Thinking for Myself
on April 6, 2017
To say this is an autobiography would be to use the term very loosely. Those who are purchasing the book should be aware of this. While the volume is several hundred pages long, the actual "autobiographical" information is contained to the first 75 (ish) pages, and this section is effectively an extended interview between George and Neil Aspinall. By this I mean, George discusses something for a few paragraphs and Neil chimes in with italicized text to elaborate or give context to George's musings. The vast, vast majority of the book is scans of song lyrics with short paragraphs (or sometimes even just a few sentences from George) explaining something about the song, writing the song, or the legacy of the song.
That being said, this is a lovely book. While it may not be as detailed in the autobiographical section as many would like, the handwritten lyrics are lovely and the piece is very well laid out with beautiful artwork and photographs. Fans of George Harrison will certainly enjoy this book, even if it does not provide much by way of autobiography.
