Item Description...
Outline ReviewIn 1975, four teenagers from Mount Temple School in Dublin gathered in a crowded kitchen to discuss forming a band. The drum kit just about fit into the room, the lead guitarist was playing a homemade guitar, the bassist could barely play at all and nobody wanted to sing. Over thirty years later, Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. are still together, bound by intense loyalty, passionate idealism and a relentless belief in the power of rock and roll to change the world.

Watch a video introduction to U2 by U2

In a epic journey that has taken them from the clubs of Dublin to the stadiums of the world, U2 have sold over 130 million albums, been number one all over the world, revolutionized live performance, spearheaded political campaigns and made music that defines the age we live in.

From the anarchic days of their Seventies punk origins through their Eighties ascent to superstardom with the epic rock of The Joshua Tree, the dark post-modern ironies of Achtung Baby in the Nineties and their 21st-Century resurgence as rock's biggest and boldest band, this is a tale of faith, love, drama, family, birth, death, survival, conflict, crises, creativity . . . and a lot of laughter.

Told with wit, insight and astonishing candour by the band themselves and manager Paul McGuinness, with pictures from their own archives, U2 by U2 allows unprecedented access into the inner life of the greatest rock band of our times.

A "scrapbook" companion to the video and CD  Mar 25, 2007
but it's a lot more, it's a coffeetable book and the story of a band that has kept the core members together for almost 30 years. It is like "Anthology" but all the band members were alive to tell the story. Pink Floyd "Inside Out" (which had Nick tell the story, but Roger and David edited, so it is essentially the official band bio) and the Rolling Stones (and Bill Wyman separately) have also told the tale. I like how the Elvis and Bob Dylan scrapbooks are laid out with reproductions, and wish U2 had gone that route with this book.

I think it's great to go back and be able to see and hear (even on You Tube) the massive amount of footage dating back to 1978(!) that deserve a video retrospective that is as big as this book. "Classic Albums" on DVD "Joshua Tree" serves as a nice diversion from the book when they get up to that era.

Crank up the music, watch the videos, and have a nice read.
Awesome Book  Mar 14, 2007
Was totally impressed - this is not a book to read from cover to cover all at once - just pick pages at a time; skip around and totally enjoy!!
A real coffee table book - some nights I spend an hour reading; sometimes just a few minutes; sometimes just look at pictures. Have read many things several times. Worth every penny!!
it hasn't arrived  Mar 13, 2007
I'm unable to review U2 by U2 because as yet I've not recieved it.
Even beter than the real thing...  Mar 11, 2007
OK, I'm a big U2 fan and that would make my view biased, but this book is GREAT!
I received it as a gift from my girlfiend and I've loved it. It has all that detail in one source, direct from U2. You can feel the band's character in each page, you know which member is writin each part even from just flicking through the pages.
I consider it's a must have for any fan, a way of getting really close to the band, "even better than the real thing".
If you're looking for a gift ida for a U2 fan there is nothing better (unless they already have it =)
OK, not great.  Feb 19, 2007
I LOVE U2. They're one of my favorite groups and I have many of their albums. I was hoping this book would tell more about their time in the studio but instead I got 350 pages of Bono talking about how his politics and lyrics are changing the world with occasional commentary from the rest of the band and their manager. Seriously, 40% of the book is Bono talking about himself. It appears to have been written by means of 5 guys sitting in a room together with a tape recorder running. It's still an interesting read and I learned a lot about their past and so forth but it's just too much of Bono talking.
