Beautiful, but inaccurate!
on 13 September 2009
I took one look at this book and knew I must have it! But having taken it home and sat down to read and look at the wonderful pictures of Michael's life. I was disappointed to see in the first few lines a mistake that as a avid fan I cannot accept. The mistake was the date of his passing. The author had it down as July 2009 and any true fan knows that Michael Jackson died on the 25th June. It makes me wonder if you can't even get the date of his death right, what other information is actually correct or just made up because you can't be bothered to research the correct details.
I was very disappointed and will be trying to get my money back for this mistake alone.
It may be trivial to some people and they may feel like the pictures make up for the mistake, but it feels to me that this book rather than trying to give a respectful account of Michael and his life is only interested in cashing in on one of the most gifted musicians of my life.
I would say spend your money eslewhere. Where the person writing knows his subject or is aleast a fan!
