SOUL MAGAZINE says of THE STORY OF MOTOWN that "Benjaminson holds back nothing, sharing with the reader the thoughts and moods of the various figures who came and went during the early years.  He reflects both their enthusasim and their disillusionment, their talents and their failings, their beginnings and their fates fulfilled." 
 
THE SYRACUSE NEW TIMES, reviewing THE STORY OF MOTOWN, says "Right from the prologue, it's evident this isn't going to be a puff piece commissioned by Motown founder and president Berry Gordy, Jr.  Benjaminson, formerly a Detroit newspaper reporter, gives a frank appraisal of Gordy's life and his company...  [The book] goes a long way toward documenting and explaining the inherent racism in the music business, even showing how Gordy used it to his advantage in forging the immortal Motown Sound, the "sound of young America."
