However,it was far more than just a treat,it was both an emotional and exhilarating read from start to finish and I had it finished in 2 hours,I genuinely could not put it down.
What he does is he invites you to understand not just Michael Jacksons body language but the poor interview skills displayed by Oprah Winfrey and Martin Bashir, which then brings about new understanding of why Michael responded to the media the way he did over the years, and how his rapport with the interviewer inevitably dictated his responses. Its clear Michael was in a reactionary position alot of the time, which says to me that he was almost interrogated and not interviewed
I found it an extremely emotional read also because neither of these two main interviews of Michael Jacksons career delved into his genius,his talent,his history making,his changing of the music industry,his revolutionary short films,his art,his creativity,his song writing,his energy....what made him tic,what inspired him,what were his creative processes...they chose to bombard him with irrelevant tabloid fodder and missed completely the point of his existence on this planet, this really hit home from reading this book.
Its easy to say that this is a must have for Michael Jackson fans because in fact this book is a must have really for the doubters, the haters, the people that just throw out there that he was a monster with no other contribution to our lives.
Nicely written, simole to grasp,both devastating and exhileraring,i love and i have been completely inspired by it.
I found this book via Mr Baxter's youtube channel, and I was not disappointed.
It explains the various tics and traits we all have, and by stripping back this behemoth of a star he becomes a man like any other, embarrassed, shy, angry, ashamed, happy and yes, telling the occasional fib.
I'd advise anyone, fan yes but definitely non-fan, to read this, these are signals we cannot hide or fake, THIS is the closest you'll ever get to knowing Michael Jackson, and I personally think the world needs to know him rather than the freak they tried to make him into.
The book is a series of observations by one person, based on research conducted by several other people, viewing the behaviour of another person thrown into settings that would not be considered natural. However this is not a scientific text, nor does it profess to be.
Bearing all of that in mind, the book is an accessible and entertaining read that serves as a good demonstration of the practical application of body language observation. It is light enough to be an easy read and detailed enough to arouse the curiousity of anyone with knowledge of body language. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Mr. Baxter says as he sees (literally) and I honestly believe that he doesn't let his own thoughts and feelings cloud his opinions.
It is fantastic to have someone like Mr. Baxter write this book, as the conclusions he reaches are vindication of what Mike's fans have known all along - ergo, MJ's total honesty and complete innocence of the scurrilous charges and accusations brought against him.
Well done and thank you!
I enjoyed it thoroughly and I wish people would have all read the book rather than judge Michael!
