The Beatles ruled the musical world for much of the Sixties thanks to the inspired management of Brian Epstein, who found a rough-and-ready group playing small clubs in and around Liverpool. Within five years he developed them into the group chosen to represent the United Kingdom in the first ever satellite broadcast to the world!

This book is an affectionate and penetrating retelling of that amazing story, laced with a huge amount of material never previously released. For the time ever, this book tells the true and incredible story of Seltaeb, the company set up to sell Beatles merchandise around the world. As a result of dreadful errors, caused by stupidity and arrogance, the deal which set up Seltaeb cost the Beatles untold millions during the decade.

And those mistakes and those lost millions led directly to the problems and conflicts which caused the break-up of the Beatles at the end of the decade. And along that painful road came the alleged death of Paul McCartney in November 1966 and the mysterious death of Brian Epstein in August 1967.........

A tragic death, a brutal murder, various human cockroaches and The Beatles - "For No One". The story of the Beatles rise to super-stardom and their descent into a petty squabbling break-up, and a decline highlighted by tragic death and squalid murder and a host of unanswered questions.Interviews with people directly involved in the Seltaeb debacle, which was the source of many of the problems, illustrates how completely the established texts have got the story wrong. It all comes down to money, and it is a sad, squalid but at times glorious story, particularly poignant before February 9th 2014 is the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' historic appearance on the Ed Sullivan show.
