"Excellent and engrossing... Gould has the two gifts essential to a critic--passionate expertise plus a bulletproof sense of humor--and his descriptions of music are hilariously on target... Yet Gould also possesses that third essential gift: the capacity for awe."

Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Essential... his narrative literally sings itself off of the pages."

The Boston Globe

"In Can't Buy Me Love, freelance writer Jonathan Gould has produced the best book ever written about the Beatles.  An elegant and economical stylist, Gould is a brilliant narrative historian, with an archaeologist's ability to re-create the world inhabited by his subjects.  Can't Buy Me Love is a magical mystery tour that must not be missed."
