The following content was provided by the publisher.
A fascinating read.
-"Associated Press"

Joshua Greene, who studied meditation with the legendary Beatle George Harrison, draws on personal remembrances, recorded conversations, and firsthand accounts to create a moving portrait of Harrison's spiritual life, his profound contribution to the Beatles' music, and previously unpublished anecdotes about his time with music legends Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, and others.

"Many well-known artists have touched people's hearts with their music, but few have ever succeeded in touching people's souls. That was George's gift, and his story is described here with affection and taste. A wonderful book."
-Mia Farrow

Review by Library Journal (2005-12-01)

Historian and Emmy-nominated writer and filmmaker Greene studied with George Harrison's guru and recorded Hindustani devotional music with the former Beatle at one point in the 1970's. Drawing on those experiences, he attempts an overview of Harrison's life and musical career, but there is an unfortunate focus on his spirituality; readers will not find much on Harrison's music. To his credit, Greene studiously avoids the tabloid like nature of some earlier Harrison biographies (e.g., Geoffrey Giuliano's Dark Horse: The Life and Art of George Harrison). This, however, is a mixed blessing, as the overall biographical material seems fairly general and at times sketchy, except when it comes to Harrison's spiritual path.

The Beatles period in particular could be more detailed. This book, illustrated with 20 pages of black-and-white photographs, will interest Harrison and Beatles fans, but it is neither a definitive guide to Harrison's music nor a truly comprehensive biography. Recommended for larger public libraries with significant popular culture collections.
