— From Music!


"Peter Doggett's book about the Beatles' split is a real page-turner." -- Annie Lennox

"Enthralling... Impossible to put down." -- The Independent

Acclaimed journalist Peter Doggett recounts the previously untold story of the dramatic final chapter in the lives, loves, and legal battles of John, Paul, George, and Ringo--aka The Beatles--from their breakup in 1969 to the present day. Called "refreshingly straightforward and highly readable" by The Daily Telegraph (London), You Never Give Me Your Money is the dramatic and intimate story of the breakup and aftermath of The Fab Four as it's never been told before.

Praise For…

“Doggett documents rock’s most agonizing four-way divorce. Rigorously researched, You Never Give Me Your Money is a dark but compelling endnote to rock’s greatest story.”
-Rolling Stone

“I had such a ball reading You Never Give Me Your Money: The Beatles After the Breakup that once I finished, I returned to page one and read it all over again.”

“Elegant and deeply researched...You Never Give Me Your Money posits a nuanced afterlife for the Beatles. [Peter Doggett] has found a new lens (and much new information) through which to consider the band.”
-Los Angeles Times

“Doggett has crafted an authentic and enlightening book full of myth-busting surprises and insight.”
-Library Journal

“Fascinating…Doggett captures the competitive sparks that flew among the four men, especially between Lennon and Paul McCartney, and also the mutual affection that formed the basis of their complicated relationships…A must for Beatles fans and good for more casual pop-music enthusiasts, too.”

“Peter Doggett’s book about the Beatles’ split is a real page-turner.”
-Annie Lennox

“an enthralling new book on [The Beatles]…impossible to put down”
-The Independent

“Doggett, a music journalist, offers refreshingly straightforward and highly readable portraits of the leading players”
-Daily Telegraph (London)

“a gripping account that portrays [The Beatles] as something much more interesting than the airbrushed Gods we’ve recently seen: damaged, eternally bickering men, left punch-drunk by the group’s success”
-The Guardian

“What Doggett has achieved is a laying bare of the darker consequences of enormous fame and wealth. Yes, there is the glory but there’s also the concomitant pressure of how to deal with the myth and the legacy – while trying to keep four very different voices in harmony.”
-Irish Times

“Doggett’s book charts an admirably unstarry-eyed path through the break-up of the band and beyond.”
-Metro London

“[Doggett’s] identification of the forces that drove The Beatles apart and kept them so for the best part of 30 years is not new, but his forensic tenacity and unyielding gaze are.”

“a breathtaking record of uncontrolled fame’s grotesque side-effects”
