Has anyone of you ever read a DM biography book?

I was searching through the options on Goodreads, and I found 2 — 3 books, but I don’t know which one I should look into. I am between:

* [Stripped](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/443962.Stripped?from_search=true&search_version=service) by Jonathan Miller.
* [Black Celebration](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/812861.Depeche_Mode?from_search=true&search_version=service) by Steve Malins
* [Depeche Mode: A Biography](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/19644410-depeche-mode?from_search=true&search_version=service) by Steve Malins
* [Depeche Mode: Monument](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/19047331-depeche-mode?from_search=true&search_version=service) by Dennis Burmeister

The latter is a bit off my price range, but I will save if it’s worth it.

  • Stripped is extremely thorough, and almost encyclopedic. I’ve heard someone else refer to it as the DM Bible. I found it to be too dense to read through from beginning to end, and instead ended up skipping between eras related to my favorite albums to discover more information about those time periods. Definitely worth the purchase. I haven’t read the others.

  • I read Steve Malins biography, and enjoyed it very much. What was new for me when reading it, was to see the relationships between the albums in a new way.

    It may not be as comprehensive as Miller’s book, but to me, that was fine.

  • Monument is an awesome book, with a ton of gorgeous photos. Well worth the money if you ask me. You could always get the e-book, that’s cheaper I believe

  • I have read parts of monument because it was able to look at it at a book store I was at (but since like you said it is expensive as hell) I didn’t buy it. But what I have seen was aewsome!
