"It's easier to talk about politics and my life as an activist. But I also wrote the book to try to figure out what was going on with U2. I wanted to understand myself better, but I also wanted to understand the band better and the band’s place in culture. We wanted our music to change the world, as mad as that sounds, and I wanted to have fun."
- Bono on Surrender, 2022
