Bono by Bono( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the lead singer of U2, Bono has sold 130 million albums, won fourteen Grammys, and played numerous sold-out world tours, but he has also worked with world leaders from Bill Clinton and George W. Bush to Nelson Mandela on debt relief, AIDS, and other global issues. He has collaborated with the same musicians for nearly three decades and has been married to his childhood sweetheart since 1982. His life, at all turns, resists the rock star clichés. In a series of intimate conversations, Bono reflects on his transformation from the extrovert singer of a small Irish post-punk band into one of the most famous individuals in the world; and from an international celebrity to an influential spokesperson for the Third World. He speaks candidly about his faith, family, commitment, influences, service, and passion.--From publisher description
