Born 9 October 1940 in Liverpool, John Lennon was a walking, talking, quote machine. Every time he opened his mouth, genius fell out. To celebrate this simple, glorious truth, The Little Book of John Lennon is here to remind you what a legend sounds like.
From his days down in the dumps as a Liverpudlian scamp to his tenure in the world’s greatest beat combo to his post-Beatles bed-ins and living for peace, love and understanding, The Little Book of John Lennon speaks the truth as Lennon himself lived it. Imagine a world with no John Lennon – it’s easy if you try. But, why in the world would you want to? This is John Lennon at his best, and in his own words.
