For many like myself who are not Motown educated or were simply not born into that era, the life and times of the Motown stars, is a perfect to increase your knowledge as it is filled with all the history that made Motown what they are today. Classic artists such as Herman Griffins and The Four Tops are featured in the book as they were on the label. You will find reading their contributions and achievements followed by pictures that tell their stories captivating.

Although the 521 pages are a lot to take in it’s a perfect keep sake for all the Motown music loving fans.
