This is the definitive book on U2, in my opinion. It is a very large coffee-table book, which I absorbed cover to cover. It tells their individual stories and background and follows every step of their journey to success. Beautiful artwork and the stories behind the albums and songs. My only complaint is it was difficult to read due to being such a large book and sometimes the print was over artwork that interfered with deciphering it. Worth every bit of it, though! Great book!
