1 Aug 2005
With a foreword by Bob Geldof and over 300 colour photographs, this is the only official "Live 8" book to be published, and will chart one of the most momentous days the world has seen in decades. From Geldof's initial reluctance to stage another Band Aid event to the lead up to the concerts around the world and the day itself, this book is a unique record of an extraordinary day witnessed by over 85 per cent of the world's population. This book will also contain backstage images, exclusive photographs from the concerts around the world, reflections and quotes from the many performers."Live 8" includes text and pictures reminding us exactly what the day was about and what is now required in the battle towards making poverty history. It also includes reflections on the outcome of the landmark G8 Summit in Edinburgh.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Official Book 2 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Well, not even a month after the Live 8 event and this wonderful collector item is available to relive your memories. Although the book could have been a little longer, it is filled with wonderful images and concise information about the Live 8 event. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the books I have found about the previous Live Aid event back in July of 1985.
This book covers the reasons for having this global event, details about the G8 and the summit in Scotland, and has a ton of great shots not available elsewhere.
I would strongly recommend this book if you attended the concert or were interested in knowing some of the behind the scenes details of what it takes to put on such an event. I would have been nice if they included more details about the Russian event and the South African event. I found more details about the event at thelive8concert.com. If you would like a keepsake or have a friend that went to this, they would love you if you got them this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great souvenir of a memorable day in history 2 Aug 2005
Having been at the Live 8 concert in Hyde Park, there was no way that I wasn't going to buy this book, as it serves as an excellent souvenir of the day. The book features beautiful colour photographs of all the artists and provides the playlists and an insight into the running of the concerts. For anyone who went to the concert, this book is a must-have, along with the programme which could be purchased on the day. For those who are merely interested in the artists or the concerts, 'Live 8' is a worthwhile choice. However, if you require more in depth writing on the campaign or the artists themselves, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read if you were there! 26 Aug 2005
This book is a must read if you attended Live 8. It's full of pictures from the day and gives an insight into how people behind the scenes coped on the day, and what went on in Bob geldofs head!
It's basically an after event programme.

5.0 out of 5 stars I AM ONE OF THE CO-AUTHORS 2 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Working on this book has been an extraordinary experience andthe team at Random House have produced a book which is, in terms of atmosphere and vision, a fitting picture of a single day which has come to symbolise so much. The energies of Bob Geldof, Richard Curtis, Harvey Goldsmith and John Kennedy made it happen and the collective energies of the Make Poverty History alliance continues to spread the word - [...]
I hope you enjoy the book. Thanks to Hannah Black, Paul Vallely and Paul Gorman for bringing it home.
