U2 by U2 is the definitive history of the world’s biggest and best rock band, in their own words. For the first time, the band themselves provide the inside track on the U2 story so far. And what a story it is; from a notice board at Mount Temple High School in Dublin to their 11th album How to Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, via three covers of Time magazine, while picking up 14 Grammy Awards and an astonishing 130million album sales along the way.
Often cited as ‘a gang of four and a corporation of five’, U2 by U2 tells the full history with the essential voice of long term manager Paul McGuinness, who joined forces with U2 back in 1977. Designed by the U2 creative team, U2 by U2 unfolds over 352 pages, including many rare and previously unpublished photographs. This is a unique document of the band’s career. It promises to be the ultimate personal behind-the-scenes narrative on the life and times of this legendary band.
