Any recommendation on books about columbine?
I know of Dave Cullen's book and to take it a pinch of salt. I know he changed facts and such, but not what else I should be aware of when reading it. I want to read Randy Brown's book and I know he is very adamant that Eric killed Dylan then himself.

Many thanks in advance.

Randy is doddering and wrong about a great many things. I would take it with more salt than Cullen's book and I wouldn't disagree with taking his with some either.   Brooks's book is online: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I really think all the books make the error of thinking the cafeteria bombs jointly failed at 11:17, nor do any do the library massacre properly.  Several don't even have a section dedicated to it.

Jeff Kass's book is probably the best in English. Tim Krabbe's is probably the best period. But with the above caveats, and others I don't give so as not to ramble.

They're both inferior to the 11k, which is really the best answer.  

You can also see the list of the books on the wikipedia - I put them there.

I would recommend checking out the 'Columbine Books' section from here:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

'Columbine - A True Crime Story' by Jeff Kass is considered one of the best books available, and you can find it from that link. 'We Are but We Aren't Psycho' by Tim Krabbe has a slightly rough English translation but also some good insights on Columbine.

Also, it's not in that link above from what I can tell, but Rita Gleason's 'Evidence Ignored: What you May not Know About Columbine' and Daniel Mauser's 'Walking in Daniel's Shoes' are well-regarded as well.
