Bono in conversation with Michka Assayas

Sorry if this is not the appropriate forum.

BONO in conversation with Michka Assayas,
with a foreword by Bono

Has anyone read this book? Is it any good? I hadn't heard of it before, but hubby saw it in the bookstore last night and bought me a copy. Seems to be some interesting reading so far.

Not bad but I thought it would be better.

I read this on the plane to and from Chicago and I could barely put it down. It's a very good read, and very insightful. I highly recommend it.

Bought it, but haven't found the time to read it yet. You know, work, family, blue crack, other U2 book,...

Yep, I thought so too.

For all that Bono's open with his answers, he's also incredibly evasive.

I personally got more out of Neil McCormick's "I was Bono's Doppelganger" and a greater hint to his personality.

I have it reserved at the library. Can't wait to get it!

I find it very amusing that Bono writes the forward to a book about Bono.

It was pretty good, but if you're not that interested in Bono, but primarily in the band as a whole, maybe you should just borrow it.
Well worth a read anyhow, made me laugh, and (almost) cry at times.

I think it's great book. Really nice reading. And some of those Bono's answers... ))) Great.
There's a lot of things I have heard for the first time about.
