Alan Carter. Apparently it's an update of "Outside Is America: U2 in the U.S."... but I've never heard of that one

I purchased the Dunphy book back in '88 and I still have not read it cover to cover. It's a bit dull. I do love U2ATEOTW. It is a must read for any fan. Excellent insight into the Zoo tour. And as others have mentioned, Faraway So Close is awesome. Love the photos and Beep's anecdotes.

Matt McGee's Book-U2 A Diary is an awesome reference book as it chronicles the band's history almost on a daily basis. Good stories in this one, as well.

I'm rereading U2 by U2 (finally got that paperback copy woohoo) and good LORD, I had forgotten how funny some of the scenes are.

I've also picked up a copy of The Stories Behind The Songs from the library, going to give that a read as well. Might as well given that album news is slow-drip as usual.

I remember the documentary being on the dvd that came in the JT box set.

Don't think I ever read the book. Might have to add that to my summer reading list.

question about 2 books on Amazon....
Exploring U2: Is this Rock and Roll? .......and U2 Above, Across, and Beyond......both have Scott Calhoun as editor and appear to be essays on U2. I'm wonderi if anyone can confirm whether they are Different editions/update of the same book or not?
