Publisher Description

So much has now been said and written about the life and career of Michael Jackson that it has become almost impossible to disentangle the man from the myth. Recent revelations are only the latest instalments of a saga that began decades ago. This book is the fruit of over 30 years of research and hundreds of exclusive interviews with a remarkable level of access to the very closest circles of the Jackson family - including Michael himself. Cutting through tabloid rumours, J. Randy Taraborrelli traces the real story behind the Michael Jackson we see and hear today, from his drilling as a child star through the blooming of his talent to his ever-changing personal appearance and bizarre publicity stunts. This major biography includes the behind-the-scenes story to many of the landmarks in Jackson's life: his legal and commercial battles, his marriages to Lisa Marie Presley and Debbie Rowe, his passions and addictions, his children. Objective and revealing, it carries the hallmarks of all of Taraborrelli's best-sellers: impeccable research, brilliant storytelling and definitive documentation.

Amazing Book!!!

This book is a MUST for MJ fans! It really goes into detail about Jackson’s life, the early days, the Jackson 5 and more! Even the sample contains A LOT of information about Michael and his brothers in the early days of the Jackson 5, I mean 123 PAGES?!?! It took me 3 days to read that, and it gives you information about interviews, emotional moments in Jackson’s life, and.. well I can’t put it into words it’s just AMAZING! And you can’t read this book without feeling sorry for Michael in his early days.. Man.. the things Michael’s father did.. All in all I recommend this book 11/10!

Good book

I have this book at home and this is a bargain mine cost a lot more than the iBook. J Randy Tarraborelli is a great author and gives a lot of details about his life that most people wouldn't know especially about his childhood. People miss understand MJ. Listen to the song childhood by MJ it is a really sad, autobiographical song about MJ's childhood. Michael said to listen to it. R.I.P. MJ aka the king of pop we will never stop loving you.
