    Great Insight into this incredibly and amazingly talented man!

    I'm only about 1/2 way through the book but it is very insightful and I'm really enjoying learning more about MJ and J5 as they developed into the entertainers they are (were). The book somewhat dispells the impression that Michael's childhood was all bad and totally lost. True it wasn't typical by any means but MJ was not typical. He shares many stories of happiness and fun and childhood joy but also the terror of the fans as they mobbed and physically hurt him in their show of enthusiasm and love. It is easy to see and understand why he became who he was, especially experiencing these things at such a young age. He also shares why he had such an issue with his appearance during the already difficult adolescent years and how it impacted his personality and attitude in public. The book brings understanding and empathy for Michael - and sadness that he sacrificed and suffered so much, to bring so much joy to so many people. But in his own words, music and entertainment was to Michael as breathing in and exhaling out is to the rest of us - so it's good to know that he really loved what he did. It is just so tragic that any entertainer who brings such joy to their fans cannot also have some semblance of a normal life and the same joy that their fans experience.

    Michael's writing is easy to read and brings the reader into his world as he shares his story. I feel as if I'm living his life with him through his words and stories. I did not follow MJ throughout his career but remember him and his music during the Thriller years. I am still surprisingly grief-stricken by his untimely death and tragic loss and have since been listening to his music again, some of the later music for the first time. It is evidence of his AMAZING talent to not only have a beautiful voice, but be able to sing and dance AT THE SAME TIME flawlessly. He not only wrote and produced his own music but also sang the lead as well as his own vocal background. Incredible!! Words cannot really describe all the gifts he had and good deeds he tried to do. There will be no other like him. He obviously was a sensitive, kind-hearted man as you hear his emotion in "She's Out Of My Life", "Will You Be There". It is tragic that all the good deeds he did through his charities weren't more publicly known during his lifetime - Guinness Record for Most Charities Supported By A Pop Star. But it seems he wanted to be that humanitarian without the glory of recognition that comes with it. It speaks to who he really was. And it is even more tragic that he could not enjoy and use his fame to fulfill his longing to help starving and ill children around the world - because of the greed of those he sought to bring solace.

    When you finish reading "Moonwalk", I recommend obtaining further insight into Michael Jackson by reading "The Michael Jackson Tapes". Another excellent read for MJ fans wanting to know the "real" Michael in his own words. It is heart-warming in parts, crushingly painful and frightening in others. It gives insight into his dispair and prediction to his eventual early demise. For those who enjoy just watching MJ moves, his videos are mesmerizing - any and all of them. The Wiz is a delight to watch, and it grows on you, to see Michael in his youth and obvious joy in his work as he evolves into the "King of Pop"!

    moomwalk by michael jackson

    This book shows Michael Jackson in control of his career and personal life. He's not as timid as the media portrays him to be. He also puts to rest alot of rumors about himself. Enjoyed the pictures in the book and Michael's drawing and autograph inside the front cover.I'm so glad the book was reissued after his death.

    Moon Walk, by Michael Jackson is a simple but entertaining book.

    Moon Walk is the life story of Michael Jackson. In the book he describes his life from his beginnings in Gary Indiana to 1988. The book is written in first person and goes into great detail about events in Jackson's life. Moon Walk is written in a childish style. It can be understood by almost all ages. Overall it is a good book that Michael Jackson fans would enjoy.
