If you like to unravel the secret of the Beatles. If you are intrigued by their unprecedented fame, by the fact that so many books were written about them, going into the smallest details of their supremacy. If you wonder, why their music has remained fresh after all these years. If you are intrigued by the secret of their music. Then this book is a book for you. Because this book is not about what happened, but about why it happened. Peter Eijgenhuijsen (1958) is a life-long Beatles fan. He attended the Academy of Writing in Antwerp and the Writers School in Amsterdam. He published short stories in literary magazines. Professionally he is a scientific director at a multinational pharmaceutical company, overseeing a group of scientific technical writers.
Another Beatles Book, or a new beginning?
To date more than two thousand books have been published about the Beatles and the steady stream of new books continues. All these books describe the story of the Beatles.
Some superficially others in more detail.
Until now, there has been no book trying to discover the secret of the Beatles. A book trying to explain their off-the scale fame, trying to explain why they were so influential, and why their music, after all these years, still sounds crisp and fresh.
With a historic phenomenon like the Beatles, it is important to describe what happened, in order to document it for future generations.
But when you have done that, and with more than two thousand books we have done more than a thorough job, it is time to start explaining the phenomenon.
The book The Beatles Era, a Quest for the Secret of the Beatles, by the Dutch author Peter Eijgenhuijsen does just that.
