It's not a page turner!
on 17 February 2010
A nice book and a must read for all true MJ fans. Of course, Michael had a series of ghostwriters who had to be very careful to write about his life as he wanted the public to read it - and not necessarily exactly as it was. His split with his brothers, in his words, was more to do with circumstance than a desire to pursue a solo career. But if his official biographer is to be believed(J. Randy Taraborelli), then the opposite would have been true and Michael would have suffered no pangs in walking away from his brothers, despite their lifelong efforts to reunite with him. All the same, this is an insight into Michael's perspective of how his life had been led and the influences that helped shape him into the musician and performer that he became. Michael was a genious musically, a one-off who raised the bar in the world of pop and dancing. In this book he explains how he was always driven to create perfection in his work. This is his book about his life - and apparently he anguished as to whether it should be published or not because it had to be word perfect, so that he could release it to the world. Well, THIS IS IT!
Moonwalk, his book, his life, in his words - ghostwriters excepted! Not exactly riveting stuff - doesn't make you impatient to turn the page and read more - but worth having. Buy it for your MJ collection.
