    "Beatles were a very special group and its instrument players are no exception. A different perspective from one of band guitarist George Harrison sheds a totally new light and aspect on how the music and lyrics were developed and formed. The tone of narrating is very fun to read and promotes humors. Developing a story by incorporating elements from the background characters adds to the diverse nature of its amusement. If you would like to get a more expanded insight into the world of Beatles, the I, Me, Mine is a recommended book"

    "I don't get why this isn't number one. I mean, its The Beatles story in their own words. Sure, its biased in a sense that the present themselves in the best light possible (and of course, having John Lennon quotes taken out of context from varying interviews he gave over the years is a bit suspect), but nevertheless, the book has a wealth of knowledge from those who were there to see the rise and fall of the best band in the world. Also, the photos are awesome, and its something most other books lack as I guess they don't have the copyright for using this pics. So, if you're a true Beatles fan, read the anthology, and of course get the accompanying CDs which are even better."

    "This book provides the most comprehensive guide and analysis of the religious aspects of the Beatles, and if you don't already have a grasp on how important that aspect was to the them, you will after you read this. It's not a book that has some sharp new outlook, it's just the best at what it does by far."

    "An enjoyable read, but runs a bit long. Also, it feels a bit biased. I know she can't be totally detached, but there were parts where it felt like history was being twisted a little."

    "So this was a humorous book and I never thought I'd see John Lennon like that. But this book was fun and a good laugh all around. Even though it's not accurate, it's still a good depiction of Lennon in his prime. I could go for another round of this and hopefully I will see another installment. "
