This book should have stuck to its title, "A Life in Pictures" 25 Feb. 2011
By LisaS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is beautifully illustrated. I finally purchased a book about Michael Jackson with quite a few photos of Michael I had not seen before. However, some of the dates that accompany the photos are questionable, others are plain wrong! For example, on page 56 the photo "overleaf" states, "1971 Michael aged 17". Michael turned 17 in 1975. Also, the photos on pages 86 and 87 are dated 1986, but these photos are from the 1990's or perhaps even from MJ's 30th Anniversary Concert in 2001. Either way, these photos are not from 1986.

These glaringly obvious errors made me wonder about the accuracy of the "stories" at the beginning of this book. As an unwaveringly loyal fan of Michael Jackson's for 18 years, I felt a lot of what was written at the beginning of the book was unnecessary, particularly with regard to Michael's children.

This book would have been much more enjoyable without the author's opinion of Michael and his life. I found some of it hard to read. Why do we need to keep reading about the 2005 court case for which Michael was found NOT GUILTY? Why couldn't the author celebrate the joy MJ brought his fans through his music and dancing? And why is there barely a mention of Michael's humanitarian efforts? Also, the author constantly makes comments about Michael's psychological state. If he was so "damaged" then why are his children happy, polite, well-adjusted young people?

A great book for the pictures, but a let down with the errors and, what I feel, is disrespectful writing about Michael. I would recommend MJ fans buy this book for the photos, but do not bother reading the beginning. It makes interesting reading if you know nothing of the legend that is Michael Jackson, but talking about the paternity of his children and the court case that almost ruined him is in extremely poor taste!!!

One of the Best Books on Michael 4 Mar. 2010
By Marilyn Cain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I do believe that I have purchased everything that has been written on Michael, and I must say that I enjoyed this book tremendously: so much so that it is now one of my favorites. It was very well written and the authors were very careful to bring depth to the facts of Michael's life. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and honestly it was very difficult to put it down. The first section is about Michael's life, and then the rest of it has some really awesome pictures of Michael. I would highly recommend purchasing this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

A valuable book for MJ fans! 11 July 2010
By Minh Hang T. Vu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am very please to have owned this book. It is a very beautiful, informative book with lots of beautiful texts and pictures of Michael printed on quality paper with a nice hardcover. There is a close-up image of Michael's face (in a recent year) which to me is just so dear that just makes me want to love and miss Him even more... I love Michael and I love this book, that all I want to say, to share and let the world knows that We Are Not Alone!
(Please excuse me for my limited English writing skill, thanks!)

MICHAEL JACKSON A LIFE IIN PICTURES 31 Jan. 2010
By TAB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
THIS BOOK IS AN INCREDIBLE REVIEW OF THE LIFE OF THE MOST TALENTED MAN OF OUR TIME. WHAT A LIFE MICHAEL JACKSON WAS BLESSED WITH, IT IS ONE THAT MOST CAN ONLY DREAM ABOUT. THE BOOK IS A DISPLAY OF MICHAEL'S GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND THE TRIALS HE ENDURED. HAVING GROWN UP IN NORTHRN INDIANA DURING THE SAME TIME AS MICHAEL IT BROUGHT BACK ALOT OF MEMORIES OF THE DREAMS WE ALL HAD DURING THIS PERIOD IN HISTORY. MICHAEL AND THE JACKSON 5 LIVED OUR DREAM AND GAVE US ALL HOPE OF A BRIGHTER TOMORROW. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK, IF YOU ARE A TRUE FAN OF MICHAEL JACKSON IT IS A VALUED TREASURE.
