Dreaming the Beatles

Veteran Rolling Stone critic Sheffield's exploration of the Beatles' impact across the decades is one of the most original and insightful books ever written about the Fab Four. He's brilliant on everything from George Harrison's disastrous 1974 solo tour to the Bee Gees' Sgt. Pepper's movie. "The world keeps dreaming the Beatles," Sheffield writes, "long after the Beatles themselves figured the dream was over."
