The following content was provided by the publisher.

John Lennon . . . as much a part of our world today as he ever was

He touched many lives in his brief forty years, and continues to move and inspire millions more to this day. Now, invited by Yoko Ono, friends, family, and fans from all walks of life--including some of the great artists of our day--reminisce about Lennon as a visionary and friend, musician and performer, husband and father, activist and jokester.

In their own words and drawings, poems and photos, Lennon's life from his childhood through the Beatles years to the happiness and tragedy of his final days become stunningly vivid.

Intimate glimpses gathered from musicians who knew John, such as Pete Townshend, Sir Elton John, Billy Preston, and Joan Baez; friends and relatives such as producer David Geffen, publicist Elliot Mintz, and cousin Mike Cadwallader; and artists who followed him such as Bono, Alicia Keys, Steve Earle, Jello Biafra, and Carlos Santana.

And, for the first time, renowned photographer Annie Liebovitz presents every frame of the historic last session with John and Yoko.

Memories of John Lennon is a rich and deeply felt appreciation of a truly great man.

Review by Library Journal (2005-11-01)

Ono, a composer and visual and performance artist, has assembled a loving tribute to her late husband, John Lennon, who was killed 25 years ago this December. His personal life, music, and social, political, and musical influences are covered via reminiscences, photographs, drawings, and poems from more than 70 people who knew or were influenced by him. Among the contributors are Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, political activist Tom Hayden, publicist Elliot Mintz, cousin Mike Cadwallader, and producer David Geffen.

Some of the entries are brief, while others are extensive. Of particular interest is photographer Annie Leibovitz's contribution: every single frame from her final session with Lennon and Ono (which includes the famous "fetal" shot). A wonderful book for fans of Lennon and/or the Beatles, this is highly recommended for all large popular music and popular culture collections.
