The Best Beatles Book. Period.

What person, place or thing has had more words written about it in the past half-century?

The simple answer: The Beatles, together and alone, with more words by far than even Jesus Christ, if you’ll excuse the blasphemy.

(And please, no protests or book-burning. It’s a verifiable fact.)

So what is the best book ever written about The Beatles? The answer is not very surprising.

The best-selling book ever written about The Beatles is also what we consider to be the best book ever written about The Beatles – “The Beatles Anthology,” which was published in 2000 to coincide with a documentary television series of the same name.

The book was created by former Beatles Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, along with the widow of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and is an extensive retrospective of the band’s career, featuring photographs, personal recollections, and commentary from the band members themselves.

“The Beatles Anthology” spent several weeks at the top of the New York Times Best Seller list (despite a middling review in the Times’ own book section) and sold millions of copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling music books of all time. The book was praised for its comprehensive look at the band’s history, as well as its inclusion of rare and previously unseen photographs and memorabilia.

The book was also accompanied by a six-disc CD and video set, which included previously unreleased recordings, live performances, and interviews.

The combination of the book and multimedia set made “The Beatles Anthology” an essential purchase for fans of the band and a definitive work on their legacy.
