Beatles Song Book

With Beatlemania sweeping the nation again, well kind of, they have been in heavy rotation in my house. So this has me thinking about the lyrics again. I'm looking for a book that explains the songs. I know several exist and came across this on Amazon: A Hard Day's Write, 3e: The Stories Behind Every Beatles Song by Steve Turner. Has anybody read this? Are there others that may be considered more definitive? Thanks.

Re: Beatles Song Book

Robert Baird mentioned A Hard Day's Write and several other Beatles-related books in his October issue "Aural Robert."

Cool! If you can figure out what "Sie Liebt Dich" is about, let me know!

I always found the two songs eerily similar.

But, I am asking about a book explaining the lyrics. This book seems to be about the equipment used to make the recordings. Thanks anyway.
