The Beatles are coming!: the birth of Beatlemania in America
"The Beatles Are Coming!" covers the Beatles first visit to the United States and the events leading up to the group's arrival on February 7, 1964. It is the most thorough and accurate book ever published on how Beatlemania evolved in America.

It tells the stories of two small companies, Vee-Jay and Swan, who issued the group's records without success in 1963.

The book concludes with stories and pictures of the Beatles historic first U.S. visit in February, 1964.
