All the animals try cheering up an angry tortoise, but they’re not going about it the right way (smelly old boots don’t help me either). A silly story that’s a lesson in empathy and handling negative emotions.

Actor, philanthropist, husband, father, race car driver, film director, superstar Paul Newman (1925 –2008), was a conflicted man, who with self-deprecating humor, extraordinary good looks and abundant talent became one of the most iconic movie stars of the past 75 years.

I try to choose staff picks of general interest, and I will freely admit that this book probably isn't - it is for readers who love the Beatles. You don't have to be a fanatic (I'm not), but if you love Let It Be (I do) then this book is not only appealing but probably mandatory. At a literal level, it is a textual and photographic transcript of the studio sessions preparing for their last concert, with the songs that became that album (and much of Abbey Road); but writ large it is really a narrative of the last phase of the band. They are talking, joking, playing, creating, arguing, reminiscing - far more than the story of a break-up, it is an exploration of a phenomenon. And the photos are magnificent.
