"The book has Russell and McCartney photos, text from Peter Jackson and Hanif Kureishi, but best of all, verbatim transcripts from the sessions, which read on the page almost like Samuel Beckett dialogue." —Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

"It's remarkable how much of Get Back reads like it could be adaptable into an off-Broadway play, full of dark comedy and rich insight about what can and can't emerge out of ego and compromise among longtime partners approaching a crossroads." —Chris Wilman, Variety

The Get Back book is curiously fascinating, even (especially?) at its most mundane, like a full page of the band debating their lunch orders." —Alan Light, Vanity Fair

"Get Back will prove to be thoroughly absorbing for most Beatles followers, since it does loosely tell a story — not to mention the fact that John Lennon and Paul McCartney are just damned funny fellows, left to their own jocular devices as unwitting dialogue writers." —Chris Wilman, Variety

"Most of all, they found joy in the music again, something they’d been missing for a while. Despite how the story is often told, the songs of Let It Be weren’t about a band falling apart, but a group of old friends discovering that they still liked making music together." —Eric Spitznagel, New York Post

"Lavishly illustrated with photos and film stills, this ultra-specialized volume from editor Harris transcribes the studio banter among the Beatles in January 1969 as they created the Let It Be album and the Get Back documentary." —David P. Szatmary, Library Journal

"So there is tension and conflict in these transcripts, but there is also a lot of love. That balance is what might make the book The Beatles: Get Back the ultimate document of the Get Back sessions" —Mike Segretto, Psychobabble

"The book, beautifully produced by Callaway, is nothing like the rushed job that accompanied Let It Be." —Michael Lindsay-Hogg, Air Mail

"It would be fair to say that today Let it Be symbolizes the breaking-up of The Beatles. That’s the mythology, the truth is somewhat different. The real story of Let It Be has been locked in the vaults of Apple Corps for the last 50 years." —Peter Jackson


About the Author

THE BEATLES are the bestselling music act of all time. Between 1962 and 1970 John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr released thirteen albums as a band, made five films together, and topped the charts all over the world. Until 1966 they toured the world to unprecedented mass acclaim, inspiring the phenomenon of Beatlemania. Their creativity stretched the possibilities of popular music and ― working with their producer George Martin ― they revolutionized studio recording processes. They had an unrivalled impact on the music industry, fashion, popular culture and society in the 1960s and beyond, and their influence persists today.

PETER JACKSON is an Academy Award winning director, producer and screenwriter. His films include The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies as well as the BAFTA nominated World War One documentary They Shall Not Grow Old.
