If you are a Michael Fan, then you will love this beautiful hardcover "through the years" tribute book. It"s loaded with pictures from the J5 years all the way through written memorials to Michael by fans after his tragic and early passing. It also has all dicography information in the back of the book. I have ALOT of books about Michael, but I have to say this is one of the best.....I love you Michael...may your brilliant light shine on !

I bought this book and could not put it down. It has amazing pictures of Michael over the years. I have a great deal of books with pictures of Michael but there were some pictures in this book that I had never seen before. It has a nice hardcover that includes it's own pictures front and back (under the jacket). If you love MJ, buy this book. If you don't buy it anyway so you can see why we (his fans) love him so much! Good positive, non-judgmental narrative of his life, too. I love you Michael, King of Pop, King of Hearts, & Prince of Peace. Love you most!

I have bought a lot of books on Michael since his death.This one is really no different. It is nicely put-together and does have some different pictures.

I can honestly say that I a am a late MJ fan, but the book is very, very good. This is the second book that I have purchased so far, but it was ten times better than the first. It is well written and it didn't dwell on the negative aspects of such a outstanding performer.
The pictures are fantastic. I would purchase another copy for the pictures alone. I have recommended this to five other Michael Jackson fans. It is well worth it.

Format: Hardcover
This book contains many photos of Michael Jackson through the years. They are interesting and present a good photographic portrayal of his unique life.
However, the narrative about MJ in the book is nothing profound or especially revealing. I would describe it as "adequate" for a book of 192 pages, but I had hoped for more.
I recommend Dr. Karen Moriarty's book, "Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy," which is well-written, thorough, thought-provoking, and different from the others that I've read. It is a very caring presentation of MJ with unique insights into his life & personality. I also recommend Frank Cascio's book about MJ; the author & his family were good friends of Michael for years.
