It is ok but no details of his creativity in here
As other reviewers have pointed out, this is not a book for a musical fan of Michael Jackson. I made the mistake of not reading the reviews myself. It sounded like it was authored by an accountant or an attorney. I was more looking forward to knowing about the creativity that went into the making of his landmark albums. But I was left disappointed and will have to look else where.
But you will get the answers to why Michael's life ended the way it did. It is interesting that there are contradictions regarding anything related to Michael. He was carefree with his spending. His family and law suits were constantly preying on him. His failing health and addictions would ultimately take him out. In the end, its an unfortunate tragedy of a exceptional talent.
