yes, depending on your location in your u2.com account profile, you might get a location-based email offer from main site, not all areas are covered probably down to licensing / copyright, not to say those areas not covered may not receive other offers at some point in future, not known here at this point all the ins and outs of these...

We've been waiting for this book for so long since it was first rumored! 

I'm so excited that we're finally getting it. Bono is the beeeeest storyteller and I have absolutely no doubt this is going to be amazing. The excerpt we got definitely confirmed that ❤️ 

So yeah. I'm one happy fan. Happy to finally get to hear this freaking amazing story from the man himself because let's be honest, he's a bit unreal sometimes so it's going to be fun to have his perspective - and Shane MacGowan comments only makes me want it more 😂

Planning a day off to listen to the audio book and a 2nd one to recover (that's probably gonna take a lot longer though). 

Anyways. Sorry to ramble as usual. I just CAN'T WAIT. Gwaaaan B🔥🔥🔥

I'm absolutely delighted that we will get the opportunity to read Bono's autobiography.

The fact that he's recorded an audiobook, too, is the cherry on top. He has the perfect voice, and it will be wonderful to hear him narrating his own words.

There are whispers of a book tour in the Fall... it would be incredible if we could have 'An Audience With' type of event.

It's U2.  How can one not ramble?  The ones who don't are crazy, not us. 😁

After hearing the desert island interview with Bono, I'm especially excited to read this book.  I love how he shared a glimpse of him when he said what he did about the Peter Frampton song. I almost went through the ceiling when he said he'd bring a guitar and maybe he could somehow play it. It's nice to have something to look forward to in November, as it's a nasty month for weather by me.
