Reseña del editor

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 presents the complete history of the band from 1950s Dublin to the present day. It provides the important stories behind the 'who, what, when and where' including stories and insights about key moments in U2s development that have never been told before.Through interviews and far-reaching research, author Matt McGee will shed light on stories including the band's 1978 victory in a St Patrick Day's talent content which led to their first studio session with CBS and Bono's visit to Central America in 1986, which led directly to several songs on The Joshua Tree. 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. It contains input from fans who have contributed their memories and personal photographs of the band.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas U2: A Diary, Made me an Even Bigger Fan of U2 8 de junio de 2011
Por David Wallace - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
I've always loved U2 but after discovering this gem of a book which essentially chronicles the history of U2 in diary format helped me to see a personal side of the band that I've never seen before. I was excited to pick the book up each day and was almost sad when I had finished it.

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.

Matt has created an incredibly comprehensive document about U2. U2 Diary works not only as a reference work but also as a compelling narrative. Well-written and complete, this is a must read for any and all U2 fans.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas U2 Rock 'n Roll Fans Dream 3 de noviembre de 2008
Por Michael Dorausch - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this book for some time now, and like standing in the rain trying to get early dibs on U2 concert tickets, it was well worth the wait.

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!
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Comprehensive and well written 5 de diciembre de 2009
Por Laura Eder - Publicado en Amazon.com

I've been a long time reader of Matt McGee's fan blog [...] (which BTW I visit more often that U2's official website because the written content is often better) as well as a long time fan of Matt's writing so I was excited when I found out he was going to put his extensive knowledge about my favorite band into a full-fledged book. The results are outstanding.

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.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Answers all your U2 questions 23 de octubre de 2008
Por M. Morgan - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
If you are a real U2 freak and want to know the full picture of how the greatest band in the world came to be then this book is the ultimate. I only got it today and so far have really just flicked through the pages but I know already that some of the questions that are in my head about the evolution of the band will now at last be answered. Matt, your are a genius and obviously a very organized person to be able to collect all this info together and present it so beautifully. It's well worth it's cost and will take pride of place on my bookshelf next to U2 Show,U2 by U2 and U2andI by Anton Corbijn. Top marks for both content and beautiful presentation. But, I ask myself? how am I ever going to find the time to absorb all this information?
