It's well put together, interesting and if you listen to some tracks after reading this book, you will pick out more of Jamerson's basslines, Benjamin's drumbeats and even Berry himself on the piano! I had images of the Snakepit, of the behind closed doors meetings (on what was in and out following the non-stop recording sessions) and I feel it has enriched my appreciation of the wonder of Motown.
Highly recommended to avid fans and casual followers alike.
