5.0 étoiles sur 5 En parfait état, mais en anglais! 21 mai 2012
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
En parfait état, le livre est comme neuf. Il aurait été intéressant de préciser sur l'annonce que le livre était en anglais, sachant que nous sommes sur le site Amazon France. Dans mon cas je parle suffisemment anglais pour que ça ne soit pas une gêne, mais cela aurait pu être une cause de réexpédition

"I want to tell you, my head is filled with things to say." -- George Harrison, 1966

This is without a doubt the most beautiful and longest awaited biography of George Harrison to date!

As soon as this book became available, I ordered it immediately if not even sooner. I loved the previously unpublished photographs, such as that of 2-year-old George in the arms of his sister, Louise, then nearly 14. I had to smile at tween George sunning himself with family friends, father Harold Sr. and brother Peter, in or about 1954. I especially loved the picture of Louise and Harold Sr. at a dance in the late 1940s, a loving couple who literally welcomed George with love.

It was such a treat to read about various Harrison family members. It is plain and has been well documented that George was not only created by love, but was literally born into love. From 1965-1969, Louise Harrison lent her voice to a column in a newsletter in a fan club newsletter honoring her son.

Postcards George had written various friends and family members; sketches from his school workbooks all paint young George Harrison into sharper focus. As a bonus treat, readers enjoy the inclusion of quotes by various family members, such as George's sisters-in-law, brothers, fellow Beatles and sundry friends.

I have long thought George and Paul were the most interesting of the Beatles. George's love for Eastern music and his life-long bond with Ravi Shankar, whom he met in 1965 is beautifully chronicled in this book. George's home Friar Park is included, from its "evolution" to its finished state, metaphoric in that it parallels George's "evolution" to that of gardener, a passion he inherited from both Harold Sr. and Louise.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must have for anyone interested in George or The Beatles 28 septembre 2011
Par Frank C. Branchini - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This is the companion book to the Martin Scorsese documentary. Olivia Harrison has been very generous in putting together this lavish book. She has provided a huge number of personal photos of George in non-public settings: very early Harrison family photos, from his 1963 trip to the US, at Friar Park, in India. There are early photos from The Cavern and The Star Club and from Australia. There are copies of correspondence including a wonderful letter from John Lennon to Mrs. Harrison from Hamburg. It is a coffee table sized book that runs to nearly 400 pages. Everything is beautifully presented. This is a real treasure. The photos are stunning and thre are very few that have been seen before. This is an essential book for George fans and Beatle fans. It is amazing tha 48 years after the start of British Beatlemania that we could have this wealth of previously unseen, high quality material. Olivia Harrison has my heartfelt appreciation for sharing this with the fans. This is a real labor of love. Hundreds and hundreds of books have been published about The Beatles. This is one of the very best. Very highly recommended.

I have long thought George and Paul were the most interesting of the Beatles. George's love for Eastern music and his life-long bond with Ravi Shankar, whom he met in 1965 is beautifully chronicled in this book. George's home Friar Park is included, from its "evolution" to its finished state, metaphoric in that it parallels George's "evolution" to that of gardener, a passion he inherited from both Harold Sr. and Louise.

You've just got to love seeing George, then 12 astride a motorcycle labeled "43" (as in 1943, perhaps), a future Formula One enthusiast. The then-future Beatle would follow his love for "things fast," as he would later sing in his 1979 gem, "Faster." In 1963, George, then 20 had a blast go-karting with his fellow Beatles, no doubt wishing his go-kart could be driven a tad faster. George, artist extraordinare, humble gardener, author, father, husband, son, brother, uncle, complex iconic figure remained a boy at heart.

One thing I've long wanted to explore was George's Catholic roots. Louise French Harrison was Catholic and had George baptized when he was 1 month old. George's Catholic roots remained with him for his entire life. He had a beautiful statue of Blessed Mother Mary on the grounds of Friar Park. While George explored Eastern religion and philosophy, he recognized that the precepts of all faiths are very similar.

I will add that George Harrison has given the gift of his beautiful voice to many. A child with Asperger's, which is a form of autism who was a HUGE Beatles fan (George was this child's favorite) was a late talker. Upon acquiring speech, this child would let George "talk" for her, using quotes from George's songs and lines he uttered in Beatle movies to express herself. Over time, this evolved into her developing her own voice, so to speak. George Harrison's music and his natural, yet childlike grace of sorts reached countless many. He has a large following of fans with autism, as do the Beatles as a group. Beatle fans with autism is a demographic that is not rare as one might otherwise think.

This book is such a Godsend and I CAN'T WAIT for the dvd. Olivia Arias Harrison, a beautiful, gracious lady has given the world a gift that will continue to give. To make a good thing even better, she has included her input, which made this a much more effective body of work. I can never thank her enough.

This book is a MUST HAVE for all George Harrison fans. Again, this book is a gift that will keep on giving.

You will also want to read Before He Was Fab : George Harrison's First American Visit, which was co-authored by George's sister, Louise.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding... but flawed 1 octobre 2011
Par Richard Buskin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
A magnificent book, full of absolutely incredible photos that were never intended for public consumption. Kudos to Olivia Harrison for doing this - it has to be one of THE major Beatles-related books alongside their own 'Anthology' and Mark Lewisohn's body of work on the group, including his forthcoming multi-volume bio. That having been said, 'Living in the Material World' is not without its flaws: many of the captions are weak - yes, the photos largely speak for themselves, but with expert input there could have been more precise dating and, in certain cases, useful observations and background info. (Just one of many examples is a terrific 1963 side-on stage shot of the band that includes the back of someone watching quietly from the wings. What many readers possibly won't realize, and what makes this photo all the more significant, is that the man is their devoted road manager Neil Aspinall who would later run their company, Apple. It would have been worthwhile pointing this out, along with numerous other helpful tidbits.) Also, conspicuous by her omission is George's first wife Pattie, who was by his side during the most eventful decade of his life. The one group photo in which she does appear has her listed as Pattie Boyd at a time when she was Pattie Harrison. That, however, is it as far as she's concerned. Even a close-up portrait of George at their Kinfauns home that was almost certainly taken by Pattie is credited only to the "Harrison family." Her absence cannot have been a mere oversight; more likely, it speaks to bad blood between the two wives, which is unfortunate since it results in a major aspect of George's life being excluded from this otherwise comprehensive, beautifully produced and truly outstanding book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fitting Tribute To The Quiet Beatle 28 septembre 2011
Par Mitchell Cassman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Drawing on George Harrison's personal archive of photographs, letters, diaries, and memorabilia, Olivia Harrison reveals the story of his life, from his guitar-obsessed boyhood in Liverpool, to the astonishment of the Beatles years, to his days as an independent musician and bohemian squire. Here too is the record of Harrison's lifelong commitment to Indian music, and his adventures as a movie producer, Traveling Wilbury, and Formula One racing fan. The book is filled with stories and reminiscences from Harrison's friends, including Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and many, many others. Among its previously unpublished riches are photographs taken by Harrison himself beginning in the mid-1960s. It is a rich tribute to a man who died far too young, but who touched the lives of millions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You'll Savor This Book 28 septembre 2011
Par konacoffee - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have not been able to get through the whole book, but I had to write this up. It is a beautiful book. Dittos to what the other reviewer wrote. Besides the interviews and anecdotes you have gorgeous photos. From the first, a photo of Liverpool during WWII, you'll really be drawn in. The photos are wonderful. The book is larger than I thought it would be. There is a photo of a postcard sent from George to his home, and a letter from John Lennon to George's home as well, written in his early comic style, "so to Speke." At the bottom are some of his bizarre drawings of armless people. School pics and early ones at home are ones I've never seen, it is said that these are unpublished items and you can believe it. George was always my fave Beatle and I am so pleased I pre-ordered this book, and I'm not even finished with it! Any Beatles fan, hardcore or casual, will enjoy this. Music fans in general too. This is a book that will go on that one shelf upstairs with other well-done and collectible items.
