Read full description of the books Complete Beatles Recording Sessions:Still my favorite Beatles book. If you want the Beatles as a story, then Shout! will do very well. I tend to like the oral history approach--Anthology is great but unwieldy, so I prefer Beatles Off the Record, however unreliable. For pictures and side issues, Mojo magazine did a great Beatles book published by DK. And then there's Yesterday: The Beatles Once Upon a Time, featuring fantastic and fun early pictures of the Beatles and Liverpool by Astrid Kirchherr and Max Scheler.
This book, however, concentrates on the music to an obsessive degree, which so do I. I think you get a fantastic sense of the creativity and vitality (and humanity) of the Beatles by seeing how the records get made, how they worked with the engineers and other musicians, how they got along and didn't, and all the minutiae. I could wish that sometimes who plays what when was better delineated (Paul played a number of the best guitar solos), but I'm obsessive, as I mentioned. Just the story of the invention of "flanging" makes me happy.
