Experiencing the Beatles – A Listener’s Companion, is a different kind of book. Not wanting to rewrite what has already been written on the Beatles, Halpin took a different approach to make his book different from the others by interspersing time-travel vignettes throughout the chapters. In addition to him writing about his Beatles experiences during the 60s, to make it more effective for the reader, Brooke puts “you” instead of him in the time capsules, taking the reader back to the days when the Beatles were top of the pops. He puts you in his shoes when he experienced the Beatles for the first time, when they released their record breaking songs, when they performed live and incited Beatlemania in America, and when their movies were premiered.
