AWESOME read. Normally I don't like books about the making of music, but this one I read twice just to get all the nuances of Michael's genius. It is not too technical, gives the reader background of what was happening in MJ's life during each period of the glorious music he created. You will get a real appreciation for his talent and creativity. Description of each song he either wrote or co-wrote...or didn't write at all. Highly, highly recommend. We will most likely never see the likes of him again. He was the total package.

It's an AWESOME book! It explains a lot about his songs and what inspired him to make those songs! Lots of words but awesome book! I already said that. Ha! lol!
I said from age 13 because if you are 11 or 12 you won't be able to read it. You get scared and you just leave it, abandoned.
