I honestly think he hasn't a lot to lose? I can't see writing an A.B. as a bad thing for him.
His persona has so many facets from childhood, to rock stardom and debauchery, jetsetting and eventually politics, and being brought back to a mere mortal by multiple with accidents, injuries, and fighting with your body (and likely your mind) at "that" age.
I guess a lot of people / reviewers (scum of the earth) are gonna have high expectations of it. Maybe that's the only thing ? But I'm sure this is gonna be a well selling thing and pleasure to read.
I took the comment “just hope he don’t lose it” as a witty reference to when he lost his notebook with the original lyrics for the October album; i.e let’s hope he doesn’t leave his MacBook with the final manuscript somewhere. 😂
"I think the narrative has been distorted by the very young, in I think you get better as a band the longer you stay together the longer you stay playing. You become much more confident about your own abilities or limitations depending on how you look at it. We row much less. Our rehearsals were one big fight. You have to go through that. We each know what we do, we respect each other, and it’s a lot more fun, and we finish earlier. It’s great!"

U2 lost money on the production of the 1997 Sarajevo PopMart show as ticket prices were kept low, an average of $18, which did not cover the cost of the production. Any income generated from radio sales went to War Child.
