No, this isn't a "reading novel" type book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Michael Jackson: For the Record (Hardcover)
I see that some reviews were disappointed because they didn't know that it wasn't a "reading novel biography type" book. So I'd like to clear up any confusion for anybody who is confused. This book is wonderful and I highly recommend adding it to any book collection. The book lists all of MJ's songs (in J5, solo, featured, etc) and most of the entries have trivial info, video info, original title, etc. For example, MJ's song P.Y.T. entry in the book mentions that the "na na na" part in the song was in fact his sisters LaToya & Janet! I had no idea! So the book is wonderful, fun, easy reference book type. Unless you wish to read it like a standard novel which would be easy to do as well. There aren't numerous pictures throughout the book BUT there are many black & white photos of album covers, etc. So if you are interested in reading more about MJ's life, then this isn't the book for you at all. This is strictly a trivial, informative type book about his music. If you would like to read more about his life, I recommend Aphrodite Jones "Michael Jackson Conspiracy" and Randy Taraborrelli's "Michael Jackson Magic & Madness
The Whole Story". I have all of them in my collection and they are all great additions in any collection.
