If you are either a Beatles or John Lennon fan, John M. Borack’s biography John Lennon:  Life Is What Happens is a definite must read for you.  Within its 256 pages, you will read musicians and fans’ stories and reflections.  Call John Lennon a renaissance man as you come to better know the singer, songwriter, artist, social activist, husband, and father.

This chronological tale from Lennon’s boyhood in the 40’s to his death in 1980’s shows his beginnings, Beatlemania, the Plastic Ono Band, to his murder at the Dakota.  Printed interviews and television appearances are cited in a softcover volume that includes 400 pieces of artwork, photographs, and memorabilia.  Life Is What Happens makes for an excellent coffee table book  to be thumbed through, read casually, and appreciated again and again.  Its music and  memories make it a definitive reference work as well.

Author John Borack says that John Lennon packed a lot of life into his 40 years, and he poured his whole heart and soul into everything he did.  He has been dead 30 years now.  I remember the 60’s and the British Invasion.  Do you?  This book shows one perspective on fame and greatness.  Paul McCartney appreciated it so much that he commissioned  Borack to pen one on his life and times.

John Lennon:  Life Is What Happens is available at major bookstores everywhere.  Its list is $26.99.
