It's Bob Spitz. Really, it is. The Beatles told me things about their early lives I hadn't known in 40 years of reading about them. He's an excellent writer and the 900 pages fly by. And he's a welcome correction to the John Lennon hagiography that's taken place since his death.

Davies is good, no doubt. And if the question had been asked a few years ago, he would be the answer. But as others have said, Spitz is far better.
