The chapter, “The Solo Years,” provides, in the words of the editor, “one of music criticisms most extensive and thorough examinations of the bandmates’ solo output…. Frontani enumerates the artistic highs and lows of the ex-Beatles’ solo careers (and) affords special emphasis to the manner in which the former group members both struggle with and venerate their accomplishments as a musical unit during the 1960s.”

Frontani’s book, "The Beatles: Image and the Media" (University Press of Mississippi, 2007), was selected as a CHOICE “Outstanding Academic Title” for 2008.
