The ending is a cliff hanger. It doesn't tie everything into a bow. Great story though

Jermaine Jackson—older than Michael by four years—offers a keenly observed and surprisingly candid memoir tracing Michael’s life starting with their shared childhood and extending through the Jackson 5 years, Michael’s phenomenal solo career, his loves, his suffering, and his tragic end which sparked worldwide grief. It is a sophisticated, no-holds-barred examination of the man, aimed at fostering a true and final understanding of who he was, why he was, and what shaped him.

Jermaine Jackson Sr does not read the book it's his oldest son Jermaine Jr ,doing the reading. He does not have the high pitch quiet voice that most people are use from the Jackson family, so that will take you back a bit. The beginning of the book is his years with the brother as the J-5 , which is informative and enjoyabe. The second half of the book is the last 20 years of his brother life, which is all research which is sad. Also Jermaine is the brother who is with the women who has children by both him and his younger brother Randy and that part of his life is not part of this book which is when the research is going on.. All other wives and girl friends are discussed. The reseach part you can find in any other Michael Jackson book on the table.

Colin Powell is the embodiment of the American dream. He was born in Harlem to immigrant parents from Jamaica. He knew the rough life of the streets. He overcame a barely average start at school. Then he joined the Army. The rest is history - including Vietnam, the Pentagon, Panama, and Desert Storm - but a history that until now has been known only on the surface.

If you want to listen to this book dont listen to Obamas first, as a narrator we were suprise to hear how mild manner Mr Powell is. We thought General , deep voice. What suprised me about this book is how matter of fact he was . He would talk about his career and then stick something about his family in there or vice versua . I had to go back sometime to get what or who he was referring to. I listened to Obama book first and he has a great voice but he has not lived a great life yet. General Colin Powell has.
