The real story of U2 is U2 in the live setting! As the band has always said, that is what its about, those two hours on stage, the rest is BS. With that in mind Pimms book towers over Flanegans like a Mountain! God Bless You Pimm!
Although there is a lot of info in Flanagens book about the ZOO era since that is all it covers, Pimms book had all kinds of info from the ZOO era that Flanegan never touched on. U2: A Concert Documentary, is far an away the best book ever put out on any Artist!

I think Flanagan's book helped me to see the guys more as real people, which I really liked a lot. Carter Alan's book was good too, I agree, but it seemed a lot more "distanced" to me.

the proverbial BFB for me as well. Even tho it only covers a small portion of the lives of U2, it's so detailed, well-written and downright hilarryous, it puts all over books about U2 to shame! (IMHO)

The def of bible being "a book authoritative in its field", I would say there are two: if you want to know an insight into WHO the band are, the way the think, act, etc, Flanagan's would be the way to go. But if you re interested in them professionally, what they've done, where they've been etc, you can't beat Pimm's books. These two books are worlds apart as far as perspective, but both are equally relevant (I think) and far and away better than anything anyone else has put forth, IMO.
