In defense of "All You Need is Ears":
1) This is George Martin's autobiography. It doesn't purport to be a book ABOUT The Beatles, and it is unfair and foolish to fault it on this account.
2) The Beatles broke up thirty years ago. Get over it. There are no "new Beatles facts" to be had. If you're bored with old recordings and old "Beatles facts" just move on. Pick some other rock group--or something.
3) The subject-verb disagreement in the title is unfortunate, in my opinion, but hardly inexplicable. Someone thought it a selling point to preserve as much of the John Lennon song ("All You Need is Love") it refers to as possible.

This is one of my favorite autobiographies because its author doesn't tell about just himself, he teaches you about orchestration, recording, and the history of the British recording business. (There are some amusing Beatle anecdotes as well. I particularly enjoyed John Lennon's trouble with saxophone notation.) My only quibble: It should called itself "All You Need ARE Ears", not just because verbs must agree with their subjects, but also--mostly--because a title that distances itself from its allusion is more graceful.
Also recommended: PENTATONIC SCALES FOR THE JAZZ-ROCK KEYBOARDIST by Jeff Burns.

This book is highly informative in what it takes to be a record producer, however, I bought the book becaue I was looking for information about his work with the Beatles. That information is not vast, and he rarely includes them in the book. I was hurt to find that on the cover George portrays himself as the "genius behind the Beatles" and shows a picture of himself and the Beatles, yet fails to mention them as he should. If you are looking for information on the recording process this is the book for you, but if you are looking for information about the Beatles I feel you will be disappointed.

For every music lover, its history is part of the pleasure. As we'll enter soon in the 21st Century, one must absolutely read the story of the man who, with The Beatles, changed the second half of the 20th century in helping them composed the most important opus of its time. This is a book about music, about people making music, this is a book about Sir George Martin, a humble man, a musician who was able to recognize that those youngs guys from Liverpool would, with a little help, change the course of music history and rise popular music to a higher livel, equal to the one normally reserved to the so-called "serious music". His life, his love, his work... Our pleasure.
And my greatest honour was to have my personal copy of this book autographed by Sir George Martin himself at EMI Abbey Road Studios in London...

First, let me say that I absolutely love the Beatles and am a huge fan and admirer of George Martin - that's why I bought this book. However, it has been a huge disappointment for me. It manages to take a fascinating subject and make it boring. It didn't really reveal any new Beatles facts and is not very fun at all to read. This story has been told better in a million other places. Also, it's old - the copyright date for this version is 1995 but that's for the paperback version - it really came out in the late 70s. Sorry George, you're great, but this book was a big letdown.
P.S. What's with the terrible grammar in the title? Who came up with that?

This is a blandly written book, that should have more of the Beatles in it. And Martin is so full of himself, John Lennon was right when he complained that those who worked WITH the Beatles thought they WERE the Beatles. And Martin basically makes that claim when he says, "John and Paul were the big talents in the Beatles. George, Ringo and I were also-rans." To include himself as being as important as George and Ringo in the Beatles' success shows nauseating conceit. LET IT BE is a great Beatles album, and Martin had NOTHING to do with its production. The Beatles might have been successful without George or Ringo, but I doubt they would have been enduring phenomenons. But I can still see them having been phenomenons without Martin.
