Synopsis: "I see a world of beauty and perfection, and I strive through my music to spread that vision, to help make this planet we call home a better, more desirable place for us to love one another, to procreate, and to keep our spirits renewed."

In his much anticipated memoir, Barry White, the international pop and R&B legend whose music has carried countless couples from first kisses to the walk down the aisle, takes his legendary singing voice from the airwaves to the page.

With honesty, warmth, and his signature sensuality, White recounts his rough road to superstardom and shares his deepest feelings and wise philosophy. Born into the tough streets of South Central Los Angeles to a single mother, Barry ran with the "oldest, baddest, and most envied" gang and was hooked on fighting, drinking, and stealing when he wound up in Juvenile Hall at age sixteen. While behind bars, he had a life-shaking epiphany that changed the direction of his life. From that moment on Barry vowed to get and stay on a straight, hardworking path and fulfill his dream of making music. He dropped out of school and literally walked to Hollywood to make his fortune.

Love Unlimited follows Barry from his hungry years as a jack of all trades, struggling to support a wife and four small children, to his first professional gig in the music business as a talent spotter; from his breakthrough producing the girls he named Love Unlimited to his own emergence into the international spotlight as a producer, songwriter, and singer renowned for his deep bass and gift for articulating the needs and desires of both men and women. At every step, the Maestro offers heartfelt reflections on self-pride and perseverance, the bonds of family and friendship, the key elements to keeping a lover happy, and the true meaning of ecstasy.

Barry also explores the relationships that have inspired him--from his profound love of his mother, who bought him his first piano, his brother, who didn't have music to save him, his love Glodean, and his children, to his ultimate love, Lady Music. He also discusses his relationships with such legends and luminaries as Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Muhammed Ali, and Maxine Waters.

Featuring intimate, behind-the-scenes photographs, a complete discography, and some of his favorite lyrics, Love Unlimited is Barry's ultimate love song for his fans.

Review: Barry White is not a man who does things half-heartedly. When he loves, he loves with his whole being; when he makes music, he pulls out all the stops; and when he writes his autobiography, he packs it full of life lessons, explanations of the inspiration behind his songs, and meditations on the nature of Love. Though he authored this book with writing partner Marc Eliot, fans of White's lyrics will not be disappointed by Love Unlimited's prose style. "The power in my music comes from the way I try to deliver what I believe is the power of love," White explains, "All of my songs essentially give out the same message, from me to you--I am, you are, and it is." Though Love Unlimited covers White's gangbanger youth and brief stint in juvenile detention, his essential, positive outlook keeps him from dwelling too long on the bad times--he's much more effusive about his lifelong affair with Lady Music. It is in regard to White's human affairs that the book delivers its real surprises--a man who has earned the nickname "Guru of Love" and who routinely has house keys mailed to him by adoring fans might be justified in a few racy escapades, but White portrays himself as a family man and even a bit of a homebody, preferring to devote himself to one special lady at a time. Overall, White comes off as an immensely likable, stand-up guy who just happens to have a god-given ability to talk to women. (Even as a teen, he played Cyrano for his brother's phone calls to young women and counseled neighborhood couples in trouble.) You too may benefit from the deeply romantic, common-sense advice White sprinkles throughout the book. So run yourself as bubble bath, light some scented candles, put on your favorite Barry White album, and sink in to Love Unlimited. --Ali Davis
