Summary
This work is a portrait of Michael Jackson, illuminating the private man, offering access into a rarefied world. The author, his brother, older than Michael by four years, offers a keenly observed and surprisingly candid memoir tracing Michael's life starting with their shared childhood and extending through the Jackson 5 years, Michael's phenomenal solo career, his loves, his suffering, and his tragic end which sparked worldwide grief. It is an examination of the man, aimed at fostering a true and final understanding of who he was, why he was, and what shaped him. The author knows the real Michael Jackson like only a brother can. In this raw, honest, and poignant account, he reveals the Michael he knew so well and understood, perhaps better than anyone else, Michael the private person, not Michael "The King of Pop." He portrays the Michael he started out with in a tiny house at 2300 Jackson Street in Gary, Indiana, the brother, the son, the father, the complex, the unknown Michael. The author does not flinch from tackling the tough issues. He covers it all: the torrid press, the scandals, the allegations, the court cases, the internal politics, the ill fated AEG tour. Far from presenting only thin versions of a media construct, this work provides a glimpse into the complex heart, mind, and soul of a genius but troubled entertainer. As Michael's confidante and a witness to history on the inside the author is a person qualified to deliver the real Michael and reveal his innermost thoughts, opinions, and emotions through the most headline making episodes of his life. This memoir is rich in anecdotes and behind-the-scenes detail and tries to make sense of the troubled artist whose tragic death was so premature
