Publisher's Summary

James Brown, The Godfather of Soul, may be the most misunderstood man in the last century. Confusion emerges as a consequence of the complexities in his life. His contributions toward modern music pale in comparison to the indispensable role he played in modern history. Brown lifted all races toward the ideals of equality and opportunity. Tragically, while he had the ability to calm the storms of social turmoil - his personal life was a perpetual tempest; sex, drugs, rhythm & blues.

Inside the Godfather brings together, for the first time, those from Brown's inner circle. They will correct the distortions of the past and provide for the listener a clear understanding of the brilliance and generosity that was James Brown, Mr. Dynamite. This audiobook will have you question your assumptions about politics, religion, sports, money, and the entire entertainment industry. You will see inside the man. You will never be the same.

Let us pull back the curtain. It is time to enjoy the show.

Great Read

The narrator was good except for his impressions. Liked how the author presented different people's accounts. Gives a glimpse of James brown that most were never told about.
