All These Years, The Beatles Volume One: Tune In by Mark Lewisohn;

The world's only Beatles historian has poured a decade of research into another 'definitive' book about the world's biggest band (he's written six other books on the subject already). Weighing in at a hefty 946 pages, and five cm thick, it only covers the early years of the Fab Four's lives, before they became famous; from birth to becoming involved in the Skiffle craze and forming their first band, the Quarry Men, up until 1962 when Brian Epstein began managing them and they signed a record deal.
