Berry Gordy, musical visionary and the driving force behind Motown Records, chronicles his amazing success and lasting impact on the national and international musical landscape. In this abridgment of his autobiography, Gordy gives a credible performance as he narrates the major events in his life. His gravelly voice with a slight accent is pleasant. His reading clearly conveys the wide range of emotions he feels toward his triumphs and failures; this is a major advantage to the author reading his own words. While the book contains many pictures and photographs, this audio presentation is "illustrated" with more than a dozen musical excerpts from great Motown hits.
