Goebbels: A Biography is a 2015 book by Peter Longerich. The book presents an account and analysis of the life of Nazi leader Joseph Goebbels, based on the diary he kept from 1923 to 1945. It is an English translation of the 2010 German book Goebbels: Biographie by Longerich.[1][2]

Goebbels' estate sued publisher Random House, because the book quotes excerpts from his diaries without paying royalties to his estate.[3]
