"Musicians will enjoy the close-up images of the band with its famed guitars: George Harrison with his Gibson acoustic, John Lennon with his Rickenbacker, Paul McCartney with his violin-shaped Hofner bass. We've seldom seen these instruments so closely and looking so shiny and new. The same is true for the pictures of the Beatles themselves. They look so young, fresh and lively that it's hard to believe the pictures are more than 50 years old. . . [This book is] an excellent collection of one photographer's intimate view of the Beatles, featuring mostly unfamiliar and very compelling images of history's most famous band." -WinkBooks.net
