In his opening note to readers of Diana Ross in Central Park - A 25th Anniversary Retrospective, John William Law states he helped author a best seller entitled The Diana Ross & The Supremes Trivia Challenge. So far so good. However, the text in this slim volume runs only 146 pages long, and Law doesn't get to describing the actual Central Park concert until page 63. The information that is contained is type set in large print and doubled spaced, perhaps a nod to Miss Ross' aging fan base, whose eye sight may be failing.
Once the author gets to describing the actual concert, things get interesting for Ross fans seeking facts all in one place. Frankly the text of this book would have been more relevant as a booklet as part of a DVD release of the two concerts.
Upon closer examination, this publication resembles books found in school libraries for elementary children. That in itself is not a bad thing. In fact, searching the net for information on the Aplomb Publishing Company I discovered that they are committed to encouraging the creativity and poise all children possess. As well, 10% of the proceeds from the sale of their products is donated to the Drake House in Roswell, Georgia. The Drake House provides a safe haven for mother's and their children as they face the challenge of finding permanent shelter.
The fact that Diana Ross cut the City of New York a personal check for $250,000 for the construction of the children's playground in her name in Central Park brings the book to a child friendly conclusion.
As well, on the Aplomb website, I found several podcasts devoted to opinions on various Diana Ross recordings which will be somewhat interesting to casual and hardcore fans.

I love everything having to do with Diana Ross! I'm a huge fan for many years. The problem with this book is that the whole thing is in black and white, no color photos...and of course, we all know how much more beautiful, Ms. Ross is in color. I've never seen anything written about her in this type of format.

This is an account of the two Central Park concerts at the height of Diana Ross's fame. There is nothing new in this book. Alot of money for the content.

this book was a real disapointment...just a rehash of magazine and book accounts. I was hoping for some inside scoops...pretty lame...not even interesting photos...thumbs down...
