"Philip Norman's biography of the Beatles is an account of their lives, their music, and their times. Now brought completely up to date, this epic tale charts the rise of four scruffy Liverpool lads from their wild, often comical early days to the astonishing heights of Beatlemania, from the chaos of Apple and the collapse of hippy idealism to the band's acrimonious split. It also describes their struggle to escape the smothering Beatles' legacy and the tragic deaths of John Lennon and George Harrison." "Shout! is essential reading not just for Beatles fans but for anyone with an interest in pop music."--BOOK JACKET.
