Informed by extensive interviews with Pickett's family, friends, and collaborators, and illustrated with never-before-seen personal photographs, the book includes fascinating insights into the careers of Pickett's contemporaries, including James Brown, Ike and Tina Turner, Otis Redding, and Bobby Womack.
