Beatleology: A Magical Mystery Tour To Discover Your Inner Beatle.

It looked cute. I plunked down the money.

The result I got wasn’t especially surprising. If you’ve known me long enough, you’ll know where I fall on the Beatle Personality Scale.

What was surprising is that I seem not to have a Minor Beatle Sign; I scored exactly the same for the other three.

I wonder how the book correlates to other personality measures, like the Meyers-Briggs test. Or if it’s just, well, bullshittery.

The book needed a seriously good fact-check, though. Some of the things it says about Beatles history are factually incorrect.
