Publisher Description

Bono—artist, activist, and the lead singer of Irish rock band U2—has written a memoir: honest and irreverent, intimate and profound, Surrender is the story of the remarkable life he’s lived, the challenges he’s faced, and the friends and family who have shaped and sustained him.

Narrated by the author, Surrender is an intimate, immersive listening experience, telling stories from Bono’s early days in Dublin, to joining a band and playing sold out stadiums around the world with U2, plus his more than 20 years of activism. 
 
Throughout a remarkable life, music has always been a constant for Bono and in the audiobook, his distinctive voice is interwoven with a very personal soundtrack adding atmosphere and texture to each and every scene. From moments of classic U2 hits to snippets by The Clash, Patti Smith, Verdi, Johnny Cash and Mozart, Surrender also exclusively features clips of newly recorded reimagined versions of U2 songs including ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’, ‘With Or Without You’, ‘One’, ‘Beautiful Day’ and more, glimpsed for the first time on Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story.

He just can’t help himself

Bono continues to revere Bill Clinton as if he were Elvis, regardless of all the things we Americans and the rest of the world learned long ago: the man was and is a corrupt creep.
All those Epstein flight logs didn’t make it into the book here for some reason.
Bono insults our intelligence with the swooning nonsense he throws around regarding the Clintons. His penchant for name dropping them grew very old a long time ago.
I wish someone would tell this hero of ours that he was always being used by these crooks to polish their own dirty reputations, good will missions and successes notwithstanding. Bono at least always put his money where his mouth is, so credit to him when too many superstars are content with the photo ops alone.

All that out of my way, it is a profound pleasure to actually listen to the man tell his stories.

Powerful

A really moving work. A deeply thoughtful writer, sincerely read by him. So many beautiful scenes. His bond with his brothers (including the band’s 5th member). Thank you Bono.

Amazing

Hearing Bono tell his own story is so much better than whatever voices I would have heard simply reading the book (which I also own). His voice, the music and sound effects - this was profoundly moving, tender at times, intense at other times, funny and incredibly inspirational. Highly, highly recommended.
