YA Another book about the Beatles, but this one is definitely worth the shelf space even in its oversize format. It contains many previously unpublished photographs of both the Fab Four and their memorabilia. The text details their single and group lives from childhood to the present. The Beatles clearly ``grow up'' in these pages, from the raw-energied rough-cut adolescents seen on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 through the years of fan mania which drove them to drugs, to stop live performances, to meditate, and finally to new heights of musicianship and new forms of music. The real import of this title is its discussion throughout of the importance of the Beatles to the general direction of popular music in the 20-year span in which they were active; they were not great musicians initially, but they have remained throughout daring artists in many fields whose impact on modern popular culture is immeasurable. Other titles (Davies' The Beatles McGraw-Hill, 1978 and Schaffner's The Boys from Liverpool Methuen, 1980) provide much drier, more in-depth biographies; Giuliano offers color, flair, and a wider perspective.Dorcas Hand, Episcopal High School, Bellaire, Tex.
