Format: Paperback
Flanagan's "U2 At The End Of The World" is an unmissable insight into four lads from Dublin who have become without doubt the biggest band in the world.
Starting in 1991, during the recording of Achtung Baby in the Hansa Studios in Germany and spanning the heights of the Zoo TV spectacle and the recording of Zooropa, this book is a condensed four-year look at the Irish band.
Unlimited access to the band, their staff and exclusive VIP areas means that Flanagan is always there to capture the action, adding his own unique and intelligent insights along the way. From the steamy stint between Adam Clayton and supermodel Naomi Campbell to Bono's alter-alias MacPhisto trying to phone the Pope!
This book has changed the way I think about the band, answered all the questions I wanted to ask and been all the places I wish I had been. If you are a U2 fan, you will love it. If you are a music lover of any kind, you will love it. An absolute must have!

From the bad beginnnings of the Auctung Baby sessions to the glory of the zoo tv and zooropa tours, this books describes them all, following U2 wherever they go is Bill Flanagan and his pen and paper. Given unlimited access to the band and there history, he write the the perfect story, this book is one of the best around. A must buy if you are a serious U2 fan and want to see how things are really done!!

Format: Paperback
ALl the preceeding reviews are completely right about this book.

Written by a long-time friend of the band, the book is not as partial as it would seem at first. It covers the most complex chapter in the band's history and the range of subjects is considerable: Fame, music, evolution, politics, the music industry, bands problems, the show, the aftermath of the show and the tour, Bono, Adam, Edge, Larry, Paul; the show in Berlin, at the States, Dublin, Tv, the road...

You'll never get bored with this book. Even if you're not a U2 fan.

And if English is not your mother tongue (like in my case), you'll improve your level. No jokes on this last one!
