"Fab! Soocher's cast of mobbed-up producers, cut-out shilling managers, and opera-composing judges reads like Elmore Leonard in the Sky with Diamonds."―Steven Lee Beeber, author of The Heebie-Jeebies at CBGB’s: A Secret History of Jewish Punk,
"As mega-successful but legally clueless young men, the Beatles―both as a group and individually―collected more lawsuits than gold records. Stan Soocher, painstakingly and accessibly, sorts it all out in the fascinating, entertaining, and meticulously researched Baby You’re a Rich Man. The book should serve as a cautionary tale for anyone even thinking of entering show business."―Jeff Tamarkin, author of Got a Revolution!: The Turbulent Flight of Jefferson Airplane.
