That said, if you're interested in some behind-the-scenes stories of Prince's work in the studio, there are some interesting bits here. I've read much more informative takes on, say, the recording of "Kiss," in professional recording magazines. But this book is more comprehensive than that. And the author does try to walk the line between information of interest to Prince fans versus the more-technical information that is especially useful for recording engineers/producers. I wish the "author" (sorry, I can't bear to call him a writer) had erred more in favor of the latter group, but I might be in the minority there. But he does allow a lot of repetition and not-that-interesting info to fill space that could have been devoted to more substantive interviews.
In short, if the topic interests you, this is, unfortunately, probably the best book out there at the moment. (Especially given how private Prince is.) But, man, I wish it were so much better.

A factual journey through the musical career of one of the world's most compelling musicians.
I recommend this to anyone with no, some or a great deal of Prince knowledge.
