This is not merely a biography of The Beatles but a unique memoir by a Liverpool - born author who knew John, Paul, George and Ringo as friends throughout the height of their fame. As The Beatles' Press Officer, he worked within the group's closest circle for six breakneck years during the Beatlemania era of the Sixties. Few were closer to The Beatles than Tony Barrow, and in this highly acclaimed book, he holds a mirror up to the Fab Four and offers his own insider's perspective on that four - way dynamic that spawned the greatest pop group the world has ever seen.

Review:

"Genuinely takes the reader deep into the band's world." --"Q" magazine

About the Author:

A career-long professional writer and PR consultant, Tony Barrow was The Beatles' publicist between 1962 when they issued their first single "Love Me Do", and 1968, when they set up their own management company.

Barrow coined The Beatles' nickname the "Fab Four", wrote the sleeve notes for a number of the group's album covers, set up their huge international press conferences, selected their media interviews and fixed up their photo shoots at home and abroad during the touring years, and finally collaborated with Paul McCartney in 1967 to compile the cartoon-strip story booklet that came with The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour recordings. He is one of a tiny handful of surviving eyewitnesses able to write a first-hand account of life within The Beatles' close-knit entourage and the only remaining professional writer from that circle.

Few were closer to The Beatles than Tony Barrow, and this is not merely a biography of the Fab Four, but a unique and vividly personal memoir by an author who knew John, Paul, George and Ringo as friends throughout the height of their fame.
