Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Remember the Time: protecting Michael Jackson in his final days (Kindle Edition)
I want to thank the authors for writing this book. As a fan it is sometimes difficult to read, he really seemed to have given up on things after the trial but it was nice to hear that he still cared about us, the fans. It was so sad to hear that his fame made him a virtual prisoner, he just wanted to do normal everyday things but it was impossible. I felt that it was very honestly written and they obviously cared for him a great deal. I don't feel the authors have betrayed him in any way, they just want to give an honest account of his final few years which I was very interested to read about as you hear so many stories of what was going on around him. A definite must read for any true fan of MJ.

Both of these bodyguards are violating their confidentiality contracts with Michael Jackson by releasing this book.
Both are violating required confidentiality regarding Prince, Paris, and Blanket - all MINORS.
MJ's young children are very vulnerable to betrayal, exploitation, and embarrassment. Paris attempted suicide in June 2013, partly because of painful media intrusion into her private life. The children's guardians have not approved these bodyguards' public disclosures about MJ's children.
William Whitfield bragged on Good Morning America on March 10/11, 2010, that he had "kept Michael Jackson's financial records." He would be divulging this private and confidential information in his book about MJ.
These bodyguards are revealing private information in spite of the undisputed fact that their paid jobs for him required that they keep this information private and confidential.
These bodyguards are revealing private information and events about Michael Jackson, his family members, and his minor children for the SOLE PURPOSE of making money on their betrayals, many of which will be detrimental, damaging, and embarrassing to the Jacksons.
Theirs is the ultimate betrayal of their employer MJ, whose primary goal for them was to keep his personal life safe & private.

"Very honestly written"? "An honest account"? Hardly!
These bodyguards have taken great license with the truth! For example, they have inflated the time that they spent in service to MJ and his children by A LOT. They did not follow MJ to Los Angeles but stayed in Vegas, which means that they were with MJ way less than 2-1/2 years -- MAYBE 20 months. There are various levels of significance in their lying about this significant piece of information, because they had NO CONTACT with MJ for the last 8 months of his life, including ALL of 2009. The Conrad Murray trial documents verify who his security personnel were in Los Angeles, and these guys were NOT! Thus, "Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days" should probably be "Remember our Fantasies: Lacking Contact with Michael Jackson in His Last 8 Months"! Their boast that they are the "only ones" among MJ's 60 million fans who know "what really happened to him" is bizarre at the least and fraudulent at worst. Their strong public support of Conrad Murray during CM's criminal trial and afterward is proof that either they don't know anything about what happened to MJ -- how he died -- or that they don't care. They have chosen Murray over MJ and yet pretend to be his "friends." You can see their 11/4/11 performance on Good Morning America on Hulu. It will be eye-opening for you! Pretenders....

I didn't see anything wrong with the bodyguards appearance on GMA, which I've known about for a long time. I'm just happy that this is a positive book for people to read with no salacious allegations. They only wanted to protect him and his family. What's so wrong with wanting to tell the world what he was really like and that he wasn't some weirdo with a penchant for little boys like some seem determined to prove. Yes people will do anything for money but when it's as positive as this book I can forgive them.
