5.0 out of 5 stars THOUGHTFUL, PROVACATIVE, INSIGHTFUL...FOR THE TRUE FAN A TRUE TREASURE, November 16, 2009
This review is from: The Michael Jackson Treasures: Celebrating the King of Pop in Photos and Memorabilia (Paperback)
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.

I totally agree with Fablesd1. What made MJ stand out in the crowd was his complicated yet unique personality. I'll never get bored of him.
