If you are a die hard Prince fan, this book is a very interesting read. It gives you insight into his life as it conincided with his music career. If you are a music lover, it will get into all things creative in the ways Prince put his music together, his work ethic, and his emotionality in his creativity. This book is not a "biography," but it is a carefully researched book about the life in the music of this creative genius.

Okay book about the life of Prince, parts are quite well written, but lacks the punch of Alex Hahn's possessed or heartfulness of Liz Jones's Slave to the rhythm. Offers little new and gets gossipy towards the end. Not to say its a bad book, the author knows the musical output well and his reviews of the music are succint. A worthwhile but not essential release. Not one for the newbies, but essential buying for the completist and a casual read for the average fan.

It's interesting to read different authors views about Prince.
This is definitely one of those good books you can't put down.
If you're a true Prince fan this book makes for good reading.

Good. Some new stuff on Prince's early life. Best about this bk, though, is the look at post-2000 Prince, as this latter period is both confusing and not particularly well-documented, usually. Draper does a good job, though.

If you have purchased any other Prince bio, SKIP this one. I just finished and was disappointed to find so much that is incorrect, including the names of releases (and unreleased) For example, one album was titled the Rockhouse Garden NOT Roundhouse. I thought that I was picking up more info as many bios stay away from the post 80's but the information about his work in the 80's was so poorly written (he jumps back and forth and then repeats again which to the average fan would be confusing) that I don't know which information to believe. He mentions the PMRC and how it made him more tame during his Purple Rain tour, however PMRC would not be formed until that following August, the tour ended months before that controversy would happen. Also I WAS THERE during the 80's as a fan all through current material and several tours (7) I feel like he read others material on Prince and made his own conclusions. This book is a mess. Don't waste your time.
