Overview

The #1 New York Times bestseller! Michael Jackson’s one and only autobiography – his life, in his words.

With original Foreword by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, a new Introduction by Motown founder Berry Gordy, and an Afterword by Michael Jackson’s editor and publisher, Shaye Areheart.

“I’ve always wanted to be able to tell stories, you know, stories that came from my soul. I’d like to sit by a fire and tell people stories – make them see pictures, make them cry and laugh, take them anywhere emotionally with something as deceptively simple as words. I’d like to tell tales to move their souls and transform them. I’ve always wanted to be able to do that. Imagine how the great writers must feel, knowing they have that power. I sometimes feel I could do it. It’s something I’d like to develop. In a way, songwriting uses the same skills, creates the emotional highs and lows, but the story is a sketch. It’s quicksilver. There are very few books written on the art of storytelling, how to grip listeners, how to get a group of people together and amuse them. No costumes, no makeup, no nothing, just you and your voice, and your powerful ability to take them anywhere, to transform their lives, if only for minutes.” –Michael Jackson, in Moonwalk

From the 1988 edition:

Megastar Michael Jackson’s singularly brilliant career and intensely private lifestyle have become a magnificent obsession for millions of rock fans and celebrity watchers throughout the world. His double-platinum singles rocket to the top of the music charts with a velocity equaled only by the inevitable accompaniment of wild rumors about his eccentric personal life. Now for the first time, Michael Jackson breaks the fiercely guarded barrier of silence that has surrounded him in a remarkably candid and courageous book — Moonwalk.

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. Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5 have combined sales of over 200 million albums. 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. The Guinness Book of World Records lists Thriller as the biggest-selling-album of all time.

In Moonwalk, Michael Jackson 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.

Read an Excerpt

I’ve always wanted to be able to tell stories, you know, stories that came from my soul. I’d like to sit by a fire and tell people stories – make them see pictures, make them cry and laugh, take them anywhere emotionally with something as deceptively simple as words. I’d like to tell tales to move their souls and transform them. I’ve always wanted to be able to do that. Imagine how the great writers must feel, knowing they have that power. I sometimes feel I could do it. It’s something I’d like to develop. In a way, songwriting uses the same skills, creates the emotional highs and lows, but the story is a sketch. It’s quicksilver. There are very few books written on the art of storytelling, how to grip listeners, how to get a group of people together and amuse them. No costumes, no makeup, no nothing, just you and your voice, and your powerful ability to take them anywhere, to transform their lives, if only for minutes.

I think I have a goody-goody image in the press and I hate that, but it’s hard to fight because I don’t normally talk about myself. I am a shy person. It’s true. I don’t like giving interviews or appearing on talk shows. When Doubleday approached me about doing this book, I was interested in being able to talk about how I feel in a book that would be mine – my words and my voice. I hope it will help clear up some misconceptions.

Everybody has many facets to them and I’m no different. When I’m in public, I often feel shy and reserved. Obviously, I feel differently away from the glare of cameras and staring people. My friends, my close associates, know there’s another Michael that I find it difficult to present in the outlandish “public” situations I often find myself in.

It’s different when I’m onstage, however. When I perform, I lose myself. I’m in total control of that stage. I don’t think about anything. I know what I want to do from the moment I step out there and I love every minute of it. I’m actually relaxed onstage. Totally relaxed. It’s nice. I feel relaxed in a studio too. I know whether something feels right. If it doesn’t, I know how to fix it. Everything has to be in place and if it is you feel good, you feel fulfilled. People used to underestimate my ability as a songwriter. They didn’t think of me as a songwriter, so when I started coming up with songs, they’d look at me like: “Who really wrote that?” I don’t know what they must have thought – that I had someone back in the garage who was writing them for me? But time cleared up those misconceptions. You always have to prove yourself to people and so many of them don’t want to believe. I’ve heard tales of Walt Disney going from studio to studio when he first started out, trying to sell his work unsuccessfully and being turned down. When he was finally given a chance, everyone thought he was the greatest thing that ever happened.

Sometimes when you’re treated unfairly it makes you stronger and more determined. Slavery was a terrible thing, but when black people in America finally got out from under the crushing system they were stronger. They knew what it was to have your spirit crippled by people who are controlling your life. They were never going to let that happen again. I admire that kind of strength. People who have it take a stand and put their blood and soul into what they believe.

I believe performers should try to be strong as an example to their audiences. It’s staggering what a person can do if they only try. If you’re under pressure, play off that pressure and use it to advantage to make whatever you’re doing better. Performers owe it to people to be strong and fair.

Often in the past performers have been tragic figures. A lot of truly great people have suffered or died because of pressure or drugs, especially liquor. It’s so sad. You feel cheated as a fan that you didn’t get to watch them evolve as they grew older. One can’t help but wondering what performances Marilyn Monroe would have put in or what Jimi Hendrix might have done in the 1980s.

A lot of celebrities say they don’t want their children to go into show business. I can understand their feelings, but I don’t agree with them. If I had a son or daughter, I’d say, ”By all means, be my guest. Step right in there. If you want to do it, do it.”

To me, nothing is more important than making people happy, giving them a release from their problems and worries, helping them to lighten their load. I want them to walk away from a performance I’ve done saying, ”That was great. I want to go back again. I had a great time.” To me, that’s what it’s all about. That’s wonderful. That’s why I don’t understand when some celebrities say they don’t want their kids in the business.

I think they say that because they’ve been hurt themselves. I can understand that. I’ve been there too.

    Lovin' Michael Jackson

    'Moonwalk' has got to be my favorite book, written, in fact, by my favorite author. Before I read it, there was so much I didn't know, but this book puts to rest some of the biggest lies ever told. If you love Mr. Jackson's music, get inside with 'Moonwalk.'

    MOONWALK, IS AN INSPIRATIONAL OUTLOOK OF AN ARTIST STRUGGLING TO BREAK OUT OF THE TABOOS AND UNFAIR JUDGEMENTS OF THE PAPARRAZI.

    I HAVE READ THIS BOOK BACK IN 1994 BEFORE ALL THE SCANDELS. THSI BOOK IS A BLESSING OF FRESH AIR IN UNDERTANDING THE MIND HEART AND SOUL OF MICHAEL JACKSON.

    MICHAEL STRUGGLES AS A CHILD AND YOUNG ADULT RECEIVES SURPASSING FAME, BUT THIS DOES NOT NEGATE HIS FEELINGS OF LONLINESS AND EMPTYNESS.

    TO FILL IN THAT VOID HE REGRESSES INTO A CHILDLIKE PERSONALITY AND SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH NEEDY CHILDREN AND AN ATMOSPHERE OF WONDERLAND

    THIS BOOK MAKES AN ACCOUNT OF HIS REACTION TO LIFE IN GENERAL, TO THE PUBLIC, THE PRESS AND HIS FANS.

    FAN OR NOT THIS BOOK IS TRULLY WORTH READING.

    Lovely, Inspiring, Tear-Jerking -- A TREASURE

    For me, being a huge fan of Michael for such a long time, reading this was somewhat emotional. I did cry a few times during my reading. I first read the book a long time ago, and I got the 2009 edition and read it again. I was so absorbed by Michael's genius, I would read 100 pages in less than 20 minutes! The images inside are BEAUTIFUL, so capturing and delightful to look at. The book itself, when you take off the cover, is just gorgeous.

    When I read this, it feels as though Michael is speaking. It feels like he's talking to you. It gives you this wonderful feeling just like, "Wow."
    That's how Michael makes you feel. Just astonished by his so obvious intelligence which is even more evident in this book. He tells it like it is, but the way he wrote it was like the words of a genius. Michael was a genius. The book he wrote was purely him and his beautiful soul. He told about his life, his feelings, the way he looked at things. His perspective. It really is astonishing and fantastic!!!!!!!! Highly recommended!

    In His Own Words

    If you are a fan of Michael Jackson and do not have this book - get it. He shared some of his the most intimate thoughts and feelings with the world in this book and he knew that people where very interested in wanting to know more about what he was really like.

    This book started sometime during filming of the Thriller video and was finally completed and published first in 1988. Now that Jackson has passed away and we know a little more about what was going on in his life since 1988, it is interesting to read about his past throughts and views on things and compare them to the more recent events leading up to his sudden death.

    In this book, he mentioned that he couldn't understand why people in the business get caught up in drugs and alcohol and die as a result of it. He also mentioned that it is a shame that many celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Jimmy Hendrix died the way they did and we now will never know what more they could have accomplished if they where still alive. (We will now never know how things would have been if Jackson himself lived on to perform the London concerts, see his kids grow up and so on).

    At another point in the book, he said that people told him that if he didn't stop living a in seclusion that he would end up like Elvis. He said he did not think that he would end up like Elvis because he was not like him. (We now can read from Lisa Marie Presley's blog about Jackson that he once confided in her that he believed that he could share the same fate as her father Elvis.)

    In reading his one and only autobiograpy you can see how throughout the years there have been significant changes in his life. The way his life was then(as he interpreted it to be) and the way his final years panned out is really heartbreaking and sad.

    One of many great thing I took away from this book was on his insight into his craft as he generously shared some events and reasonings behind some of the songs he did for albums like "Off The Wall" and "Thriller". After reading about what he had to say about some songs I now listen to the songs with a different ear, and enjoy them with a fresh take which makes them more valuable. He was a genius in many ways and his legacy lives on through his work. Can't wait to see the "This Is It" documentary. Thank you for sharing a little bit of yourself with the world Michael!

    Meeting The Real Michael from his own mouth

    Since it's Michael who is speaking, you get the true foundation of his essence and the way he saw life. No outside interpretation, thank goodness, is given here to falsely apply to MJ. Although "Moonwalk" was written when Michael was a young adult, it still reflects the consistancy that was instilled in him and remained even as he became older. Michael's other book, "Dancing The Dream" reflects that well. Upon opening the book, "Moonwalk", is a single page with MJ's autograph that he particularly wanted displayed there for his fans. I found it to be a very touching gesture. In addition, all of the photos and passages in this book, were personally chosen by Michael himself. In short, "Moonwalk" was a hands on project of Michael's. He was one who always aimed for perfection in his music, dance, lyrics, writing, production and artwork. As an animal lover and great humanitarian with a love for laughter, "Moonwalk" gives us that glimpse.

    Get to know the true Michael through reading one of the only two books which he, himself in authority, wrote..... Moonwalk is one of them.

    A WORK OF A GENIUS

    Michael Jackson is a genius, he wrote his biography in such a way that the reader could almost hear him tell the story, in words that are so concise and in a manner that captures the reader's imagination and attention. The reader finds it difficult to put down the book and becomes absorbed by the awesome way Michael Jackson told the story of his life. This book is a must read, as it explains why Michael Jackson is such a great artist and what motivated him to be as he was. Michael is a very lovable, gentle, kind, loving, compassionate person, and the greatest artist ever. Through this book, Michael Jckson lives forever.

    A book to treasure forever.

    This is only one of the three books that Michael Jackson has authored. It is a treasure and must-have for all fans. Being a die-hard fan myself, I had the chance to have the older version. Now I have this version which has a new foreward by Berry Gordy. The pictures are beautiful. I look to this book time and again for inspiration. Michael has written this so genuinely and flawlessly, detailing his early years, his friendship with Diana Ross, filming of the Wiz and the making of Thriller. I love it.

    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"!

    Reading this book tells the truth of how Michael Jackson was as

    Reading this book tells the truth of how Michael Jackson was as a man. He wanted to let the world know that he was a human being and should be treated normal. He was a great person, he deserves respect. No matter if he was alive he deserves all the kind and love that he gave us. He is a Human, please treat him like one. Yes he made mistakes but thats what we all do, we arent perfect.. he wasnt born for people to judge him.. He's God's child, and how people treated him hurted him. God doesn't like what the media has said about him. But anyways you must read this book. It teaches you a lot about him. As he once said "the truth will prevail".. :) ENJOY THE BOOK READERS !! :D

    Michael Jackson

    I love michael jackson. He is one of the most amazing people ever. At first i didnt kno who he was. Sure i heard bout him but i didnt care. Now i regret it. Im awed by how amazing he is. Yes he made mistakes but dont we all? We do. We can say we dont. And we can hate on mj.. but that wont change anything. Michael Jackson wasnt jst a musician. He was more. He was a god. He was a king. THE King of Pop. Although hes is dead doesnt mean well forget him. We will always remember him. His ngs wil never grow old. When im ninety years old ill still be singing "Dirty Diana". He cared about the world.. Children,Trees. He cared. He wanted is to be safe. And he tried.

    So go ahead say stuff... but nothing will ever take away michael jacksons legacy.
