Meet the Beatles
The Beatles have profoundly touched the lives of millions. But have you ever wondered why? Why did they become the most powerful artists in history and one of the twentieth century's major symbols of cultural transformation? Meet the Beatles answers those questions and more as it examines the ways the lives of John, Paul, George, and Ringo were inextricably tied to the cultural revolutions their music helped inspire. From their long hair and interest in India to their drug use and admiration for strong women, the Beatles changed the way we look, the way we feel, and even the way we think. This is the book for those who have always been infatuated with the Beatles, as well as those who want to learn for the first time what it all really meant.

Review: Meet the BeatlesUser Review - Goodreads
I learned John and Paul both went to art school and both lost their moms at a young age, but I probably would have gotten the same amount of information froma documentary.
Review: Meet the Beatles: A Cultural History of the Band That Shook Youth, Gender, and the WorldUser Review - Monika - Goodreads
I was looking forward to a study of the social and cultural effects, as the author promised. I was a bit disappointed. Given the extensive bibliography, i expected more. There wasn't much that was new (for me) in the book. Still, a good read if you're interested in the Fab Four. Read full review
