I felt lucky during 2009 to have finally made it To Detroit and a visit to West Grand Boulevard home of Hitsville and a wonderful tour at the original studios. The guide does a wonderful job and he really interacts with the crowd. You get the feel for the atmosphere so much you almost sense the presence Of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations & The Four Tops or Marvin Gaye. I definitely recommend a visit to West Grand Boulevard to notice that nothing has changed in the 50 years since Berry Gordy bought Hitsville.[ Except the artists have now gone] The next best thing to Going to see the Museum is reading this book by Nelson George. There are other books but this one was written around 1985 and was very balanced and fair. Also, George clearly had done his homework in researching all the facts.My only criticisms with all the books I have read on motown is the lack of information on The Isley Brothers. I was a long time fan of them and it was odd how after they left Motown it was as if they had never ever recorded there. I saw them live in 1994 and they didn`t perform one Motown song.And so, to re-cap, great book , great museum in Detroit and brilliant Motown music. You could read the book on the Aeroplane to Detroit.

A very pleasant wander through the years of Motown, from the very early beginnings to the final implosion of the Motown sideshow, when the big stars became too big to care about their humble beginnings and deserted the man who gave them their big break. I don't know how true the facts are, but it is a well-written book and I enjoyed reading it.

Quite a lot of detail but not enough on the smaller names which are more popular these days.

Nelson George tells it how it was in the early days of motown and his investigating really shows its own in this book. There are things about motown the early days, that are not general knowlage but its thanks to books like this we are getting to find out.If you are truly a fan of motown then this is one book that I would recommend.
