The Booklet with the DVD version

Utter rubbish.

It looks like they spent zero money on it and zero effort.

Showing your soul doesn't cost money. It takes guts.

Yeah, the idea wasn't to be flashy. It's sort of intimate. Of course, there's a paradox about selling intimacy to the masses via mass production.

What do you object to in the book, specifically?

I like the book, but it seems so small for what the content is inside. I would imagine that each individual page/ piece of art inside was at least on letter sized paper. Bono's original paintings must have been much larger than that, maybe 16'' x 20'' or larger, so to downsize so much is a little awkward, but I'm really glad the decided to include the booklet. They need to open up the vaults a little bit more to make it seem like they didn't just create the art inside to sell it, rather to show it is really like them to do those kinds of things on the side, or as part of their rituals.

One thing that did bother me about the book was that I feel I'm gonna rip the damn thing in half when I open it. It's pretty tight and so smalle that if I open it too much, I think the binding might rip in half. Is it just me?

My only complaint with the book is that I can't read Bono's handwriting.

The book is alright, nothing special. I looked through it once and never went back to it since. It's a must if you're a big u2 fan to have, but I wouldn't recommend it to the casual fan. The other edition was better with just the CD&DVD, the DVD is great.

And I noticed several grammatical errors in his writings. Sorry, it's the editor in me.
