U2: An Irish Phenomenon
Author: Vinja Cogan
Publisher: Pegasus Books (March 1, 2008)
Paperback: 304 pages
ISBN-10: 1933648716

What? Another U2 book? Yes, but this one covers the band from some interesting perspectives from the author--a longtime fan and speaker at U2 conferences. The band is covered in several topics, including its sense of community, Irish independence, spirituality, imagination, ambition, social conscience, ambition and strategy, and the U2 myth. These elements have allowed U2 to conquer the world. They broke the mold, avoided the "rock star" scene, and constantly struggled to improve. U2 is part of a generation looking for a voice. This book presents U2 from a variety of interesting views. Definitely worth reading.
