Drawing on George Harrison's personal archive of photographs, letters, diaries, and memorabilia, Olivia Harrison reveals the arc of his life, from his guitar-obsessed boyhood in Liverpool, to the astonishment of the Beatles years, to his days as an independent musician and bohemian squire. Here too is the record of Harrison's lifelong commitment to Indian music, and his adventures as a movie producer, Travelling Wilbury, and Formula One racing fan. This book is filled with stories and reminiscences from Harrison's friends, including Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idol, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and many, many others. Among its previously unpublished riches are photographs by Harrison himself beginning in the mid-1960s. It is a rich tribute to a man who died far too young, but who touched the lives of millions.

Lots of interesting home photos of the Beatles. George's contribution to the Beatles was always under estimated. Interesting to read about his home life and bond with his sister.

Beautiful book, beautiful life. Fascinating photos of the very early days of the Beatles. Hadn't realized how much they were children of the Blitz. Liverpool was bombed like mad during WW2, and George and the boys grew up using bombsites as their neighbourhood playgrounds.
