    Tracked down from friends of the band,
    collectors, museums and universities, and
    now reproduced in one volume, these
    handwritten manuscripts of the lyrics to
    100 of the Beatles’ 182 songs give a unique
    insight into the creative process of these great
    songwriters. These documents are now worth
    a lot of money – in 2010, Lennon’s original
    handwritten lyric to ‘A Day in the Life’ was
    auctioned at Sotheby’s for an extraordinary
    US$1.2 million. Davies had unrivalled access
    to the Beatles during their heyday and here
    he reveals each song’s context through vivid
    behind-the-scenes stories.
