Description for Surrender: Bono Autobiography: 40 Songs, One Story Hardback. As one of the music world’s most iconic artists, Bono’s career has been written about extensively. But in SURRENDER, it’s Bono who picks up the pen, writing for the first time about his remarkable life and those he has shared it with. In his unique voice, Bono takes us from his early days growing up in Dublin, including the sudden loss of his mother when he was 14, to U2’s unlikely journey to become one of the world’s most influential rock bands, to his more than 20 years of activism dedicated to the fight against AIDS and extreme poverty. Writing with candour, self-reflection, and humour, Bono opens the aperture on his life – and the family, friends, and faith that have sustained, challenged, and shaped him. SURRENDER’s subtitle, “40 Songs, One Story,” is a nod to the book’s forty chapters, each named after a U2 song. Bono has also created 40 original drawings for SURRENDER, and an animated video, narrated by Bono and based on some of his drawings, was released today across U2’s digital platforms. The video illustrates an extract from SURRENDER’s “Out of Control” chapter, in which Bono tells the story of writing U2’s first single on 10th May 1978 – his 18th birthday, exactly 44 years ago today.

'When I started to write this book I was hoping to draw in detail what I'd previously only sketched in songs. The people, places, and possibilities in my life. ... Read more
