—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

Top Customer Reviews
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.
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!
"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!
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.
It Was Twenty Years Ago Today, for a better taste of Beatle's philosophy.

To attempt to reduce the genius of the Beatles to this new age, "live your dreams," sophmoric pablum is to demonstrate that you didn't "get" the Beatles at all. Read morePublished on April 30, 2007 by Eric Schenk
