When Brian Epstein set foot in the Cavern Club in November 1961 to watch The Beatles perform, he saw something no one else could – a glimmer of gold. Sharply dressed and well-spoken, Brian was hardly the most obvious radical – but being Jewish, closeted and having grown up as an outsider who had failed at pretty much everything, he was a 26-year old with something to prove and who wanted to tear up the rulebook.

Midas Man is the emotional, heartfelt and often funny story of how Epstein polished four scruffy lads who were going nowhere and in a matter of months turned them into a global phenomenon; of his unwavering belief in his artists and his tenacity in the face of getting turned down by every big record label; and of the style, guile and charm that allowed him to ‘break’ America and fundamentally change popular culture forever.
