I never saw this book locally to buy or I would have bought it. I read about it in Rolling Stone. After searching locally, I finally had the idea to order it from Amazon. I like reading about the Beatles music. I' have enjoyed this thick magazine very much.

I noticed a fellow passenger on a recent flight reading this special collectors edition - seeing the amount of detail I just had to get a copy!. This is a great resource for Beatles material particularly as I am fortunate to have been a teenager during their greatest years (at that time still in the UK). It's amazing how just seeing the various song titles you start humming the music!!

Well recommended and great value for money!

A great compendium of back-scene stories about these incredibly talented down-to-earthlings. But if you don't love the Beatles, you won't want to read these stories..... however, you should probably have your head examined.

Well,All I can say is that this is a fantastic book for not only Beatles fans,but Musicolgists,and Songwriters at large,Worldwide.It is great for the debate of what Beatle songs are the greatest,and provided me and my friends a lot of fun debating our faves.Personally,I love the Beatles and their music so much,my final vote is that Paul,George,John,and even Ringo have given me equal amounts of joy and inspiration,in their own write.Truly 4 musical "Angels" that made this planet a better place.I highly recommend this book! It is a beautiful trip down a musically lane not unlike what fans in times past enjoyed with writers like Bach and Gershwin! -Joe in Oregon

I know quite a bit about the Beatles. If there were a Beatles edition of Trivial Pursuit, no one would play with me except really weirded out Beatles-heads, because only they would have a chance to beat me. I don't think my Beatles fandom is at a pathological level, but if I took it up just a notch or two, there could be real cause for concern.

But this little volume, which I picked up earlier this year in a 7-Eleven on a whim, is really pretty great -- much better than I expected -- and contains a lot of little details I didn't know. I was actually familiar with most of the basic stories about how and why and where these 100 songs were written and recorded, but there is a lot of really interesting, kind of obscure information here.

If you are looking for a small, entertaining package of Beatles information that will really give you a taste of the band and the dynamics within it, this is actually a pretty good place to start. The Beatles were the most important band of the 1960s for two reasons -- the songwriting and the advances in studio techniques they pioneered. This volume concentrates on those two elements. That's the real value.

You can forget Rolling Stone's actually selections regarding the 100 songs themselves. It's crap, and that's precisely what any normal person would expect. Who cares what some Rolling Stone editor thinks is the Beatles' 17th greatest song, as opposed to their 93rd greatest song? I would have included "All Together Now", for example, but no -- not these guys. They actually put in "Mother Nature's Son". No accounting for taste.

But none of that matters. What matters is the music, and this magazine sized volume gives a decent little write up with good background on 100 great songs. An excellent intro to Beatles lore, and sure to reveal something new to all but the most obsessed.

This magazine covers a lot of the back story behind each Beatles hit song. Its a great
coffee table book even though its just a magazine. I haven't read it all yet, as mine is in great condition. I know its one to add to the collection. Its a keeper.

A must have for any true Beatles fan. I thought I knew a lot about the Beatles, but I learned more.
