When I began to read this i wasnt sure what i was expecting.. being a huge Mj fan i read loads of books about him and they all say exactly the same thing also they usually focus on the Motown days.. how he became a star.. which does get tiring after a while as they come up with nothing new :/
This book actually shows the world what Michael was actually like.. a cheeky, fun loving, imperfect guy :) Yes the book has the bad times, but would it be the truth if it didnt? Michael is always either sugar coated in books and portrayed as a monster (of course he wasnt) in the media where as My Friend Michael actually has the best of both. You learn about the funny experiences of what Michael and Frank had together. The book really is exactly what it says in the title, My FRIEND Michael. Frank tells it from his point of view and nothing else, he explains what he saw and says what his opinion was of it.. this also gives chance for the reader to do the same thing. If you are going to read this book expect to laugh out loud, cry.. and.. kiss the corner of the book... read it to get what i mean hehe
Anyway, if you honestly think that this book is only for Frank to 'cash in' on Michael I really think you are wrong (so stop listening to the media). It is shown that he was a true friend of Michaels who dearly loved him. His loyality is obvious throughout the book and throughout his friendship with Michael even if some demons got in the way. Learn some truths about some of the people around Michael for example John McClain who is now the executor of Michaels estate..
5* and great buy for any Mj fan :)
