"Moonwalk" is the only book about his life that Michael Jackson ever wrote. It chronicles his humble beginnings in the Midwest, his early days with the Jackson 5, and his unprecedented solo success. Giving absolutely unrivalled insight into the King of Pop's life, it details his songwriting process for hits like "Beat It", "Rock With You", "Billie Jean", and "We Are the World"; describes how he developed his signature dance style, including the Moon Walk; and, opens the door to his very private personal relationships with his family, including sister Janet, and stars like Diana Ross, Berry Gordy, Marlon Brando, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, and Brooke Shields. At the time of its original publication in 1988, "Moonwalk" broke the fiercely guarded barrier of silence that surrounded Michael Jackson. Candidly and courageously, Jackson talks openly about his wholly exceptional career and the crushing isolation of his fame, as well as the unfair rumors that have surrounded it. "Moonwalk" is illustrated with rare photographs from Jackson family albums and Michael's personal photographic archives, as well as a drawing done by Michael exclusively for the book.It reveals and celebrates, as no other book can, the life of this exceptional and beloved musician.

 Great!

Like the King of Pop himself, this is great! This is the only book he wrote HIMSELF and therefore the only truly honest book about Michael Jackson. Everyone who's interested in him at all should read this, do not read books written by people who didn't even know him. Well written and funny!

 Bought this as a child - re-read it now

And to my astonishment, Michael was younger when he wrote this than I am now (30). It's an extraordinary insight into this strange and wonderful mans mind and history - in his own words. Great photos, and a very easy read. Michael was funny. So sad that he's gone.

 FINALLY a re-issue

This is a must read for any true MJ fan. Its the only book written by him and gives an insight into the kind person he was and what he liked to do. Once you start reading its hard to put down. It has some beautiful pictures of Michael from his private archives.
