New U2 book by John Jobling: http://us.macmillan.com/u2thedefinitivebiography/johnjobling
Via his uncle David Gibbon Facebook : I want to say a huge congratulations to my nephew, John Jobling. His dad died of cancer in 2004, and despite life throwing bad things at him he has written an incredible biography of U2 from his humble terraced council house. He spent five years researching the book, phoning up the White House and U2 producers. The book was rejected by more than 30 agents, but he persevered and sold it to London-based agent Andrew Lownie. The book was snapped up by publisher Macmillan in the US and is coming out across America October 7. It has already received rave reviews from the press. I took shots of John for it and my byline appears on both the website and in the book.
