"Brilliantly cracks the DNA of Michael Joseph Jackson. . . . A pointed, intelligent dissection of an epic body of work." --Spike Lee

"The only comprehensive and critical rundown of Jackson's solo material."--Rolling Stone "A must-have for any Jackson fan. . . . A fascinating read. . . . Each song Jackson recorded during his solo career is examined with a critical eye." --Associated Press "Don't be surprised if it makes you go back and listen . . . with a whole new outlook on the King of Pop."--Zack O'Malley Greenburg, author of Michael Jackson, Inc. "This is the kind of book about Michael Jackson's music, artistry, and creativity that really needed to be written--and Joseph Vogel has done it and done it very well. I am absolutely floored by Joe's in-depth research and perceptive insight into what made Michael the one-of-a-kind, recording-breaking King of Pop. And--amazingly enough--even I learned a lot!"--J.
