I enjoyed reading about The Beatles during their two American tours, as witnessed by reporter Larry Kane who worked as part of their traveling press on both U.S. tours. The book can be a little dull at times, but I enjoyed learning little details about the band like the fact that George and John were both very afraid of flying, and John feared dying in a plane crash like Buddy Holly. Other good tidbits include who helped the Beatles hook up with their female fans, manager Brian Epstein's control over the boys' behavior, and how drugs were part of the scene even in the early days. The CD contains Larry Kane's interviews with John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Good reading for hard-core Beatle's fans.
