It's interesting this books gets a sticky when it is unofficial and in a very long line of other unofficial books.

.

However the Steve Parke design book and the Mayte Garcia autobiography are the only official books being released and don't get a mention.

Very odd indeed!

Here is a review by George Clinton:

“When it comes to funk and words, lyrics and language, there couldn’t be a better pairing than Ben Greenman and Prince. From my experience with both of them, this is the perfect match, like ham hocks and cornflakes.”

—George Clinton
