"These seem completely unreasonable dreams. But from a boy from Gary, Indiana, who was special from the first, they became more than dreams. They became fundamental needs.

Overview

From this book's first chapter: "To be able to float free, with gravity exerting no impact. To live in Neverland. To be idolized-to be loved-by millions around the world.

"These seem completely unreasonable dreams. But from a boy from Gary, Indiana, who was special from the first, they became more than dreams. They became fundamental needs. And they were achieved during a lifetime that was stunning in its highs and lows, and that was, ultimately, far, far too short.

"Far too short and, more sadly still, perhaps poised for a triumphant next chapter. We will never know."

While that is true-we will never know-we can revisit and celebrate that extraordinary life, and we do so in words and pictures in this special commemorative book. Although Michael Jackson lived just 50 years, he spent the great majority of that time in the public eye. We loved his as a boy, radiating joy and dancing up a storm in the Jackson 5, his falsetto tenor pouring forth from car radios coast to coast. We were subsequently thrilled by his reinvention as the biggest pop star on the planet, with "Billie Jean" and "Beat It" blasting from boom boxes around the world.

The best pictures from each era are here. As you would expect, LIFE magazine, then the country's preeminent photo journal, was onto the Jackson 5 story early-in fact, we put the family on our cover when Michael was still a lad. He made the cover several more times, and he allowed LIFE exclusive access to his private California sanctum called Neverland. We have combed through our archives and found all the famous shots as well as several surprises, including never-before-seen pictures that show the boy and then the man in an unguarded, personal way. Also, we have taken the best from the portfolios of the world's top rock 'n' roll photographers and created, we think, a complete picture of this endlessly compelling entertainer.

Michael Jackson was, like Sinatra, Elvis, the Beatles and few others, a celebrity who not only made us smile but changed the culture-who altered the way that we looked and behaved. In this book, we relive his thrilling life and times, which were our time too.

    One of the few good ones

    It has some nice and rare pictures with writings about MJ's life from the begining to the end and I like how Life does it all without bashing him like most other books yet while flipping through it I feel like it was a bit rushed, you can tell by how it was put together and at the end (as it was put out shortly after his death). I think if Life would have taken a bit more time, it could have been even better. It can be a good addition your collection but I say to any fan who hasn't gotten this one yet - save your money and get the official Michael Jackson opus instead because its 26lbs worth of pictures and so much more and the opus was officially approved by Michael before his passing and then later approved by his estate in order to complete it, so you know its going to be a positive book and worth every penny.

    WONDERFUL TRIBUTE

    When I opened this book I was thrilled at all the pictures and the articles written about Michael Jackson. I loved reading his own words w/the writer who has known him since his childhood and how he embraced her even at his peak. He seemed to always have fun at the expense of others (in a charming funny way) This shows how humble of a guy he really is(was). I am glad I purchased this gem and it will be forever be valued.

    Good job, enjoy the layout and style.

    I knew that Life magazine would do a great job and not blow his life out of proportion. I remember as a kid the issue that did a complete story on JFK, I knew that I would not be disappointed, in fact I still have that issue.
