I'm far from an expert on Welles books. But I always thought that the Leaming book had its pro-Welles view because it was the only bio Welles ever authorized.

The CD box set offers you not just Orson Welles' own words, but the flavor of his friendship with Peter Bogdanovich. In addition, much of the material on the CD's is different than that found in the book.

I second the recommendations others have made in this thread. I just wanted to add that Frank Brady's biography, Citizen Welles, is out of print, unfortunately, since I consider it one of the most even-handed of the books about Welles. However, you might find a copy in your public library.
