  • lunasera - Fascinating, in depth look into the real life of Michael Jackson.I couldn't put this book down from the moment I began. The research that has gone into this book is amazingly in depth, and in my opinion gives a fair and truthful-feeling presentation of Michael's real life. There is so much media spin on everything about Michael, that it was refreshing to have a balanced straight forward account. The author delves into the subject without passing judgement or giving undue support, and leaves his reflections more in the form of questions for the reader to think about as well.

    There are so many great little insights and moments that I had never heard about, and I was amazed at how many perspectives you got from both Michael and those who knew him, so you really felt you had a sense of all the sides of a matter. I learned a lot especially about Lisa Marie and their relationship, and found her story extremely interesting. The dynamics of the Jackson family are also fascinating in themselves. What's also quite fun when you read this book, is that you can find so much on the internet that will enhance your reading experience. For example when the author explains why Michael Jackson was distracted and agitated when accepting a certain award one year (quite a funny story) you can look up the video of the award that night and see the agitation you just read about! Not many people are so famous that you can actually look up media and photos that correspond to the biography you're reading!

    There were a handful of typos, which really wouldn't be worth mentioning in a book this length except that I was bummed when the second to last word of the book was one of them. However I'm sure it was quite a rush getting the updated version of this book out so quickly, and I'm glad they did.

    Michael Jackson was a fascinating, amazing talented, troubled, and unique person who will be missed by many the world over. I really loved delving deeper into a person who was such a phenomenon and I can't imagine a better, more complete and balanced biography. Highly recommended for both fans and those who are just curious about the legend. Incidentally, this review comes from a fan.
  • Marie Lloyd - The best spray!We had a bad flea problem and tried a lot of other spays on the market but they didn't work very well.You will also have to use medication for your pets that stop the flea breeding cycle which we had already started and then I bought this spray and it killed the fleas on contact! Even after we got rid of the fleas, we still spray this on carpets, pet bedding and furniture in the warmer months just in case some get in! Yes, I recomment this product!
