From School Library Journal
Grade 9 Up—Emily Herbert's biography (John Blake, 2009) of the pop legend delivers an affectionate and respectful look into Michael Jackson's extraordinary life and career from his youth through his shocking death. Beginning with a look at his parents and the tremendous pressure his father placed on him to be perfect at a very young age, this portrait includes many quotes from interviews with Jackson that occurred throughout his life. The many hardships the performer suffered are discussed, including his court cases, his apparent obsession for plastic surgery, his addiction to pain killers, and his questionable fondness for children. His solo career and his hit albums and singles are covered. Andre Blake deftly narrates, keeping a steady pace throughout. An insightful biography packed full of information by a journalist and biographer who seems to have admired and respected Jackson.—Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN

From the Back Cover
On 25th July, breaking news revealed that Michael Jackson, King of Pop, was dead. Fans and the media watched in shock as the story unfolded: doctors had lost the battle to save him after he had collapsed from a heart attack. In a cruel twist of fate, he had passed away before he got the chance to make his final curtain call in the form of 50 planned sell-out shows at London's O2 Arena. From a very young age, Michael's exceptional music talent was clear. He stood apart from his four brothers when they performed together as the Jackson 5 and, in 1974, he embarked upon what was to become a monumental solo career. A string of chart-busting albums and singles followed, with the Thriller album selling 47 million copies worldwide and yielding seven top-ten singles. It is belived that, in his lifetime, he sold around 750 million records, making him one of the most successful entertainers ever. This in-depth and affectionate biography traces the rise of the man, from child prodigy to tortured megastar. It is the definitive portrait of a pop legend whose strange and brilliant life will never be forgotten. --This text refers to the Preloaded Digital Audio Player edition.

Most importantly, the author did not seem to believe the autopsy report that Michael Jackson DID indeed have vitilago.
Michael didn't just "STATE' that he suffered from vitilago, it was proven in the autopsy findings that he did have it!!!!
Other than that, average writing.
