This is Tom Adrahtas's second book, following up his well-reviewed biography of hockey goalie Glenn Hall, Glenn Hall, The Man They Call Mr. Goalie.
A lifelong Motown fan, Adrahtas was moved to write the book after seeing portrayals of Diana Ross that served to accentuate the sensational and negative, at a steep cost to her public perception.
"I don't think anyone has captured what Diana Ross has really meant in the world of entertainment historically," he contends. "I believe that its time she's received her due."
Adrahtas, 50, lives in the Chicago suburbs.
