"If you can write, that's great. If you can tell a story, that's even greater. But if you can work a resilient premise into both, you're worth digging to find."

Every Little Step by Bobby Brown


Synopsis: A Memoir of Bobby Brown’s Personal and Professional Musical Career.

Writing Style: 1st person Conversational.

Pacing: Fast. VERY Fast!

Premise: Getting to Know ‘the Real’ Bobby Brown.

Personal Highlights: The absolute best aspect of this memoir was seeing …and feeling Bobby’s love for family. Without spoiling the story, that ending…his words… touched me to the core. A salute is in order to Tyler Perry as well. This is the reason why it is so important to read books from the beginning to the end, and to echo the title, “every little step” in-between.

Other highlights were inputs from his family and those close to him. Malika impressed me, both by what I respect about strong women, and by her view of Bobby. His children impressed me too, Landon namely, and LaPrincia especially. Wow!

There is so, so much to comment on about this memoir. The pacing of what’s told, in perfect honesty… is proficiently saucy, what makes the pacing almost exceedingly brisk. It read as if the story was pre-recorded before going to print. It, as well, was hard to miss the images both Whitney and Bobby exuded in their music…and stage presence… ‘the sweet princess voice (that I personally loved)…and the original bad boy of R&B,’ exactly what carried over into their personal lives and inevitably became hard to separate from, regardless of their ‘intimate’ personas. Again, I can go on and on about this memoir. In a few words, I simply loved Every Little Step. Highly recommended. This memoir will very likely be among my top 10 best reads for 2016!
