Product Overview

"An enthralling new book on [the Beatles]...impossible to put down."---The Independent

From Tragedy to Triumphant Reunion, Court Battles to Chart Success, You Never Give Me Your Money Traces the Untold Story of a Group And A Legacy That Will Never be Forgotten.

"A gripping account that portrays [the Beatles] as something much more interesting than the airbrushed gods we've recently seen: damaged, eternally bickering men, left punch-drunk by the group's success."---The Guardian

"What Doggett has achieved is a laying bare of the darker consequences of enormous fame and wealth. Yes, there is the glory but there's also the concomitant pressure of how to deal with the myth and the legacy-while trying to keep four very different voices in harmony."---Irish Times

"Doggett, a music journalist, offers refreshingly straightforward and highly readable portraits of the leading players."---Daily Telegraph (London)

"You mustn't pretend that brothers don't fight, because they fight worse than anybody."---Ringo Starr

The world stopped in 1970 when Paul'McCartney announced that he was through with the Beatles. His statement not only marked the end of the band's remarkable career, but also seemed to signal the demise of an era of unprecedented optimism in social history. Though the Beatles' breakup was widely viewed as a cultural tragedy, one of the most fascinating phases of their story was just about to begin.

Now, for the first time, You Never Give Me Your Money tells the behind the scenes story of the personal rivalries and legal feuds that have dominated the Beatles' lives since 1969. Journalist Peter Doggett charts the Shakespearean battles between Lennon and McCartney, the conflictin George Harrison's life between spirituality and fame, and the struggle with alcoholism that threatened to take Richard Starkey's life. In vivid detail, Doggett also describes the wild mismanagement of the Beatles' fortune staked largely in Apple Corps.

You Never Give Me Your Money is a compelling human drama and an equally rich and absorbing story of the Beatles' creative and financial empire, set up to safeguard their interests but destined to control their lives. From tragedy to triumphant reunion, and chart successto courtroom battles, this meticulously researched work tells the previously untold story of a group and a legacy that will never be forgotten.
