"Whitfield and Beard have so many good stories that you can't put the book down. Even if half of them are true, the book is a page turning 'Thriller.'" --Showbiz 411
"a candid, intimate and remarkably sage appreciation of a tortured soul with everything and nothing." --Macleans
"a book that's hard to put down and one you won't soon forget. If you're a Michael Jackson fan, you'll love the personal touch. And even if you're not a fan, this book will answer questions for you and show you a very different side of a man everyone thought they knew but, in reality, few did." --Examiner

The most interesting part of all of this was just how isolated MJ was. At one point, you read about him going into a club that was playing his music. The club owners did not know he was there- it was just genuinely playing for people to dance to. MJ's reply was "They still play my music?" Wow. He was the last to know how much we all loved his music.
If you are a TRUE FAN, this book is for you.
As for personal information, I could not find anything that would disturb me. All the stories involving children are delivered tactfully. Although one of Michael's lady friends was named by her real name in the end, and I don't think that was appropriate, they should have stuck to using their code names. In all the rest - I love the book. It's about Michael the man, and not about Michael the King of Pop. Precious to anyone who got tired of constant criticism aimed at him. Bittersweet. It makes me slightly happier to know he did enjoy his time with his kids. At least, he could have that much.
Michael Jackson attracted enormous attention when he was alive, there were not a single day when he was not followed in media, reporting about the most bizarre events in which he (supposedly) participated; therefore, in some way, media can also be blamed that his life ended in such a tragic end.
However, it seems that the situation is even worse after Jackson died, because now even those people who have only partially known him or seen him a few times are trying to make money on him; they all feel that they have the right to tell the world their truth, to tell their stories which of course are the only one truthful compared to all others.
As much as I loved this fantastic singer and read many books on the subject of his life, this book unpleasantly surprised me - it is understandable that there are out there people who wants to make money on him, but if that means violation of the unwritten laws that each should impede exposing personal, and even more important, inaccurate or semi-correct information, then it is very sad.
Unfortunately this is the case with this book, because both of these bodyguards are maybe not violating confidentiality contracts (though that is questionable as well) signed with Michael Jackson by releasing their book, but what is more interesting, these guys are also misrepresenting the amount of time that spent working for Michael Jackson - instead of 30 months, they spent 21 months, hence both of them didn't been in Neverland or been in touch with Jackson 8 full months before he died.Read more ›
