The photographs are amazing and Paul's narrative takes the reader along on truly a mystical, magical, tour. this book is great, but rare - i went to this location in india and just had to have the book.

The visit followed the group's denunciation of drugs in favour of TM and received widespread media attention.

One of the most memorable things Saltzman absorbed during his conversations and life-changing stay with The Beatles was George Harrison's words: "Like we're The Beatles, after all, aren't we? We have all the money you could ever dream.

Beatles in Rishikesh book. During this time they wrote most of the songs that were later to become the White Album. No professional photographers were allowed inside the Ashram but the group had no objections to Saltzman freely snapping pictures during their time together.

We speak to Paul Saltzman about his time spent in India with The Beatles. His photographs have been judged ‘some of the best intimate shots’ ever taken of John, Paul, George and Ringo.

A photo essay celebrating the Beatles' love affair with Indian culture and music records key events in this ongoing fascination, from their meeting with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to visits to the ashram by Mia Farrow, Donovan, and other celebrities. 17,500 first printing.
  • First of all, this is a visually beautiful book. The typsetting (which is large and, unusually, centered throughout), the gorgeous photographs, the colours, it's all very lush and evocative. Great coffee table book!

    That being said, the story is very engaging and creates a charming and compelling snapshot of a brief but heady time in an engaging era. The intimate portraits of the Beatles, both photographic and in writing, are sure to please Beatles fans and maybe the casually curious, as well.

    Unfortunately, the story is fairly short. More of an essay than anything else, but given the story being told, it could only be so long. The author writes about a specific time and place and doesn't pad it with a lot of extraneous things, and it is what it is.

    This is a book that's sure to delight Beatles fans and also those who are interested in the times, trends, and mood of the mid-late sixties. I found the book captivating, and I'm glad to add it to my collection of great coffee table books and books about the Beatles.

  • I went to Rishikesh, India in the fall of 2000. I realized why George was so amazed of this northern India town where the Ganges turns down from The Himalayan Mtns. I was blessed to have visited such a beautiful place, as my 94 year old grandfather from Delhi and my dad (Who's originally from northern India) took me to some amazing spots in Rishikesh. I felt so free. I felt the 'magic' The Beatles experienced. This book illustrates the journey of the fab four's 1967-68 visit for 'relaxation & meditation' and the outcome (Many of the songs recorded for "The White Album" were written while hanging and meditating at Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram) The pictures (taken by the author of this book) are large and will grab you - This book is for The Beatle fan in you or someone you know.

  • Visually, this book is a treat. Thick pages similar to the recently released Anthology, great graphics and font. The photographs of the Beatles, who are relaxed and acting like themselves are intriguing. I was disappointed, however, that I sat down and read this book in its entirety in a little over an hour. While Mr. Saltzman's casual chats with the Beatles are interesting there's no great revelations here that many fans won't already know. The photos are good but are pretty repetitious, most of them having been taken in about three different sessions. This book makes a great "coffee table" book and a good conversation starter but don't buy it expecting to learn anything new - it's just not there.

  • Paul Saltzman shares what led him to go to India and how he came to meet the Beatles in Rishikesh. The photographs are amazing and Paul's narrative takes the reader along on truly a mystical, magical, tour. I'm delighted to add this book to my library.

  • this book is great, but rare - i went to this location in india and just had to have the book.

  • Great book ! With bold type . A must for a beatles fan with great pics . Item was as described 5 stars

  • A-OK!

  • The photographs in this book are truly a treat for any Beatle afficionado as well as anyone who comes across this book.
    Although there is little in the way of fresh factual material, the pictures, text and recreating the 1967-1968 period in the Beatles' career is sure to delight any reader.
    I like the way the author describes the sitar, an Indian stringed musical instrument that Ravi Shankar and George Harrison popularized in Western music. This book shows the cultural blending, the introduction to the western world at large a musical instrument that was, for many years, not well known outside of the middle east. George, under Shankar's tutelage masters the sitar and the Eastern influence can be heard in many of his later works as well as post-Beatles works.
    John Lennon, of late 1965 "Norwegian Wood" fame is not as entranced with the eastern world and eastern philosophy as his bandmate. John, from all accounts, keeps an open mind, yet maintains his own established values and beliefs. His approach to the Eastern experience appears to be that of an intellectual curiosity; he does not appear to embrace it on a personal or philosophical level. He seems to remain outside, yet looking in with the idea of learning more about what he is witnessing.
    I think most Beatles fans will appreciate the book. It does a rather thorough job of covering the Beatles' 1967 trip to India and the influences their trip east had on them for the remainder of their careers together as a band. It is, in some ways a refreshing peek behind the Eastern curtain into a part of their lives that many other works do not cover as fully.
