Books about Prince??

http://princevault.com/in...bliography

Looks like Prince Vault has a great running tab of them. But I'd like to make sure if this a full list?

I can't tell you for sure but I'm not aware of any missing. Maybe some book in some obscure country or foreign language may have been overlooked, but I think everything in English is there.

Ok, thank you. I'll use this as complete reference then.

Many of these books are also reviewed on GoodReads.com, in case you wonder about their qualities.

Princevault is lacking several books.

The most complete list I've ever came across is from this Princeologist guy on Facebook:

I'm luckily to be friends with Michael Princeologist on Facebook. He has 5,000 friends, if you can't friend him, you MUST follow him at least. He is the most authoritative person I've ever seen or meet on Prince:

A great snapshot of Prince's career at his creative and commerical "peak" is Prince: A Pop Life by Dave Hill, circa 1990. It is out of print but a great, contemporaneous read.

I still have this. It is great. I have to say Prince: life & times by Jason Draper I found very impressive. I love Prince bios. He was always my favorite person to read about. I'm so glad I saved all my books about him.

Found out through Michael Princeologist Robertson on Facebook about another new book called Prince & the 1980s Reagan Age: Race, Gender, Sexuality, Class, Nation, & Popular Music's Transnational Routes coming out next year. Anyone have anymore info about this?
