I picked it up today. I've only read a little bit of it, but I'm going to continue tonight. So far, so good.

Just FYI, this book is now #10 on the national non-fiction bestsellers list in Canada.

I think I saw it at #4 or something in Australia. Might have even been # 3.

I think it's a pretty good read but agree that Bono holds back at times. For a guy that talks as much as he does, he quite often skirted questions he didn't want to answer, like the ones about drug use, and the death of Larry's sister. He seemed to talk more about the people he's met over time(at least thats the impression I got after one quick read of it)

Well I don't think he'd have to tell everything about his life just because he's doing an interview. He's said before very eloquently why he won't speak of drug use. And as for Larry's sister, that's not his story to disclose IMO.

What's the reason he doesn't speak about drug (ab)use?
I ordered this book yesterday through Amazon Germany, it should arrive in a day or 4.
I'm curious to read it, and the discussion about it on here makes it all the more intriguing.

I think he once mentioned he doesn't want to give any one any ideas about drug use, that's why he said he wouldn't tell whether he ever used or not.
I guess it would look cool for a rockstar to say he uses.

I've also read other interviews where you could really read between the lines and make out that he thinks it's stupid t start drugs. I believe he once said he doesn't need drugs as he's hyper on his own

But overall, I feel like he's mellowed down much on these things and (in my opinion), it might have to do with their children growing up and seeing and reading more about their fathers. He sure doesn't want to set a bad example
I think he was much more explicit in the Zoo days.

BTW how much did you pay for the book, I'm thinking of getting a copy myself, but haven't decided where yet.

I agree about the bit about Larry's sister, it's not Bono place to reveal (if there ever was anything to tell in the first place).
If Larry wanted us to know I'm sure we would have heard about it. And maybe one day we will (like in the U2 by U2 book)....not that I imagine we will, it's a Larry story, not a U2 one.

Hi Greety

Thanks for the explanation
I ordered through Amazon Germany and paid 27.50 Euro, shipping included. It was on stock and should arrive some time next week!
