Okay so I got this book and woooowww it has a slide cover to it like on some dvds. That was cool, alot of the pictures have been restored or they just look better than what I remember seeing it (from the internet) so that was kinda cool. I loved the interviews from everyone from Rod Temperton, Quincy Jones, Rick Baker (makeup-Thriller) dancers on set, directors, artists (new-Beyonce, Usher, etc and older), So basically it's a lot of stuff from the Thriller period (though there are a couple of pictures from other tours used for Billie Jean)

Sections mostly discussed The three videos, Victory tour, We Are the World

There's a section at the end on the impact of Thriller (I.E.- people using soundbites of songs- Rihanna, you can see pic of Indian guy doign the Thriller, Thriller from that prison. Wowo i didn't see the guy in a thriller jacket i just saw all orange. so that was a treat) Missy Elliot in the spray painted jacket of a Rock With You Mike (that's from the BET awards. I remember that, that jacket was HOTTTTTTTT, so was Bjork's dress but they didn't show her dress.

Pros-

1)Pictures-new, some rare, some just repolished (I.E. you get some of the blowup versions of the little pictures in the History album booklet. My favorite was of Michael in the werewolf cotume. IT's just beautifully done)

2) The photo concept and story behind the photoshoot of the Thriller album cover. Why was he in a white suit you ask? (BUY THE BOOK)

Why a tiger (OH MY GOSH SO I THINK THEY HAVE SOME PICTURES OF THE LITTLE BABY TIGER ALL GROWN UP!!!!!

As a Michael Jackson fan for several years, I can say without a doubt - this book is simply AMAZING. For the fans of Michael's that were following his music around the Thriller era, it offers a great walk down memory lane. However, for the newer Michael Jackson fans it offers a window into just how amazing the album, Thriller was and continues to be, along with the Thriller era in general!

It has everything from EXCLUSIVE NEW PHOTOS, to NEW INTERVIEWS with the people who were involved with the making of Thriller. (My personal favorites include the interviews with John Landis, Quincy Jones, and Rod Temperton!)

If you are looking for the perfect gift for a Michael Jackson fan or yourself, or if you are just a music lover in general, this is the ULTIMATE book for you! With the low price Amazon offers this book for, this book is required to be on the bookshelf of any Michael Jackson fan or music lover!

To sum it up..it is a THRILLER!

from Amazon in the UK, France or Germany to get it. I ordered from Amazon UK.

Why does Amazon.com not have this book in stock? Amazon UK costs more than the US Amazon, plus the shipping times are longer and I have to pay for shipping, rather than use the Amazon Prime I have paid for.

I also had to order Dancing the Dream by Michael Jackson from Amazon UK. This is crazy how the fans in the United States cannot get easy access to books written by Michael Jackson!

When is this going to change! I love Amazon, but enough is enough. Support Michael Jackson in the US for goodness sake!

**UPDATE: As of late 2009, Amazon finally sells the product on the US site. It is a great book! Buy it!
