'You Never Give Me Your Money' By Peter Doggett

It was the subtitle, 'The Beatles After The Break-Up', that attracted me to this great book. Doggett does a wonderful job of explaining the musical, legal and financial dramas of the final years of The Beatles, right up to the present (the book came out in October 2011). This is an extremely well researched Beatles book, and I've read most of them.

Not only does Doggett really understand the facts, but he also has a great sense of and understanding of their music. He mentions in the Acknowledgments that Ram would be his choice as the album to take to the proverbial desert island. Nice choice. I agree that Ram is an overlooked masterpiece. It's the Pet Sounds of the 1970's.

Check out this great book. It's endlessly informative and entertaining.
