There's only one book that ever truly got inside the Beatles, and this is it....
During 1967 and 1968, Hunter Davies spent 18 months with the Beatles at the peak of their powers as they defined a generation and rewrote popular music. As their only-ever authorised biographer, he had unparalleled access - not just to John, Paul, George, and Ringo, but to friends, family, and colleagues. He collected a wealth of intimate and revealing material that makes this the classic Beatles book - the one all other biographers look to. Hunter Davies remained close with the band and as such has had access to more information over the years.
This 40th anniversary edition contains new material which has never been revealed before, from the author's archives and from the Beatles themselves, that will bring new insights to their legend.

As I have read a lot of Beatles books I was reluctant to listen to this audio book because I thought that I had a good understanding of the Beatles.
I dont think I have ever got through listening to an audio book so quick.
Really interesting and well structured and with the additions from Hunter Davies brings the story upto date.
The narration is first class and I would recommend this to anybody as a really good listen and also to anybody like me who thought that they already most things about the Beatles.
I guarantee you will be engrossed by this audio book and also at times surprised.
Thank you Audible for a great audio book.

It was a long slog but ultimately kept me engaged. I'm not a huge Beatles fan but they're a fascination and as a music fan, I found it a really good listen. The narrator does his best to emulate Liverpudlian accents and they're not too bad. There's a lot of detail in there but if that's what you're after, then get stuck in.
