"[An] absorbing and incisive evaluation... [The] book thoroughly confirms the legacy and mystique of The Beatles -- irrefutably described as 'one of the emphatic historical and cultural forces of the 20th century.'" --Russell Newmark, The Beat "With The Beatles, Inglis provides general readers with an introduction to the band by filling a much-needed gap; emphasizing the radicalism inherent in a collaborative, collective group." --Erin Torkelson Weber, Newman University, Popular Music Vol. 37, No. 1 "[The Beatles] strips away much of the myth and legend surrounding the band and concentrates on their musical output and as such, it will be of value to those who want to access this favet of the Beatles' career." --David Kane, Birmingham City University, Riffs
