On July 25, 2009, breaking news revealed that Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, was dead. Fans and the media watched in shock as the story unfolded: doctors had lost the battle to save him after he had collapsed from a heart attack. In a cruel twist of fate, he had passed away before he got the chance to make his final curtain call in the form of 50 planned sell-out shows at London's O2 Arena.
From a very young age, Michael's exceptional musical talent was clear. He stood apart from his four brothers when they performed together as the Jackson 5 and, in 1974, he embarked upon what was to become a monumental solo career.
A string of chart-busting albums and singles followed, with the Thriller album selling 47 million copies worldwide and yielding seven top-10 singles. It is belived that, in his lifetime, he sold around 750 million records, making him one of the most successful entertainers ever.
This in-depth and affectionate biography traces the rise of the man, from child prodigy to tortured megastar. It is the definitive portrait of a pop legend whose strange and brilliant life will never be forgotten.

I love MJ
The guy that reads the book sounds irritating I think I'd rather buy the actual book probably cheaper aswell
Quick print - fine for what it is.
The book is ok for a tribute. But getting the date of MJ's death is shocking it was June 25th. Anyway the voice gets a little annoying but it ok to listen to.
For a good read the OPUS & Moonwalker is great and Katherine's book is enjoyable too. Plus MJ's estate gets money from these. But this is an ok book, better in hardcopy.
I just love the name MJ
