    The Beach Boys: The Definitive Diary of America's Greatest Band on Stage and in the Studio by Keith Badman (JustinTheLibrarian)
    JustinTheLibrarian: This title does what "The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions" by Mark Lewisohn did for fans of Beatles history for fans of Beach Boys/Brian Wilson history. Not quite as complete as Lewisohn's book, but an interesting read.
