From AudioFile:

Given their impact on the music world, it's surprising to realize that the Beatles were together for only about 10 years. Here in detail are those years, plus a few others. With an appropriate British accent, Alfred Molina tells of the Liverpool upbringing, the coming together (not an immediate success), the creative process ("Hey, Jude" was written for John's son Julian), the tours and recording sessions, the genesis of the record covers, the drugs and girlfriends, and the ultimate breakup. The text is so interesting that all Molina has to do is read it capably and clearly--which he does. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
