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.

No. I was looking for an audiobook that captured the essence that MJ was. This book was the opposite; just a long list of cold, hard facts.
I'm of the opinion that most books on MJ are people milking the cash cow. What a shame.
Even if you're not a music fan, you were probably aware of Michael Jackson's musical greatest. Sure he was weird and eccentric, but I think that added to the mystic and the genius.
I've been a music lover all of my life, so I grew up on Michael Jackson music. It's sad that his life came to such a quick end (much of it he brought on himself), but his music will live on forever!
