Through the years, the group's trademark razor-sharp choreography, finely tuned harmonies, and compelling vocals made them the exemplars of the Motown style.

Being a huge Temptations fan, this book was an essential read. Otis just tells it like he sees it, although in the updated version he explains how he held back to spare the others. I would love to see individual bios on all the guys. I am also very fortunate to have a signed copy!
I truly enjoyed this book written by Otis Williams the last surviving member of the Temptations. In no way did I find that he threw anyone under the bus in this book or degrade anyone. I read it in like four days, only because I was trying to pace myself. The book could have been a little more longer, but other wise than that I truly enjoyed reading it and would definitely recommend it to others. This a Wonderful book.
I liked it but it could have been better. It was a lot of this happened and then this and then this. I felt like it should have been longer bc many things were barely talked about and didn't make them sound as important.
Great history of this classic Motown quintet. He holds nothing back about the trials and personal heartaches the group and himself endure. David Ruffin was still living when the book was first published but Williams gets to update us about the true nature of Ruffin's troubles.
