Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, if they were interested in Prince on an analytical level the way I am. It covers all bases and does so passionately but objectively
What other book might you compare Dig If You Will the Picture to and why?
Prince by Ronin Ro comes closest, but that's due to subject.
What does Peter Berkrot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He was a good reader, no complaints from me. He didn't "bring it to life" but it's not that kind of book.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me reflective and helped me realize how much Prince impacted me and pop culture in general
Any additional comments?
My only gripe with this book is that it labels Prince homophobic when in both instances he was completely objective and not at all insulting to gays. He didn't want to collab with MJ and the bible does say S&G was destroyed for homosexuality, it doesn't make Prince phobic for pointing that out anymore than it makes one racist for reading Uncle Toms Cabin. If you're looking for a tell-all gossip laden book or chronological bio this isn't it, but it incorporates enough of both elements to make it a great all around read. Lastly, you can tell the guy loves Prince, but rather than a love that blinds him to the negative truths about Prince, it's a love that makes him seek for the truth however unfortunate.

This book is very well written by an author who has a very detailed understanding of Prince's work.
