Born in Liverpool on October 9, 1940 and shot dead in New York on December 8, 1980, John Lennon's life was tragically short and yet remarkably full.

By the time of his death he had achieved an almost unprecedented level of fame, first as one of the Beatles and then as a successful solo artist. The rebellious, angry young man had matured into an uncompromising, outspoken political activist and ambassador for peace.

Through a series of candid photographs from the archives of the Daily Mail and comprehensive captions, this book charts the captivating life-story of the complex and enigmatic personally that was John Lennon.

Despite the contradictions, John Lennon was always scathingly honest and always had faith in his message and his methods. He also believed that on a universal scale, his contribution would be small, but nevertheless, he touched hearts and minds across the world with his art, his words and his music.
