I Feel Good: A Memoir of a Life of Soulby James Brown, Marc Eliot
James Brown has always been a fascinating, controversial figure. From his humble childhood in Georgia, he went on to change the face of American music with hit after hit on the R&B charts. And while he was a courageous public figure in a time of national strife and adversity, his personal life took many destructive turns, leaving a long and difficult path of redemption ahead of him. For the first time in well over a decade, he speaks candidly and at length about his tumultuous, incredible journey.
James Brown moves beyond his music and his much-publicized legal troubles to delve deeply into the highs and lows of his life.
