New on bookstands June 7 is The U2 Reader: A Quarter Century of Commentary, Criticism and Reviews by Hank Bordowitz, published by Hal Leonard Books.
According to the author’s web site, the book is “the most comprehensive, one-stop source for articles and reviews on the world’s most popular rock band.”
A review published in the June issue of Library Journal Reviews describes Bordowitz’s book as a thematic study of the band that doesn’t deliver.
“Fans will get frustrated by the lack of scintillating material (not to mention pictures), and students looking to write a term paper won’t get a comprehensive overview,” writes reviewer Heather McCormack.
The book is available to order at Amazon.com.
