Description

In this #1 New York Times bestseller, Michael Jackson tells the story of his life, in his words.

In this intimate and often moving personal account of Michael Jackson’s public and private life, he recalls a childhood that was both harsh and joyful but always formidable. Michael and his brothers played amateur music shows and seamy Chicago strip joints until Motown’s corporate image makers turned the Jackson 5 into worldwide superstars. He talks about the happy prankster days of his youth, traveling with his brothers, and of his sometimes difficult relationships with his family over the years. He speaks candidly about the inspiration behind his music, his mesmerizing dance moves, and the compulsive drive to create that has made him one of the biggest stars in the music business and a legend in his own time.

Jackson also shares his personal feelings about some of his most public friends…friends like Diana Ross, Berry Gordy, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, Fred Astaire, Marlon Brando, and Katharine Hepburn. He talks openly about the crushing isolation of his fame, of his first love, of his plastic surgery, and of his wholly exceptional career and the often bizarre and unfair rumors that have surrounded it.

Illustrated with rare photographs from Jackson family albums and Michael’s personal photographic archives, as well as a drawing done by Michael exclusively for this book, Moonwalk is a memorable journey to the very heart and soul of a modern musical genius.

    A very Insightful look at the life of the undisputed King Of Pop, told by the man himself - Michael Jackson. Michael explains many things in this book, including his troubled childhood. You can really feel Michaels emotions when he explains how he never had a real childhood, and how he now compensates that by hanging around with young people. He tells of many relationships he had. Overall, a great read, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about the REAL Michael Jackson.

    Michael did so much for the world. Through his art and his charities that he made. He was always such a kind soul. However there were and always will be the hateful ones to spite him for a false set of accusations made against him. We know he didn't do any of it. And he worked so hard. Im glad that he died at least relatively peacefully. It's sad that's all I can say that happened to him out of all he deserved. I love you Michael. Your fans and family and friends will always love you!
