Important But A Bit Tedious
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
OK, this book fills an interesting niche - interviews with original teenage Beatles fans. But Leonard manages to make the whole thing sound like a very long term paper. Each point is interesting and well-documented. But there's a difference between documenting the Beatles experience versus conveying the thrill of being there. Chalk this up as good research and let's hope other writers can build on it.
Would you be willing to try another book from Candy Leonard? Why or why not?
Depends on the topic - I'd expect it to read like a term paper.
What aspect of Tamara Marston’s performance would you have changed?
Less chirpy - just relax and read - no need to pump your voice up.
Did Beatleness inspire you to do anything?

Nostalgic, but silly
Would you try another book from Candy Leonard and/or Tamara Marston?
Tamara Marston, but probably not Candy Leonard
What could Candy Leonard have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Change the title and not include so many references to "Beatleness"
Any additional comments?
Some of this book was just silly, beginning with the title, but some of it was pure nostalgia for me since I was in the sixth grade when the Beatles first came to the U.S. The author discusses not only the Beatles, but what was going on in the world. Nice nostalgia, but getting around the silliness was hard at times.
