About this title:
Synopsis:
In the years following the 1960s, Beatle fans around the world were twice-stunned: in 1970, when their beloved group disbanded, and ten years later when the murder of John Lennon ended a decade of hope that somehow the Fab Four would reunite. Between those milestones were astounding highs and unfathomable lows. George Harrison's 1971 benefit for the suffering of Bangladesh showed the world the possibilities of rock's altruism, while Lennon asked the world to "imagine" universal peace before sitting out half the decade to raise his son. Ringo Starr, the most overlooked Beatle, carved himself a surprising niche in film before launching a string of hit singles. And Paul McCartney, widely seen as the instigator of the Fabs' breakup, became one of rock's most beloved performers, racking up record-breaking smashes that climaxed with a triumphant world tour in 1976. Fab Four FAQ 2.0 picks up the story where the acclaimed Fab Four FAQ left off. Loaded with images of rare period ephemera, including periodicals, single sleeves, and movie stills, this is the first comprehensive biography of all four ex-Beatles. This book covers everything from their recording careers in the decade after the band's dissolution to the musicians they played with, the bands they influenced, the manifestations of latter-day Beatlemania, and the constant clamor for reunion expressed by fans and - sometimes - by the four themselves.

Book Description: Backbeat Books, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This book synthesizes and extends recent research on the role that imperfect and dispersed information plays in macroeconomics and finance. By way of many examples and applications, Laura Veldkamp forcefully argues that research in this area should more strongly emphasize how information is produced and exchanged, and how agents choose their information. The book discusses new modeling approaches and new applications, draws many connections between different topics, and covers new techniques. While covering this new theoretical ground, Veldkamp insists on explaining stylized facts, addressing empirical puzzles, and generating testable predictions."-- Pierre-Olivier Weill, University of California, Los Angeles.
