Ten top books about The Beatles

Philip Norman is the author of Paul McCartney: The Life.

One of his top ten books about The Beatles, as shared at the Guardian:
Magical Mystery Tours: My Life With the Beatles by Tony Bramwell

Bramwell was one of the many babies delivered by Paul’s midwife mother, Mary; his house was on George’s round as a butcher’s delivery boy. As the Beatles grew more famous on Merseyside, long before they had roadies, he’d carry their guitars into gigs, becoming so ubiquitous that John nicknamed him “Measles”. His rollicking autobiography describes how he worked for Brian Epstein’s NEMS company, became an indispensable aide to Paul in particular – witness to the very moment that he fell in love with Linda – and later successively head of Apple Films and Apple Records.
