An all-embracing look at Yoko Ono’s life and work, in stunning detail. This 558-page book is for anyone who is interested in learning about this extraordinary woman whom John Lennon loved. The incredible love story of John and Yoko is also explored in depth, along with her relationship to The Beatles.
If you have been misinformed, you will learn the truth. We visit Yoko’s inner and outer worlds. Her meanings and intent will come to light. You will be touched by her wit and wisdom, her genius and whimsy.
Yoko Ono’s enchanting philosophy and uplifting positivity are irresistible. She breaks down the boundaries between art and life. No other artist cares about us so much. Yoko shows us the truth – with sincerity, grace and humor. She enlightens us to our own superpowers.
Yoko’s work is unfinished – to be completed in your mind.
