STUNNING Photography (as we likely expected)... hilarious stories. Their relationship seems to have come from a mutually tender and admiring place. There's a few typos I noticed as I read through it... but nothing that takes away from this work of art. GET IT.

Without giving anything away do you feel the book gives you a glimpse or another side of Prince that you didn’t know?

I'll say no, the book reflects prince's spiritual side, romantic side, and funny side. Which is prince to the T 😉

Why the frown? Anyway those other threads are interview threads, this thread is for the people who have the book and can discuss the book

The book is exquisite. I devoured it in one sitting. It made me laugh and cry.

I saw it’s getting mostly 5 star reviews on Amazon. I don’t have mine yet. If you have Steve Parke’s book how would you compare/contrast the two?

I don't have the Parkes book. This is the first Prince book I've ever purchased. Something about watching Afshin Shahidi's interviews and perusing his Instagram page compelled me to make the purchase.

I personally liked Afshins book more than Steve's because the pictures are more intimate.
