Martin Goldsmith: "The Beatles Come To America" (Wiley)
In February 1964, American pop culture was forever changed. For two weeks, the Beatles invaded the U.S., playing three concerts and appearing twice on the Ed Sullivan Show. Martin Goldsmith recreates the excitement of the Beatle's first visit and explains how the lads from Liverpool came together to capture America's heart.
