Salvatore Petronella and Christopher Sorgie, authors of U2itude: The Ultimate Handbook for U2 Fans, have . This whole book is an exercise in futility

Salvatore Petronella and Christopher Sorgie, authors of U2itude: The Ultimate Handbook for U2 Fans, have put together a book that they claim to be a "scientific" study of U2 songs, but is actually an autobiography of two guys who listened to U2 while growing up together in Queens. It fails on both counts. This whole book is an exercise in futility.

Authors Salvatore Petronella and Christopher Sorgie (known as Sal and Sorge throughout the book) have been U2 fans since high school, forming a life-long bond over the "War"-era U2. Here they’ve created a five-category "scientific" method for ranking every U2 song based on music. Here they’ve created a five-category "scientific" method for ranking every U2 song based on music, lyrics, message, energy and U2itude (points assigned to songs that no one else could have made), with five points possible in each category. From the outset, Sal and Sorge know not every reader will agree with their assessments so each album has its own chart where you can give your own five-point.

not that great,no new info ,just authors opinions.
This book was great... not just okay I read it, I liked it, now what. I'm going to do something productive with my U2 obsession. Thank you SO much Sal and Sorgie. U agreed with lots of what was written. This is a must read for any U2 fan... big or not.
and it pissed me off so much, I made her send it back. I really was going to go into a bunch of detail about my feelings and how pretentious I thought the authors are, but the review below totally sums up my feelings. If you had no real familiarity with U2 or wanted to know more about the music, without taking the time to come up with your own opinions, then this would be the book for you. But if you are a fan, I can't imagine actually wanting to pay money for someone to tell you what they think of the songs. If you are looking for insite into the music of U2, buy "U2 By U2" and pass on this.
Written with an enthusiasm spilling over into outright passion, "U2itude" offers an authoritative song-by-song look at U2's discography plus something else -- an objective method to evaluate your favorite songs, whether they're by U2 or not. This is worth the price of the book alone, but the authors' obvious love of the band, combined with their personal anecdotes and highly opinionated lists, make it a must-read not just for U2 fans, but for anyone who's ever screamed their lungs out when the lights finally went out and the concert was just beginning. If you've ever walked out of a record store unwrapping your new purchase already, this is the book for you.
I just read it. I liked it very much. It made me want to debate Sal and Sorgie on some of their ratings ( I love "Lemon"), which is precisely the point. They've been debating each other for years (hence the book).

One claim they make is that I'll never listen to a u2 song in the same way. They may just have a point!

It deserves a spot on my U2 book shelf. It's a fun read, entertains and informs. What more could you want! To give a percentage of it's profit to a great cause, perhaps? It does just that.

Great job, guys.
This book is written for all U2 fans, by 2 guys who are huge fans themselves! The book takes a close look at all the songs, and rates them! It is fun to read their ratings, and to read how these songs have touched their life! The book gives you a space to rate each song yourself. It is fun to sit down & rate the songs yourself & debate it with a friend! A book all fans will love!
This book is a must have for the U2 fan, written by two guys who, you can tell, are really huge U2 fans. The authors provide personal anecdotes from their years of listening to the band and seeing them live. On top of that they provide an interactive guide to rating their songs and albums and they have some really great playlists (for just about any occasion) for you iPod.
The last two angry reviewer did not get this book at all. Not only does this book have heart and obviously come from TRUE U2 fans, but the authors really came up with a unique system to rating songs. I agree, it makes me think of all songs in a different, more thoughful way. I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait to put their top 50 on a playlist.
