The Memoirs of Billy Shears Paperback – September 9, 2009
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

When I was little- too young to understand the lyrics- I always thought even up-tempo Beatles music was very sad. Now that I've read this book, I see that much of their music was indeed full of grieving. Kids know things that adults talk themselves out of. I started this book interested in a conspiracy. Now I pray for everyone involved in what appears to be an epic, lingering tragedy. Theirs is a story with victims all around. And should "Sir Paul" and Macca somehow hear me, I give you both my deep gratitude for what you sacrificed to bring great art to the world. Wow.
Fantastic song index included! Finally we can unlock the hidden meaning in the greatest songs of The Beatles and McCartney. Here he explains it all - what the lyrics mean (and it may be different than what you thought all these years), the context in which the songs were wrote and a perspective closer than ever before made available for public consumption, a true insiders perspective straight from Beatle Paul himself. This book will crack your head wide, wide open and give you cause to reevaluate everything you thought you knew about the Beatles, about McCartney and about the World. Find out who Sgt. Pepper, who the Walrus, and who Desmond & Molly Jones really are! Read this book and you will soon be reading Beatles Enlightenment and the rest by Thomas E. Uharriet
Paul McCartney has denied all the Paul is Dead rumors all his life. Why would he assist with the writing of a book stating in incredible detail how he replaced Paul McCartney and lived as him after his death in 1966, etc.? Worth reading with an open mind. At the least, it's incredibly entertaining: All 600 pages.
