Here Comes the Sun

"Many well-Known artist have touched people's hearts with their music but few have ever succeeded in touching people's souls. That was George's gift, and his story is described here with affection and taste. A wonderful book."
—Mia Farrow

"There is a palpable excitement to this book that made me feel I was there, with George, on his journey. He once said, 'I want to be God-conscious. That's really my only ambition, and everything else in life is incidental.' This extraordinary work provides nourishment for all who hunger, as he did, for that ultimate state of grace."
—Martin Rutte, coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work

"I have fond memories of times George and I spent together, and  Here Comes the Sun really captures him-not just as a Beatle but as an artist and a human being."
—Peter Frampton

"I love this book for many reason, most of all for its fair and sensitive portrayal of my brother's open-minded approach to spirituality. He saw Spirit as belonging to everyone, and that wonderful quality in him comes through here with dignity and insight."
—Louise Harrison

"Wonderful! A comprehensive portrait of a gentle driving force."
—Mike Pinder, founder of the Moody Blues

"A moving account of George Harrison's inner life and growth, this book not only provides fascinating details about his career and relations with his fellow  Beatles but also insight into the deeper motives behind his music and spirt5iual search. A thoroughly enjoyable read."
—Klaus K. Klostermaier, Professor Religious Studies, University of Manitoba, and author of A Survey of Hinduism
