We gave it a B

An oral history/coffee-table tome culled from 150 hours of journalist Neil McCormick’s interviews with the band (and their manager).

Brush With Death
After a long night of boozing in Tokyo in ’93, Bono wakes up with a six-foot boa constrictor climbing his leg.

Final Judgment
Despite some fascinating details, the nearly 350 pages of as-told-to text is dense, sometimes sluggish.
