About the Author

KENNETH WOMACK'S books include Long and Winding Roads, The Cambridge Companion to the Beatles, The Beatles Encyclopedia, and New Critical Perspectiveson the Beatles.

"An authoritative account of pop-music history and the man who helped shape it." --Kirkus Reviews
"They seemed an unlikely partnership--the Beatles, who knew everything about rock and roll music, and their classically trained producer George Martin, who knew very little. But as Kenneth Womack uncovers in this engrossing and forensically detailed biography, the recording studio became a 'magic workshop' and George Martin a musical wizard when it came to the Beatles' songs. A fascinating read." --Ray Connolly, author of Being Elvis
"George Martin transformed the role of 'producer' as much as the Beatles transformed our idea of a 'band, ' so Kenneth Womack's engaging account of Martin's life fills a major hole on pop music's shelf. For a rich, illuminating understanding of how the Beatles catalog transcends song, performance, and arrangement, jump through this hogshead of real fire: tonight, George Martin tops the bill." --Tim Riley, author of Tell Me Why and Lennon: Man, Myth, Music
"A marvelous magical mystery tour behind the wizard's curtain--one that leaves us with a deep understanding of one of the key architects of pop culture. Essential reading for anyone who's ever had a soundtrack to their dreams." --Vivek J. Tiwary, author of The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story
"The book contains enough fresh information and informed insight about the group's early years to satisfy the most devout Beatlemaniac."--ForeWord Reviews
"Maximum Volume...provides close inspection of George Martin's immense contributions to not just the Beatles' popularity, but to pop music evolution in particular, and is a highly recommended title for any definitive Beatles reader."--Midwest Book Review

"This is an excellent book and one that needed to be written. I will be reading the next volume because I am excited to learn more about George Martin's accomplishments."--Meet the Beatles for Real
