For those who are truly interested in an in-depth analysis of the cultural impact of Michael Jackson, this book should not be missed. I loved it because unlike a normal fan tome, Michael Jackson Treasures delves into the effect of an accomplished and singularly creative artist upon world culture. While one other reviewer had trouble with the author, Jason King, suggesting Jackson's guilt without taking a stand or supporting such a stand either way, it should be noted that this is exactly what I wanted to hear; a realistic and unsentimental view of a brilliant, yet troubled artist. If Jackson was a God his accomplishments would be less impressive, but this is a perspective on a man of great contradictions; steely yet fragile and ultimately resilient yet tragic. The memorabilia is a nice touch to enable true fans a closer perspective into the understandably secretive world of Michael Jackson. At first I thought this merely an attempt to capitalize upon the untimely passing of MJ, but I have to realize that if you're going to buy any book or memorabilia at any time, someone will profit, so at least this book offers bang for the buck and, at most, a momentary transport to a time not long gone by when Michael Jackson ruled as the King of Pop at the top of his game and later in exile. If you're a fan or know one, this book is a must have to add to any Michael Jackson collection. Sure to go up in value as time goes by and this book goes out of print, I went back and bought two so I can keep one pristine.

Includes beautiful, vivid full page photos and memorabilia any MJ fan would be delighted to own. However, the author is somewhat biased but if you can look past that it's a great book to own.

Unlike most books/magazines that claim to be tribute fit for a king, this one is. It's obvious that the writer did his research because through out the book it makes references to other books and quotes from many sources. And to top off all the wonderful things in this book are the posters, postcards, tickets, ect. The only problem I had was that the author made it seem like Mike was guilty without claiming or disclaiming that he was or was not.

I love this book. I am so happy that I was able to purchase this beautiful full color book that includes mementos of Michael's long career. It was priced very reasonably and for the quality I would have paid even more. I am one very joyful MJ fan because Michael Jackson Treasures really lives up to its name.

Love this book! The memorabilia was excellent and quality of the photos was perfect. I didn't mind the author's language at all. Some felt he was a bit raw but it was fine to me. Quality book. I'm glad I purchased.

Contains very unique memorabilia that you will find nowhere else. If you can pick it up used you will be one of the lucky ones, but it will be a staple in your MJ collection. DO IT!

Those of us who love Michael Jackson unconditionally, and we number in the hundreds of millions, know that Michael is the most beloved person on earth, and beyond, of our lifetime. Michael is the most beloved person, and the most lied about person. I am extremely diligent and cautious about never purchasing any book that slanders Michael in any way. It's not logical to me how anyone can create slander against Michael and publish it in a book and call it a tribute book. Michael's legacy is decades long of only loving accomplishments to help humanity and much of it is anonymous to this day it can't be completely tabulated. Michael should never have had to act alone accomplishing all that he did as the world's most recognized humanitarian. Overall this is a stunningly beautiful book, not as beautiful as Michael himself, because nothing can be as beautiful as Michael the person. I think this is a good tribute book none the less. Author does make some snide comments and remarks that only succeed in telling the world that author is jealous of Michael but what man isn't jealous of Michael? The trinkets in this book and the memorabilia make it special. I think this is better than the competitor book that I have seen but do not own that has some similar memorabilia. This book was given to me as a Christmas gift in 2009 by a fellow Michael follower. I bought two copies and sent them to friends in other parts of the world who don't have good books about Michael available to them. The book could be better without the rudeness and judgement of course from author and I already received the books before I knew about this flaw. Author will ultimately be judged for that by a higher authority than me, as is the case of every person who tried to harm Michael has not fared so well.

After viewing some the contents of this book....concert tickets, the patent for the "Smooth Criminal" shoes, the marriage license to Lisa Marie Presley, his Last Will & Testament, etc., this sounds like a repetition of the "Michael Jackson Platinum Edition Collector's Vault", which I already have. It just seems like "more of the same". Sorry.
