Beyond the Music: The Bono Story by Kim Washburn


Beyond the Music: The Bono Story by Kim Washburn

Awards, fame, wealth ...Bono has it all. But one of the biggest rock stars in the world has something more important which has guided every step of his success: faith. From growing up in Ireland during deadly times, to performing on the largest stages in the world, Bono's beliefs have kept him grounded and focused on what truly matters. In addition to his award-winning music, his humanitarian efforts have earned him an honorary knighthood and a Nobel Peace Prize nomination. Previously published as Breaking Through by Grace, this revised edition includes the latest on Bono, the injury that interrupted a sold-out tour, and his work on the Broadway musical, Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark. Whether using his voice to captivate an audience or fight for justice, Bono is a champion of the lost and a hero to those who long for harmony.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
