    I took my time with this one, because there's a lot to absorb.The older I get, the more I realize that John and Yoko were a little "woo woo" at times. Out there, I guess is the better way to say it. But I firmly believe their hearts were always in the right place, and for that, I will always admire them.I love that this book isn't just about John and Yoko, but that a large portion is given over to all those who had a hand in somehow bringing Imag...

    I usually read dirty old used paperbacks that I get at thrift stores for a dollar, so when I got a free copy of this from goodreads the first thing I noticed was that it's a freaking beautiful book. I was worried as I read this giant immaculate white book that I might have residual grease on my hands from work and soil it. As a coffee table book, its design is great. As a book-book it was quite interesting to get into the heads of John Lennon and...

    Review of: Imagine John Yoko, by John & Yoko Lennonby Stan Prager (2-3-19) It was late and I was on my way home, rock n’ roll blasting on the car radio. It was the one-week anniversary of our very first apartment together as a couple, so there was a kind of glow around the day. Then the music cut off abruptly and the news broke: John Lennon had been shot. John Lennon was dead. When the tunes resumed, it was all Beatles and Lennon solo stuff. On...

    I was completely floored as to how beautiful the book is. It totally worth getting if you are a fan of John Lennon. Not only is it filled with brilliant photos but it gives you story of making Imagine.

    This beautiful coffee table book (seriously, this is not one you can read in bed, it's big and heavy!) gives incredible insight into the time that the album Imagine was being recorded. So many cool photographs, drawings and stories that transport you to those exact moments in time. John and Yoko introduce each song on the album and they share everything about their creative process, the writing, the production ins and outs they used to record, th...

    You learn a lot about John and Yoko in this coffee table book. It's big and heavy. Each page is elegantly designed. The photos are luminously beautiful. It may be a little more than you want to know. Here's the thing I learned about John Lennon that I liked the most. It's that he was very nervous -- he donned a suit -- when he was about to meet Fred Astaire, whom he described as "a real movie star." Right he was. But I'm vegan so I have to say th...

    BEAUTIFUL BOOK -- possibly more than you would ever want to know, but it is worth buying just to slowly flip through the pages when you are on your couch. Take it in in little chunks. It is absolutely beautiful
