U2 by U2 book already released?

Amazon says Sep 1st, but I haven't seen anyone talking about it yet.

Heavens! I'm assuming that date is wrong, since even the official site hasn't pimped it yet.

Here's what I've got so far on this:

-Original release date was slated to be Sept. 13, 2005

-Letter from U2 on the UK HarperCollins site states that the book will be pushed back until 2006 so that the band can focus on the tour.

-Barnes & Noble still has "Sept. 2005" as the release date. When I spoke with an employee of B&N, she said they're expecting it to come out this month.

-Amazon.com originally had Sept. 13th as the availability date. They are now selling it with availability listed as "ships in 2-3 days," and the publishing date as Sept. 1, 2005.

I bought a copy from Amazon last week and was told that it will ship to me on Sept. 22nd (much longer than 2-3 days!) and that I will get it by Sept. 24-26th. I'll let everyone know next week what happens!

My best guess is they're waiting to include HTDAAB and it's tour.


EDIT: Just out of curiousity, is "U2 & I" out? If so, how is it?

Oh well. I had a feeling that'd be the case after I saw that letter from the band. But I was still hoping...

U2 & I , is a great book, it´s a very well printed book, a very HEAVY book, and a VERY expensive book. 80.00 euros here in Planet_Portugal... BUT I bought my copy.
It´s ALL worth it.

I am going to be buried with that book inside my coffin when I die of old age !

no, just kidding, I don´t want to take the book with me inside the coffin, BUT it is a great pictorial book on U2.

Another good pictorial book is U2 The Show, it's all about their famous lives shows (well duh) at different stages of their career, I haven't bought it yet, but I've read reviews etc.

And we only have to wait another year or so to see what's inside.
(I wouldn't be surprised if it had a different cover by then.)

Just got a an email from Amazon saying they've canceled my order for U2 by U2 because of the delay in shipping. Oh well.

^ I wish the publishers would make up their minds when they're going to
release this book for sure.

This is getting more and more disappointing to hear !!

Actually, it's not the publisher's fault. The plan had been to release the book this fall, but then U2 realized that being on a bit of a world tour was eating into their spare time. Imagine that!
Bad planning on their part, I think. They must know by now (everyone else does) that everything they do takes ages to complete.

Really ?!?
Or maybe they postponed the release cuz they decided to add stuff that's happened during the Vertigo Tour ... it's such a current event right now with U2, that I don't believe they would want to complete the book without it.

Synopsis
On the occasion of U2's 25th birthday, Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry have come together to provide the inside track on the U2 story so far. They have given hundreds of hours of in-depth interviews and provided rare and previously unpublished photographs to record, in their own words, the definitive history of the world's biggest and best rock band. For the first time U2 will tell their own story in their own words and in glorious technicolour. This is the first book that they have initiated and, in their 25th anniversary year, it will be the definitive account of one of the biggest bands the world has known. This official history of U2 provides the fullest and most personal account of the life and times of the legendary band, and features hundreds of photographs, including some which are exclusive to the book, and many from the band member's personal collections. U2 BY U2 covers the band members' lives before U2, taking us through their early family history to that first fateful meeting in Larry's kitchen, through the evolution of the band from playing church halls to 100,000 seat stadiums, not to mention the 14 Grammy Awards and an astonishing 130 million album sales along the way. Large format and visually stunning, the book has been designed by the U2 creative team of Steve Averill and Shaughn McGrath who have created the majority of the band's iconic record covers.
It'll be the 27th anniversary year by the time it comes out!

It also says it is 400 pages. That's about the same as U2&I and that is massive. This should be great.
