New Book : u2 by u2

In Their Own Words’

It will be the definitive U2 story. It will have stories never before told and photos never before seen. It is ‘U2byU2’ and worldwide publication is just two months away, on September 22nd.

For the first time each member of U2 – and manager Paul McGuinness - has told their own story from their earliest childhood memories to their first meeting with each other, from those opening chords in Larry’s kitchen to becoming the biggest band in rock’n’roll.

Ever wondered what it’s like being in a band with your school friends for your entire adult life?

Ever wanted to have a conversation with the band themselves ?

‘U2byU2’ is the ultimate conversation with Adam, Bono, Edge, Larry and Paul McGuinness in which they tell their own side of the U2 story.

Featuring more than 1500 images including previously unpublished photographs from the personal archives of the band, this hefty 350-page tells the U2 story from the perspective of those who know it best – and it brings it right up to date in 2006.

‘U2’s story is an extraordinary one and we are proud to be publishing this book.’ said Trevor Dolby, Publishing Director of HarperCollins Entertainment. ‘U2byU2 is a book not just for the fans but for everyone interested in music and modern culture.’

I wonder how much the cost will be, given the fact that it is probably the best U2 book there is out there...

1500 pictures crammed in a 350 page book? Damn, there's going to very little text. I thought this was going to be more autobiography than picture book.

Oh well. I'll still be buying it.

Yes the U2 Show book is still on the bargain tables for 9.99 at B.Dalton too and it is a nice big hardback book. (I paid full price awhile back).

I can't wait for this new one also... I don't care what it costs, it will be worth it I'm sure. I love books. Especially u2 books.
