more new stuff than any 2008 Lennon book has any right to be, loads of new quotes from Paul Mac and George Martin. Very good on Hamburg and Liverpool - always the best bits in Beatle books, no?
and, post-"Shout", he goes out of his way to be kind to Macca - though I havn't got to Apple yet!

I guess if you're a kid, or an adult unfamiliar with the Beatles, it might be of interest...but, I really don't want to hear Norman's "take" on the music, trying to read John's mind (or Paul's or the other's for that matter).
I prefer books that tell more of a linear story, that maybe surprise us with facts and nuggets that we've either never known before, or shed more light on what we DO know.
This is just another book by some guy who fancies himself a "writer" not a documenter.
Again, give me meat, Norman...not your dim-witted opinions or projections on things.
