I have the original printing of the book. It's pretty good, and it gives a nice insight into the insane inner workings and non-workings of Apple.

I have "Apple To The Core", an out of print book that sounds like the same thing. It is about the rise and fall of Apple, with brief and concise Beatle history/elements.
I will look for "cocktail party" as well.

Here are links to two books about Friar Park that every fan of the great building and George Harrison should have in their collection.

I have a battered copy of the original. It's like a Timex watch. It took a licking and kept on ticking!
