The classic memoir with a new foreword by Jon SavageDerek Taylor's iconic memoir is a rare opportunity to be immersed in one of the most whirlwind music sensations in history: Beatlemania. The reissue of the book has come together with the help and guidance of Jon Savage, Vanessa Taylor (Derek's daughter) and Jonathan Clyde, the head of Apple Records. It's been out of print for 35 years and is considered the first piece of classic writing on The Beatles.As Time Goes By tells the remarkable story of Taylor's trajectory from humble provincial journalist to loved confidant right at the center of the Beatles' magic circle. In charming, conversational prose, Taylor shares anecdotes and reminiscences so vivid and immediate that you find yourself plunged into the beating heart of 1960s counterculture. Whether watching the debut performance of "Hey Jude" in a country pub or hearing first-hand gossip about a star-studded cast of characters, Taylor's unique narrative voice forges an autobiography like no other. Reissued here in a brand new edition with a foreword by celebrated writer Jon Savage, this long-admired memoir is a cult classic of the genre awaiting a new readership. The Beatles are supporting publication on their social media accounts, as Derek is seen as one of the integral parts of The Beatles puzzle. He served as both their PR and PR for Apple Records.
Derek Taylor was an English journalist, writer, publicist and record producer. He is best known for his role as press officer to the Beatles, for whom he became one of several associates to earn the moniker 'the Fifth Beatle'.
'The sharpest memoir written by one of the Beatles' inner circle.' Observer

Jews make up 0.2% of the worlds' population, yet they have won over 20% of the Nobel prizes. When one considers that Jews weren't even admitted to the University in Britain until the 1820s, and were on a quota at some American Ivy League colleges until after the Second World War, their successes are truly remarkable. What is the reason for this disparity? Derek Taylor provides biographical...

For 800 years, Magna Carta has inspired those prepared to face torture, imprisonment and even death in the fight against tyranny. Back in 1215, when King John was forced to issue Magna Carta, it was regarded as little more than a stalling tactic in the bloody conflict between monarch and barons.
British Chief Rabbis tells how they achieved what, in retrospect, seems almost the impossible. The survival of the Jewish Community in Britain in the last 350 years as an Orthodox body has been an extraordinary story of success against all odds. Most of the credit goes to 22 men who acted as the spiritual leaders of this community.
