Format: Hardcover
'On the Move' is based on Bono's speech before the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington in 2006 along with photographs that he took during his first trip to Ethiopia in 1986. I especially loved reading about how Bono became involved in relief efforts in Africa. I was deeply touched by Bono's words which are a call for compassion and justice for Africa. Over 6000 Africans are dying every day from preventable diseases and we need to do something about it. I admire Bono for his caring and compassion and it shows through in his words. I highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be informed and inspired.

I also recommend lectures given by Stephen Lewis, who has worked tirelessly on helping Africans with AIDS, called 'Race Against Time.' These lectures shows that we can transform the world in a better direction to achieve goals of universal primary education, to stop the scourge AIDS and to create environmental sustainability.

I would also recommend some books on compassion from a spiritual perspective, including: an audio CD by Pema Chodron called 'Awakening Compassion: Meditation Practice for Difficult Times.' Also try 'Teachings on Love' by the revered Vietnamese Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and a fiction book about how we're all interconnected 'NEXUS: A Neo Novel.'

This is really a very moving book. And also very personal and emotional. Bono is a good storyteller and shows what moves him to do his work for Africa. Powerful and inspiring!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Poor Are IMPORTANT and Matter 15 Feb. 2010
By J Emmettson - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It must be one of those important lessons that the writers of the Bible really wanted us to learn - the distribution of resources is not equal across the board. There are over 2,100 references to the poor/the impoverished/poverty in the Bible.

"On The Move" is a short book, which should take about an hour to read. After that, it takes a lifetime to digest and integrate into your lifestyle. It is rock singer Bono's address to the 2006 National Prayer Breakfast, in Washington D.C. The speech lists twice, the first time, in short segments with pictures, and the second, as complete text, with no pictures.

I'm leading a weekly discussion at my church, on Poverty, Justice, and the Bible. "On The Move" was quoted in one of my resources, and I bought a handful to share with the group. Since then, they have been made available to the entire congregation. All we ask, is that, after they are finished, they pass on the book to someone else.

The photos are of people in Africa, but they could be anywhere. They are photos that call us to reflect, to get angry, and to get involved.

"On The Move" is one of those books that reaches us at a variety of levels. We HAVE the resources to level the playing field, and make poverty history. If I could, I would buy enough copies to always have one to give to a family member, friend, or co-worker. All the royalties of the sale of the book, are being donated to the ONE Campaign, to make poverty history. See [...] for more information.

I highly recommend the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than I could expect 2 May 2007
By Y. Bartsch - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For a small book, this one packs the hugest punch of all! I knew that getting something Bono was involved with would really move me but I had no idea how much. This book should be read by every human being on the planet. 2nd behind the Bible.

His love for Africa and his passion for this country is obvious from the first page to the last. Just reading his words have inspired me to get more involved than I already am.

My prayer is that this book will have the same impact on all who read it and that we will all share it with the rest of the world.
5.0 out of 5 stars great read...choose hardback over e-version 15 Nov. 2013
By Rebecca Dunger Peak - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have both hardback and kindle version of this book. Bono have a fabulous speech that challenges each reader to do more to make a difference in the world. God is on the move and we are called to be on the move as well. The photos are great. The problem with the photos in the kindle version is that it's difficult to read the text overlayed into the photos. Fortunately the full text is printed again without the photos. I prefer the paper version. Yet the kindle version met the immediate need in the moment. The book/is definitely worth the read!
5.0 out of 5 stars Review of "On The Move" 19 Sept. 2009
By T. Pullum - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had seen the book before but for whatever reason had not purchased it. It contains the entire speech that Bono gave at The National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC in '06. The photos are the ones he & Ali took during their mission trip to Ethiopia prior to the making of The Joshua Tree. For any die hard U2 fan, it is a must have in your collection.
2.0 out of 5 stars Bono being Bono 27 Dec. 2012
By Jp - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong--absolutely idolize Bono. But this one is basically a small picture book jammed with the stuff he already usually says. Unless a portion of the proceeds go to a worthy cause, you can likely skip this. Sorry.
