As a younger Beatles fan who never saw them I read this book years ago, and it was my introduction to Beatlemania .... nothing has changed over the years, if you want to understand what it was all about, this is the book to get.

Brilliantly written and read ... the true history!

Being a hopelessly one eyed Kelly sympathiser I enjoyed this book immensely. It gives a balanced account based on the facts but also draws some assumptions and attempts to add colour where possible. It does not paint Ned as a saint but rather as the extraordinary enigma that he was, a man whose actions on numerous occasions contradict the behaviour associated with a supposedly viscous killer. Ian Jones is without a doubt the world authority on Ned Kelly and his book reflects the years of research and analysis involved in his quest to find the truth. I thought I knew a lot about our most infamous Australian but was astounded at the number of trivial facts I was unaware of ... they help to bring the whole saga of the Kelly Outbreak back to life and fan the fires of rage that I felt as a kid when I first became a Kelly-aholic.
