Book Description

When the world heard the news on 25 June 2009 that Michael Jackson had died, it was both a shocking end to a cruelly curtailed and extraordinary life, and a not unexpected finale to a story that had been shot through with tragedy and darkness since its beginning. From his early success in the Jackson 5 as a young boy to becoming the self-styled King of Pop , Jackson lived his whole life in the limelight. Yet he once described himself as one of the loneliest people in the world and his personal life was a constant source of controversy, culminating in his very public fall from grace with his trial for sexual abuse and astonishing debts of $300 million. Millions of fans were looking forward to the 50 planned comeback concerts which were to be the triumphant happy ending to his story, but he died just weeks before they were due to take place. In this fascinating and eye-opening biography, Chas Newkey-Burden separates the man from the myth, unflinchingly examining the more contentious areas of his life while also celebrating the undeniable achievements of this undisputed musical genius. Michael Jackson Legend will honour the memory of a man who gave so much joy to so many millions around the world.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst buy on MJ so far 8 Sept. 2009
If I known what was in this book, I would not have bought it, ever! A lot of the information in the book comes from tabloids and journalists who are known for their dislike of MJ. I ripped the photo's out of the book and saved the cover image and threw the book itself away. "Just because you read it in a magazine, don't make it factual"

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 14 Jan. 2010
First of all I found several basic errors in this book, facts which should not be incorrect as any fan knows what is what, so obviously this author has never met Michael and is depending on other "biographers" work to write this book. If you are a new Michael Jackson fan then I would not recommend this book if you are trying to find out who Michael was as a person.
