Reviews

"A goody bag of tributes and recollections." --Vanity Fair

"One of the more fascinating new books on the Fab Four's impact." --The Boston Globe

"A great crop of recollections of the first wave of Beatlemania. There are reminiscences by fans from big cities and tiny towns, some sweet, some hilarious." --Tampa Bay Times

"This winsome book is overwhelmingly infused with affection both for the Beatles and for the opportunity to revisit childhood and adolescent memories . . . Readers seeking a nostalgia-tinged picture of the Beatles are in for a treat." --Library Journal

"In this compulsively readable personal history, Rowlands gathers the recollections of fans, writers, musicians, and artists about the deep ways that the Beatles and their music affected them." --Publishers Weekly
