If you are a Beatles fan, here’s the book for you

Rob Sheffield's 'Dreaming The Beatles', published last year to wide acclaim, proved beyond doubt that the last word on the fabulous four is far from written

Does the world need another book on The Beatles? Even diehard fans will pause at the thought, but Rob Sheffield’s Dreaming The Beatles, published last year to wide acclaim, proved beyond doubt that the last word on the fabulous four is far from written.

The book, structured around a cluster of thematic essays, shines for its wry humour, even when it speaks of moments of high tragedy in the turbulent lives of the boys from Liverpool.

But best of all, Sheffield is interested in understanding the enduring appeal of the band not just during their active years but more so after they had broken up. It’s his analysis of the persistence of The Beatles in the music of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and into the 21st century, that makes the book so gripping and replete with fresh insights.
