U2 are the biggest band in the world and this diary is the single most comprehensive resource that details all of the relevant day-to-day events that have shaped U2 into the band it is today.

It also includes details of the birth of Zoo TV on the island of Tenerife, U2's struggle to finish the Pop album and its impact on Universal Music and Bono's behind-the-scenes manoeuvres to gain support for his ONE Campaign in the early 2000s.

McGee ignited a deeper passion in me for this band, so much so that I have since made sure that I have every one of their studio albums in my collection, joined the U2 fan club and attended my first U2 concert which happened to be the 360 tour.
Thanks to the author for the time and involvement it must have took to compile so much information on one the biggest bands in the world.
Author Matt McGee does a spectacular job organizing information, dates, and photos from as early back as 1950, up until the end of 2007.
Diehard U2 fans will want to read this diary from cover to cover, but there's something in here for everyone that's ever heard of the best band in the world. I found myself flipping directly to the pages of 1987 and reading tales of U2 in downtown Los Angeles. It was March 27th, 1987, when U2 performed on the rooftop of a liquor store on 7th and Main. I remember that day well. Where were you on that day? What shows have you been to? Do you still have your old ticket stubs? U2 A Diary is loaded with information that will take you down a rock 'n roll memory Lane.
An incredible amount of work has gone into the creation of this day-by-day diary and complete history of U2. The author should be awarded best U2 fan in the world. Thanks Matt McGee, for putting this all together. Awesome stuff!
Matt's research was thorough and incredibly accurate - the pictures are a delight, many of which were never before printed. It's the most comprehensive chronology I've seen so far and believe me, I've seen them all (and own most of them).
A must buy for the uberfan, but also a lot to offer the casual fan who wants to visit different seasons in the band's history at their own pace. Besides "U2 by U2" I don't think there's a better book about U2 out there.
