It's a 96-page book with 12 chapters plus Introduction: <1> Early days; <2> Songs, Writing and LPS: with The Jacksons and The Jacksons, Solo, producing; <3> Showtime!!; <4> Fans & Friends, People and Places; <5> Movies; <6> Lifestyle, Psychology & Philosophy; <7> The Jackson Family; <8> Motown & Producers; <9> Video directors, Musicians and Management; <10> Management and Business Deals; <11> Celebrities; <12> 1993 Update. But only the first-40 pages (the first 3 chapters) could be referred as Michael Jackson's own words.. wait.. wait.. the author Catherine Dineen also puts her own words in brackets (opinion which often leads to un-supportivity).
For those who have read 'Moonwalk', this first part seems to be quite repetition of MJ's writings in 'Moonwalk'. MJ tried to correct a few things in 'Moonwalk' as well. Unfortunately it also seems like MJ's interviews and Dineen sometimes adds MJ's quotes from other media sources that seems in his different point of views. The only updates which could differentiate from 'Moonwalk' is its last 3 pages (don't forget.. with 3 full-page MJ's photos): '1993 update' containing mainly MJ's words on various well-known rumours on Oprah Winfrey Talkshow with Dineen's pros-cons writing style (imagine she valued MJ's black armband--his lifetime devotion to children in this planet, part of his outfit in the Talkshow, is rather sinister). The rests of this book are in THEIR own words. They are his parents, his siblings, his showbiz friends, his.. his.. his.. Some of their words are quite irritating. I have read 'moonwalk' a few times and would always read it again and again enjoying MJ's story-telling writing style.. but not with this book.
