Definitely made me want to listen to a lot of Motown music. I read this at the same time as The Song Machine: Inside the Hit Factory (Seabrook), and it was interesting to compare Motown as a "factory" to the modern hit factory, and the amount of control exerted over the music. Obviously as a children's book this didn't go too deeply into the darker side of that control - it presented Berry Gordy's control over Motown artists' work and lives in a pretty positive light.
