The first and best Beatles biography, Norman had close working relationships with each of the Fab Four, having interviewed them many times since 1965 and observed first hand the events that led to the split during 1969-70. The resulting book contained unique insights into the rise of the Beatles, their final years, the chaos of Apple and the collapse of hippy idealism. Written with all of Norman`s trademark verve and skill, this is an essential book for anyone with an interest in pop music, the Sixties and the pleasures and perils of god-like fame. Shout! became a bestselling book and received a favorable reception for its content, including its coverage of the Beatles Hamburg era, although detractors have bemoaned its negative tone and in his review of the book in The Rough Guide to the Beatles (2006), Chris Ingham writes that Norman displays a clear dislike for McCartney yet Shout! merits the praise it has received, due to the rigor of its research and insightful reflection of the times.
Nothing less than thrilling… the definitive biography – New York Times
