20 hours 25 minutes
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.

This is probably the best audio book I’ve ever listen to. So interesting and so entertaining. I didn’t want it to end. What an extraordinary life and human.

This memoir was fantastic. There was so much I didn’t know about his life. Being narrated by him made it that much more authentic.

This audiobook is really worth your while for the full experience of this book - from Bono singing lines from the songs (in ways you haven’t heard before), to his attempts at accents (the Bill Clinton one was a bit cruel but hilarious nonetheless), the audio version of this memoir really adds a special charm. Highly recommend!

I really enjoyed listening Bono tell his stories. He is an extraordinary person living an extraordinary life. I can’t say I was always a fan, because I did not discover U2 until the mid eighties, but have loved them ever since. I remember seeing the 360 tour in Edmonton. I bought 4 last minute tickets and took my hubby and daughter. I called an acquaintance that has since become my best friend to see if she’d like to go. It was such a fun night. Bono tells stories on stage and I loved listening to him. Something about his Irish lilt.
