Respectful and detailed account of Jackson's final months from one of his personal bodyguards. A sensitive, careful assessment of Jackson's life and career - not a book full of tabloid-gossip or rumors.

Michael Jackson got a raw deal from the mainstream press. This book, a first person account by two of his bodyguards, sheds some light into the last three years of his life. The extremes went to to protect his children's privacy bordered on insanity - for example he destroyed an expensive pool camera that had already been disconnected by his posse. Far more disturbing was the state of his finances. On one hand, his credit was so bad he had to put down a thousand dollar deposit to get a cell phone then promptly fell into arrears on the bill. On another, managing to get a credit card but not knowing he had to activate it, forcing his entourage to put a very expensive toy bill on their cards - in the middle of the night. Also gives a very disturbing picture of the last months of his life, including his own concern he might not be able to complete the fifty show stand he had signed up for. For a man who was the relentless pursuit of perfection, he certainly did not deserve to die so early - even if it had been by natural causes, which we know it was not. Even if you're not a fan of MJ, you'll see him in a different light after reading this book.

If you're looking for a bunch of conspiracies or speculations about Jackson's life, this isn't the book. Told by his two body guards, the book reads more of a day to day / what it was honestly like to work for Jackson, as well as offer some details about the disastrous financial state that Jackson was in in his later years. Engaging and sympathetic without getting too personal, I would recommend this to anyone who was / is a fan of Jackson.

There is no doubt he has mastered the music industry. Finances were not his thing and he got taken advantage of, being the King of Pop. He finally can be at peace.
