'A comprehensive, fascinating, well-produced, and finely printed publication that captures a moment of contemporary culture with breadth and depth. It brings then into now - and shows how similar and different life is today' - Will Gompertz 'A handsome tome... never less than fascinating... The album was a high point in an astonishing career and the book does it justice' - The Sun 'A fine tribute to this intensely creative time in the couple's joined-at-the-hip lives... A sumptuous and lovingly created example of the bookmakers' art, an encyclopaedic extravaganza of reminiscences and memorabilia' - The Budapest Times 'A hardback compendium of first-hand accounts about the band drawn from interviews over the years... It contains photos, lyrics, drawings and letters, and will be as interesting to Lennon completists as The Beatles Anthology was to general fans 20 years ago' - Daily Telegraph
