday Life" has a highly original but simple concept to follow - To present the Beatles' accomplished lifestyles as models for our own.
The author clearly shows how we can emulate the Fab Four in striving to live out our own dreams. For instance, I learned quite a lot about how the Bealtes approached spirituality, and I've taken their lead and am now studying meditation. This one breakthrough alone has changed my life dramatically for the better!
And I can see how this book will effect my older son (an aspiring filmaker)- as he can learn to model the Beatles determination and willingness to work hard to accomplish set goals - without giving up.
The author also talks about the women in the Beatles lives - and I came away with a new appreciation for Yoko Ono and Linda McCartney.
The book is fast-paced - sort of like "A Hard Day's Night" in a book - and I can't say enough good things about it. Buy this book - you'll treasure it for years to come, and you'll "Meet The Beatles" in a whole new light!

I was able to get an advance copy, and I have to say - it's really an amazing book. Unlike tons of other Beatle books, "The Beatles Way" focuses on the Fab Four's lifestyles - and how we can model those lifestyles to enrich our own.
The quotes from the Beatles that underscore the seven "principles" of Fabness really spoke to me - it's like having John, Paul, George and Ringo as personal life coaches.
I especially like the action items (called "You're the Fifth Beatle!" at the end of each chapter)- here's where I can take action on what I've learned and it really works! Positive lessons like keeping a sense of humor, and taking time to dream the way the Beatles did - gave me a fresh start to the day.
Great concept, great book. I highly recommend it for self-help fans, and not just for Beatle fans.

I picked up this book quite by accident as I was shopping in a natural food store in London. I never tried many self-help-style books before - so my opinion was neither positive or negative. But I took a chance. I read this book in an afternoon (recently) and have re-read bits of it each day since. I carry it with me to read when I have a moment during the day. The principles are universal and can be applied to every area of life. My life was different the very first day I tried applying these principles. They are simple; not easy, but simple. If you wish to gain peace in your life and be more comfortable with yourself, others, and the universe, read this book and learn to apply its suggestions in your everyday living. This book is on my all-time great list -- I'm going to make sure I'm never without a copy. May it be a blessing to others the way it is to me.

I guess I'm in the minority, but I didn't really want a new age self-help book for how to get along with your co-workers and family. The Beatles meant bigger things to me about lifestyle and idealism--bigger and more complex than this book which even has a section about the importance of choosing good names for your ideas and products or whatever...it's okay--but it's not quite the depth I was looking for. I'd check out Derek Taylor's
It Was Twenty Years Ago Today, for a better taste of Beatle's philosophy.
