I think that definitely didn't help, because obviously the Beatles fought over who should manage them. If you read the Emerick book though, it seems like Brian might have been losing his hold over them, and may not have been able to retain it. The Beatles were really looking to be their own bosses, something I don't think they had the business smarts for. I'm not sure even Brian could have prevented the breakup, though he might have delayed it.

Surely no one thinks Brian could have prevented the breakup? Yes, he probably helped them communicate better, but as several people pointed out already, he wasn't interacting with the Beatles as much any more and he wasn't so involved in their day-to-day lives.

As I understand it, the issue is when the breakup would have happened, how bad it would have been, and whether the Beatles could have patched things up afterward.

I totally agree!
