By Stephen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book does not claim to be a definitive guide to all things body language or all things Michael Jackson. It is an analysis of several interviews conducted with Michael, by an experienced body language expert, offering his opinion on the non-verbal comunication shown by Michael during the conversations. The opinions expressed are subjective and sometimes contradictory, but the author himself acknowledges that interpretation of non-verbal communication is not always an exact science.

The book is a series of observations by one person, based on research conducted by several other people, viewing the behaviour of another person thrown into settings that would not be considered natural. However this is not a scientific text, nor does it profess to be.

Bearing all of that in mind, the book is an accessible and entertaining read that serves as a good demonstration of the practical application of body language observation. It is light enough to be an easy read and detailed enough to arouse the curiousity of anyone with knowledge of body language. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Michael? You'll be grateful for this book 2 July 2014
Format:Paperback
With so much mystery, myth, and confusion surrounding Michael Jackson, this book is a refreshing look at what Michael Jackson was really saying in his interviews. It is short, and will only take you a couple of evenings to finish the book, but it is well worth the read, whether you are a "moonwalker," or whether you have a casual interest in body language. I have learned a lot about this silent language despite the book only being 178 pages long.

I have to wonder why this book hasn't made a bigger dent in the accusations against Michael Jackson. Perhaps people think body language is unreliable and easily manipulated; perhaps people decided long ago that he was guilty, and nothing will persuade them. Certainly, people seem to turn away, scoff, and make some offensive remark when the topic of Michael Jackson comes up. They close their minds and their hearts, and this is a shame. In a world full of ignorance, we need more people willing to look at the evidence without prejudice and without judgement. We need people like Craig James Baxter.

If you're worried that Craig James Baxter might be biased, a closet "moonwalker" who will bend the truth to suit his needs, don't. There are moments in the book where Michael is perceived to be lying, which may upset some fans. However, where the child abuse allegations are concerned, Michael is perceived to be 100% honest - his body language hints at no deception. The 1994 statement, 1996 police interview, and 2003 Living with Michael Jackson interview are covered in detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite books! 23 April 2013
By Ellen
Format:Kindle Edition
This book provides another perspective on Michael Jackson and much of the controversy around him in his lifetime. With interesting theory on body language, you find yourself learning new things every page you read, showing what a worthwhile read it is! It is easy to read and is perfect if you just want to relax with a book, whether you're a massive Michael Jackson fan or whether you're just interested in the theory behind human body language (such as myself!). Definitely worth a read, thanks CJB for such a fascinating book! I look forward to further additions to my book collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 7 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
will you post I had my reservations before reading this. I was a big fan on Michael Jackson and didn't want to read anything bad (hee hee) about him. Thankfully this book shows you what kind of man Michael really was. I always thought that `body language' was like a pseudoscience, but it's quite amazing what gestures and expressions really mean. I really enjoyed this; I hope the author does another book like this. Lance Armstrong would be an interesting read. on the UK listing of MJ

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST Read For Doubters, Cynics and Haters. 17 Jan. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Being already very familiar with CJB Baxters YouTube body language analysis videos in relation to Michael Jackson interviews, I knew I was in for a treat with this book.

However,it was far more than just a treat,it was both an emotional and exhilarating read from start to finish and I had it finished in 2 hours,I genuinely could not put it down.

What he does is he invites you to understand not just Michael Jacksons body language but the poor interview skills displayed by Oprah Winfrey and Martin Bashir, which then brings about new understanding of why Michael responded to the media the way he did over the years, and how his rapport with the interviewer inevitably dictated his responses. Its clear Michael was in a reactionary position alot of the time, which says to me that he was almost interrogated and not interviewed

I found it an extremely emotional read also because neither of these two main interviews of Michael Jacksons career delved into his genius,his talent,his history making,his changing of the music industry,his revolutionary short films,his art,his creativity,his song writing,his energy....what made him tic,what inspired him,what were his creative processes...they chose to bombard him with irrelevant tabloid fodder and missed completely the point of his existence on this planet, this really hit home from reading this book.

Its easy to say that this is a must have for Michael Jackson fans because in fact this book is a must have really for the doubters, the haters, the people that just throw out there that he was a monster with no other contribution to our lives.

Nicely written, simole to grasp,both devastating and exhileraring,i love and i have been completely inspired by it.
