Finally, an accurate and meaningful writing about this icon. It is clear that unlike previous books, the writer has no axe to grind, to wit: Mary Wilson, nor is he pursuing fortune and fame as did Tarabelli. This is a warm account of Diana Ross's career and impact she has had on the listene and on music and entertainment history. The book is intelligently and well written, with enough personal accounts from fans, to make it really come to life. BRAVO! Tom Adrahtas! Bravo!
