Product Description

Review

These recollections not only help fill in some of the biographical gaps in Jackson s life but demonstrate with unflinching detail the real-life price of fame. --Joseph Vogel, author of Man in the Music: the creative life & work of Michael Jackson

Format: Paperback
Remember The Time reads like a book that was written by formula. The material has been chosen and fashioned to sell books. It is presented to co-opt Michael Jackson fans, omitting coverage that would cause distress. Is that a bad thing? No, if it is honest rather than just manipulative and calculating. As someone else who has posted a review questioned, why is there not a single person who was affiliated with MJ who has endorsed or supported this book or even published a positive review using his/her name? No family member of MJ, no colleague, no relative, no collaborator, no friend, no associate, no employee has come forth to validate this book in any way. The only credible individual who has made a public statement about this book is the third bodyguard from the Las Vegas security group. Mike Garcia, who worked side-by-side with Whitfield and Beard, distanced himself from them early on, denied any connection to their book, and criticized their motives as greed and exploitation. According to Garcia, his two colleagues have "disrespected" Michael Jackson. However, they have seemingly done that in such a way as to ingratiate themselves with some MJ fans who are hungry to read something positive about him. Bottom line, by exposing MJ's private life and paradoxical details of his financial difficulties, they have provided roughage for the tabloids and the haters for months and years to come.

In Remember the Time, the two bodyguards have lost their credibility:
They used a very misleading, incorrect title – they were NOT with MJ “in his final days.”
They misrepresented themselves in their advertising and their book's description on Amazon & elsewhere. For example, they are NOT the “only men among 60 million fans who know what really happened to MJ." They don't know at all!
They lied about their public disclosures about MJ in the book to make themselves look like they betrayed him only a couple of times: they claim to have disclosed “only twice before” – on television in March 2010. In fact, however, they both also went public on TV in 2011 when they gave strong support to Conrad Murray -- declaring him "innocent" -- during his criminal trial for causing MJ 's death. They are trying to hide this fact, by lying, for obvious reasons. The vast majority of MJ fans would vehemently disagree with their advocacy of Murray.
What can be believed in this book when (1) the title, (2) the advertising, (3) the book's description, and (4) the self-description by the authors are lies?

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Helpful Advice TOP 50 REVIEWER on 6 Jun. 2014
Format: Hardcover
`Remember the Time' written by Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard is the latest of books which talk about the last days of the King of Pop, made by two of his bodyguards.

Michael Jackson attracted enormous attention when he was alive, there were not a single day when he was not followed in media, reporting about the most bizarre events in which he (supposedly) participated; therefore, in some way, media can also be blamed that his life ended in such a tragic end.

However, it seems that the situation is even worse after Jackson died, because now even those people who have only partially known him or seen him a few times are trying to make money on him; they all feel that they have the right to tell the world their truth, to tell their stories which of course are the only one truthful compared to all others.

As much as I loved this fantastic singer and read many books on the subject of his life, this book unpleasantly surprised me - it is understandable that there are out there people who wants to make money on him, but if that means violation of the unwritten laws that each should impede exposing personal, and even more important, inaccurate or semi-correct information, then it is very sad.

Unfortunately this is the case with this book, because both of these bodyguards are maybe not violating confidentiality contracts (though that is questionable as well) signed with Michael Jackson by releasing their book, but what is more interesting, these guys are also misrepresenting the amount of time that spent working for Michael Jackson - instead of 30 months, they spent 21 months, hence both of them didn't been in Neverland or been in touch with Jackson 8 full months before he died.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Eileen on 21 July 2014
Format: Paperback
This is a brief list of some of the weaknesses in Remember The Time;
1) profane and vulgar language throughout
2) intermittent patronizing attitude of the bodyguards toward MJ
3) boastful quality of the BGs' stories
4) inaccurate information [examples are cited in other reviews on Amazon]
5) ambiguity regarding MJ's death and the time preceding it
6) ending of the book seems to be incomplete and without closure
7) exaggerations of the bodyguards (elevating themselves to the level of his assistants & friends)
8) the men who were hired to keep MJ's life private have revealed his privacies to the world
9) idiosyncratic presentation of MJ's financial affairs
10) attempts to present themselves as "MJ's last bodyguards" in their title and advertising

It seems that these men may have been more a part of MJ's problem than his solution.
