Overview

In 2000-2001, Michael Jackson sat down with his close friend and spiritual guide, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, to record what turned out to be the most intimate and revealing conversations of his life. It was Michael's wish to bare his soul and unburden himself to a public that he knew was deeply suspicious of him. The resulting thirty hours are the basis of The Michael Jackson Tapes. There has never been, and never will be, anything like them. In these searingly honest conversations, Michael exposes his emotional pain and profound loneliness, his longing to be loved, and the emptiness of his fame. You discover why he was suspicious of women and how only children provided the innocence for which he so desperately longed. In his own words, he takes us into the jarring moments of his childhood and speaks of the measures he took to try and heal. He divulges how he came to be alienated from his strong religious anchor and describes his views on the nature of faith. Michael brings us into his tortured yet loving relationship with his siblings. He opens up about his father and his yearning for a time when they might finally reconcile. He talks about his most personal friendships and shares with us his terror of growing old. Despite his unprecedented fame and recent death, there remain unanswered questions about his life. The answers, presented here in The Michael Jackson Tapes, will both intrigue and move you. You will be surprised, riveted, and troubled as you peer into the soul of a tragic icon whose life is an American morality tale and whose flame was extinguished much too early.

I was very disappointed when I read this book. I thought it was going to be someone who would write the truth and not bash Michael since he is a rabbi. Instead I felt like the Rabbi did to Michael in book form what Martin Bashir did to Michael in his TV documentary. The Rabbi was constantly going back and fourth on the accusations. He constantly cut Michael off when he was answering his questions. When Michael did answer questions the Rabbi then wrote his opinion of what he thought Michael said which were wrong. Their friendship didn't end because of MJ's supposed drug use,(like he says in the book) it was because Boteach was stealing money from the foundation they had started together, something Boteach had done previously with another charity. Everyone knows this fact. That is why Michael put him on the list of people to stay away. Also, Boteach becomes increasingly frustrated when Michael would not allow himself to be molded into the Rabbi's idea of life as it should be lived. That is why Boteach refused to do the book any more(as he says in the book) but he releases it right after Michael's death?? He just released this for the money. Don't give Shumuley Boteach your money.
