I must say up-front that this is an incredible book, unmatched by any other photo documentary for the greatest band of all-time...or any other. As others have said, it is a MUST for any serious admiring fan of U2. I do want to make everyone aware, however, that when this book first came out, it measured approx. 14"-15" tall and was a true coffee-table book. I just received a copy I ordered for a friend who is also a huge fan and, upon opening the smiling Amazon box, found myself frowning when I was holding a 8"-9" version of the same book I have. The advertised list price of $60 was "slashed" by Amazon down to $38. Now I see why, and want to make sure you know this before purchasing.
