The National Bestseller with a New Foreword by Anthony DeCurtis
"The best backstage Beatles book." --Time
"The definitive book on the Beatles." --New York Post
Here is the national bestseller that Newsday called "the most authoritative and candid look yet at the personal lives...of the oft-scrutinized group." In The Love You Make, Peter Brown, a close friend of and business manager for the band--and the best man at John and Yoko's wedding--presents a complete look at the dramatic offstage odyssey of the four lads from Liverpool who established the greatest music phenomenon of the twentieth century. Written with the full cooperation of each of the group's members and their intimates, this book tells the inside story of the music and the madness, the feuds and the drugs, the marriages and the affairs--from the greatest heights to the self-destructive depths of the Fab Four.
In-depth and definitive, The Love You Make is an astonishing account of four men who transformed the way a whole generation of young people thought and lived. It reigns as the most comprehensive, revealing biography available of John, Paul, George, and Ringo.
"Finally, the real story." --Rolling Stone
"Literate, complex...more than sensationalism...a hard-hitting yet sympathetic book that unflinchingly captures the highs and lows." --The Boston Globe
"The best backstage memoir yet of the most amazing musical phenomenon of our times." --The Washington Post Book World
