I highly recommend the Hunter Davies book and the Bob Spitz book. My copy of the Davies book is from its original release in paperback and I have not seen the later versions of it noted by DtC. The original is still an excellent book despite having been an authorized bio. I recently read the Geoff Emerick book, specifically on WordMan's recommendation, and I agree that it is well worth reading. It is especially interesting when followed by All You Need Is Ears, by George Martin. I would have to say that Sir George does not come off very well in his own book. He may have great ears for music, but he has a tin ear for his own writing tone.

Any Beatles fanatic will want to read The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions, by Mark Lewisohn. There's some fascinating stuff in there.
