    Bono is an ordinary man

    I have been a U2 fan since I was 13 years old, and I have always been in awe of Bono until I read this book. He is just an ordinary man with lofty dreams, like so many of us, but he has the ability to make those dreams come true because of his celebrity. I applaud his efforts and I am glad there is somebody in this world who cares for the downtrodden as he does.

    All you ever wanted to know...about Bono!

    I have always wondered what made him tick and what he thinks about, even down to the average everyday things of life. It is good to hear him discuss his thoughts on religion, politics and world charity. I think many people think that Bono is just a Rock & Roller with a big mouth and no substance...well here is some insight. It will change your mind. He is a great human being, as well as a great musician.

    Very Interesting converstations between friends

    I would recommend this book for anyone who is curious as to why Bono is the way he is-his religion, family and friends all made him the way he is. My favorite chapters were on his activism and why he goes about caring so much for the poor. Well written book about a wonderfully unique person.

    Bono like you've never known him, Michka does an outstanding job, beautiful book!!

    What a great book. Simply fantastic. Bono in his own words. Michka does quite an extraordinary job of getting Bono to spill it all. From his father, to his band mates, to politics, to religion. I've always admired Bono for his heart, but man does this book make you fall in love with him. This book is a must have for anyone looking for inspirations, for anyone looking for hope, and for anyone who wants to believe. Thanks you Michka, thank you Bono!!!

    the interview you always wanted Bono to do!

    I am a pretty big U2 fan, but I have always been very into Bono, his politics and personality. Most of the magazine interviews through the years have been only about music, so this is a really great insight into what makes Bono tick. He is very honest about himself and humble. I am not finished with the book, but can't wait to get back to it...I really recommend it to people who might be interested in U2, Bono or making the world more peaceful.

    This book changed my life

    The seriously is the best book I've ever read. No comment I could make about it, would do it justice. Just buy it. Read it. You won't beable to put it down. It is enlightening to say the least. You will be changed. Kudos to Michka for making his dream of writing this book a reality and thank you to Bono for making this world a better place.
