Prince Music Book

So I got bored the other day and picked up one of my favorite books: "Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson" by Joseph Vogel.

I adore this book it goes through every single song and detail on how it came to be, the writing of lyrics, the beat, where certain sounds came from. Everything. It even goes through notable unrealeased songs.

It got me thinking, is there any Prince books that focuses on strictly his professional life. Sure the book I mentioned goes through Michael's private life only when it's relevant to the album. But I want a Prince one. Any suggestions?

"Prince a Documentary" by Per Nilsen is much like

the Documentary books by Adrian Grant on MJ. "A Visual Documentary" is one of them by Adrian Grant on MJ.

They in my opinion are the GO TO Books on both of them.

They cronolize their entire careers at least up to a specific time frame Cause' several versions have been release throughout their careers.

I guess now they actually both will have to have a completed version since prince also now has

LEFT THE MUSIC WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????
