About this item


About the Book

"Moon Walk" chronicles Jackson's humble beginnings in the Midwest, his early days with the Jackson 5, and his unprecedented solo success. This updated edition of the original 1988 publication features a new Introduction that looks back at the singer's life and music.

Book Synopsis

In this #1 New York Times bestseller, Michael Jackson tells the story of his life, in his words.

In this intimate and often moving personal account of Michael Jackson's public and private life, he recalls a childhood that was both harsh and joyful but always formidable. Michael and his brothers played amateur music shows and seamy Chicago strip joints until Motown's corporate image makers turned the Jackson 5 into worldwide superstars. He talks about the happy prankster days of his youth, traveling with his brothers, and of his sometimes difficult relationships with his family over the years. He speaks candidly about the inspiration behind his music, his mesmerizing dance moves, and the compulsive drive to create that has made him one of the biggest stars in the music business and a legend in his own time.

Jackson also shares his personal feelings about some of his most public friends...friends like Diana Ross, Berry Gordy, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, Fred Astaire, Marlon Brando, and Katharine Hepburn. He talks openly about the crushing isolation of his fame, of his first love, of his plastic surgery, and of his wholly exceptional career and the often bizarre and unfair rumors that have surrounded it.

Illustrated with rare photographs from Jackson family albums and Michael's personal photographic archives, as well as a drawing done by Michael exclusively for this book, Moonwalk is a memorable journey to the very heart and soul of a modern musical genius.

One of my favorite books ever!! Since it’s shipped there’s a tiny tiny crease on the corner but it’s hardly noticeable at all. Otherwise it’s amazing not just the book itself but the quality of the binding and even color, underneath the slip on the front of the cover is MJ’s signature embossed in gold!! Excellent buy, and cheaper than the MSRP.

This is THE BEST book I have ever read. Michael and his brothers did the funniest things when they were younger(mostly Michael, Marlon and Jermaine). Even if you are not a fan of Michael Jackson you will become one once you read this book. Michael writes about his experiences with Motown, beforehand at talent contests, earlier shows before becoming famous as the Jackson 5 then as the Jacksons, and his his music and life after the Jacksons/Jackson5 up to a little past the release of BAD, Smooth Criminal, and the movie Moonwalker. Michael also shares his experiences with crowds of over enthusiastic fans whom almost tore him and his brothers up after they got off of a plane. If you enjoy reading about pranks as I have aforementioned, then you will love this book. Due to the risk of giving anything more away I'm just going to leave you with some advice...Buy the book and read it. That may sound corny the way I wrote it, but just follow my strong advice. :)
