I hope someone here reads it and gives a review. I am hesitant to buy yet another bio when I own 7 already.

Judging from the sample pages on Amazon each paragraph is a quick recap of a certain event. Kinda like somebody reciting endless lists of facts. What I read I found pointless to anyone who has read a decent Prince bio. Invest your time and money and effort in Duane Tudahl's and Per Nilsen's and Alex Hahn's books, all of which offer far better insight into Prince than this.

If you really want to know about all the Prince books - old or new - just follow this guy on Facebook:

He just added at least 3 new ones I've never seen before.

Thanks, I will pass on this book, then. I have DMSR and The Rise of Prince; I'm still looking for an affordable copy of Possessed.
