Nationwide ( -- Waldorf Publishing is excited to be releasing the new book Inside the Godfather (ISBN: 9781628477962) featuring never before told stories of James Brown by his inner circle. The book was written by Daryl Brown, the son of James Brown and Michael P. Chabries. If you think you know the soul truth about James Brown, think again!

Inside the Godfather is a history changing book, but most importantly, it sets the record straight about James Brown, the Godfather of Soul! The book tells stories that have NEVER been told. For example: Did you know that James Brown was once offered over ten million dollars to convert to a certain religion? Even more, Daryl Brown believes that his dad, James Brown, his brother-in-law and his older brother Teddy were actually murdered.

The inner circle includes, but is not limited to his mistress, his limo driver, the widow, the bodyguard, band members, personal physician, an arresting officer and many more!

The book, which can be pre-ordered now, will be available August 1st, 2014 as a paperback, eBook and audio book, and will feature unique photos - some of which have never been seen before. The book will be released simultaneously with the Universal Studios biographical film “Get on Up” produced by Mick Jagger and Brian Graze.

In author Daryl Brown’s own words: “How can Universal Studios distribute a movie about my dad without even talking to those that were closest to my dad including me?” He says that they have partnered with the VH1 Save The Music Foundation and The Fender Music Foundation, and that they will be donating 5% of all book proceeds to both foundations.

James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, may be the most misunderstood man in the last century. His contributions toward modern music pale in comparison to the role he played in modern history. Brown lifted all races toward the ideals of equality and opportunity. Tragically, while he had the ability to calm the storms of social turmoil - his personal life was a perpetual tempest; sex, drugs, rhythm & blues. 

Inside the Godfather brings together, for the first time, Brown’s inner circle. They will correct the distortions of the past and provide the reader a clear understanding of the brilliance and generosity that was James Brown. This book will have you question your assumptions about politics, religion, sports, money and the entire entertainment industry. You will see inside the man. You will never be the same.  

The name, James Brown is an international brand. His music is still being sold in over 110 countries. His face is certainly one of the most recognizable in the world, and he is loved and adored by millions. But how many people really knew him?

Daryl Brown comments, "Two hundred years from now when they mention James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, they will use this book to understand the person, the mind, the genius of one of the greatest entertainers of all time."
