NON-FICTION

With a scholar's attention to history and a musician's interest in song craft, Gould provides a thrilling account of how four Liverpool kids translated their love of American rock into a body of music unmatched since they ended their careers as Beatles. The book charts their evolution from three-chord sprints to symphonic masterpieces like "A Day in the Life." If you've ever wanted to know why the Beatles' music is great, look no further.
