Format: Paperback
I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this book for some time now, and like standing in the rain trying to get early dibs on U2 concert tickets, it was well worth the wait.

Author Matt McGee does a spectacular job organizing information, dates, and photos from as early back as 1950, up until the end of 2007.

Diehard U2 fans will want to read this diary from cover to cover, but there's something in here for everyone that's ever heard of the best band in the world. I found myself flipping directly to the pages of 1987 and reading tales of U2 in downtown Los Angeles. It was March 27th, 1987, when U2 performed on the rooftop of a liquor store on 7th and Main. I remember that day well. Where were you on that day? What shows have you been to? Do you still have your old ticket stubs? U2 A Diary is loaded with information that will take you down a rock 'n roll memory Lane.

An incredible amount of work has gone into the creation of this day-by-day diary and complete history of U2. The author should be awarded best U2 fan in the world. Thanks Matt McGee, for putting this all together. Awesome stuff!

Format: Paperback
If you are a real U2 freak and want to know the full picture of how the greatest band in the world came to be then this book is the ultimate. I only got it today and so far have really just flicked through the pages but I know already that some of the questions that are in my head about the evolution of the band will now at last be answered. Matt, your are a genius and obviously a very organized person to be able to collect all this info together and present it so beautifully. It's well worth it's cost and will take pride of place on my bookshelf next to U2 Show,U2 by U2 and U2andI by Anton Corbijn. Top marks for both content and beautiful presentation. But, I ask myself? how am I ever going to find the time to absorb all this information?

Matt has created an incredibly comprehensive document about U2. U2 Diary works not only as a reference work but also as a compelling narrative. Well-written and complete, this is a must read for any and all U2 fans.

I've always loved U2 but after discovering this gem of a book which essentially chronicles the history of U2 in diary format helped me to see a personal side of the band that I've never seen before. I was excited to pick the book up each day and was almost sad when I had finished it.

McGee ignited a deeper passion in me for this band, so much so that I have since made sure that I have every one of their studio albums in my collection, joined the U2 fan club and attended my first U2 concert which happened to be the 360 tour.

Thanks to the author for the time and involvement it must have took to compile so much information on one the biggest bands in the world.
