Mounted as an attractive coffee-table piece, Du Noyer’s book is an engaging analysis of Lennon as an ex-Beatle, a period when his songwriting became more deeply personal, overtly political and confrontational than ever before. The detail presented by this collection––including track by track personnel who played on each recording—is most welcome. And the photos are fresh and interesting. Die-hard Beatles fan will relish this one.
