Editorial Reviews

Review

Cold Sweat brought tears to my eyes as I read the powerful story of Yamma’s journey. James Brown carried the gift of music that comes from God but also the burden of a life lived on the mountaintop. This book makes the price he paid all too clear.” —MC Hammer


“This is a provocative, painful, and open book by Yamma Brown, whom I have known all her life as the daughter of a truly historic and incomparably influential figure. The world knew James Brown as a Godfather. Yamma knew him as a father. The good and the bad that she shared does not dim at the brightness of the greatness of James Brown.” —Rev. Al Sharpton


“Yamma’s riveting book sent chills down my spine, as I understand the experience of having to share a parent with the world. Her relationship with her father reveals insights into the depths of his spirit, and her profound perspective is a viewpoint unlike anyone else’s.” —Maryum “May May” Ali, daughter of Muhammad Ali


“A heartwarming and authentic account of growing up the daughter of a true music legend. So well written and engaging that it should be required reading in all schools of music.” —Cathy Hughes, founder, Radio One


“A raw and honest depiction of life behind the shadow of Yamma Brown’s iconic father. This is a must read. I am truly honored to know Yamma and so proud of the bravery she’s shown by sharing her story.” —Heather Hayes, daughter of Isaac Hayes
