Here is the full release directly from the Book Publisher:
The world's leading authority on the Beatles - and author of the bestselling
Beatles Recording Sessions - has completed the riveting first volume in a
groundbreaking trilogy about the iconic band that changed the face of pop music.
TUNE IN uncovers the lives of John, Paul, George and Ringo as never before.
Their enduring fame and legendary exploits have led to countless biographies of the
Beatles, but now we have the ultimate portrait. Tune In is the first book in a
genre-defining trilogy, telling the story of the Beatles from before their beginning up to
the final night of 1962, with success within their grasp and on the cusp of a whole new
kind of celebrity.
This is the lesser-known Beatles story - the pre-Fab years of Liverpool and Hamburg
- and in many respects the most absorbing, extraordinary and incredible period of all.
Here is the warts and all story of their family backgrounds, childhoods, and their
infatuation with American music. As Tune In chronicles in amazing nuance, everything
comes together in these years and in this one book: the Beatles' talent, charisma, looks,
personalities, honesty, humor, attitude - and the Lennon-McCartney
Forget what you've read or know about the Beatles, tune in, and start anew.

is a staggering achievement - the most detailed recreation of how the most famous rock
'n roll band in history came to be.

interest and enthusiasm.
