I grew up to these guys and still play them every other day if not every day. I first acquired this book thinking it would be a good piece of memorabillia but as I started reading it I realized that I was getting the inside story about all of these amazing men from the beginning of their band to the present. What a remarkably well written account and how fortunate that a U2 fan is given such wonderful insight from the horses mouth. I laughed out loud many times at the cheekiness of a few of these guys, to the point where my husband was like "what is so funny" of course its mostly "Bono" and his great sense of description. If you like this band, you should buy this book and cherish it.
