Présentation de l'éditeur

So much has now been said and written about the life and career of Michael Jackson that it has become almost impossible to disentangle the man from the myth. Recent revelations are only the latest instalments of a saga that began decades ago. This book is the fruit of over 30 years of research and hundreds of exclusive interviews with a remarkable level of access to the very closest circles of the Jackson family - including Michael himself. Cutting through tabloid rumours, J. Randy Taraborrelli traces the real story behind the Michael Jackson we see and hear today, from his drilling as a child star through the blooming of his talent to his ever-changing personal appearance and bizarre publicity stunts. This major biography includes the behind-the-scenes story to many of the landmarks in Jackson's life: his legal and commercial battles, his marriages to Lisa Marie Presley and Debbie Rowe, his passions and addictions, his children. Objective and revealing, it carries the hallmarks of all of Taraborrelli's best-sellers: impeccable research, brilliant storytelling and definitive documentation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A LIRE D'URGENCE 17 mars 2006
Format:Broché
L'un des auteurs INCONTOURNABLE de l'univers Jacksonien est sans conteste J. Randy Taraborrelli. Véritable blible vivante de la famille jackson, cet américain suit Michael et ses frères depuis de très longues années, bien avant que leur carriére n'explose. Biographe non officiel, il a sorti en 1991 "The magic & the madness", un livre retrassant toute la vie de Michael. Direct et non complaisant, il y décrit un Michael Jackson sous un angle différent et particuliérement intéressant. Mis à jour réguliérement, la derniére édition date de 2003, et prolonge la biographie jusqu'à la tragique émission de Martin Bashir.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un travail d'investigation fascinant 27 janvier 2007
Par Asmahan
Format:Broché
Que l'on aime ou pas Michael Jackson, on ne peut rester insensible au travail phénoménal de Taraborrelli sur cet ouvrage. Une investigation impliquant des centaines de protagonistes, des milliers de témoignages recueillis sur plusieurs dizaines d'années. Des anecdotes issus de souvenirs personnels, deux carnets de photos dans insérés dans le livre, une Bible de 700 pages. Contrairement à beaucoup de biographes qui ont choisi délibérément d'accentuer le versant "artistique" ou, au contraire, le versant "scandale" de Michael Jackson, Taraborrelli joue la carte de la globalité. Michael Jackson est un artiste, oui, mais il est aussi un homme.
Alors on parle de femmes, de sexe, de sentiments, de périodes de joie et aussi des périodes troubles, sans oublier de rendre justice à ses formidables capacités de showman et de visionnaire. Ce travail peut déranger certains lecteurs et bouleverser la conception qu'ils se font du personnage. Mais quoi qu'on en pense, The Magic and The Madness ramène définitivement Michael Jackson au rang d'être humain, dont le mystère et la banalité se mêlent pour en faire la star unique et controversée que l'on connaît aujourd'hui.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Une fenêtre sur l'homme et l'artiste 9 décembre 2009
Format:Broché
Ayant été une grande fan il y a quelques années, avec toute la folie qui a suivi sa disparition la seule envie que j'ai eu fut de connaître mieux cet homme. Son décès a eu pour effet de presque le diviniser mais il m'a paru important de garder un oeil lucide, et de connaître qu'il était vraiment.
Le livre de Taraborelli est une analyse très complète de sa vie, un bel effort d'information et d'ojectivité. L'auteur a la chance de connaître le chanteur depuis le début des années 70, et donc a pu voir l'évolution du personnage tout au long des années. Je pense qu'entre autre c'est pour cela qu'il est une des personnes les mieux placées pour raconter sa vie. L'auteur a conduit de nombreux interview pour la rédaction de cette biographie et nous livre tout au long des pages de nombreux anecdotes au sujet de MJ qui nous font voir le vrai personnage, derrière le masque, "son" masque au sens propre et figuré, qu'il s'est forgé au cours des années. Dans ce livre l'auteur tient à nous donner à voir et à nous de juger, il nous montre un Michael Jackson plus humain. On connaît l'artiste exceptionnel, l'homme gentil et timide, plein d'amour pour ses fans et ses proches, oui mais est-ce tout? Tout homme a ses démons. Le livre de M.Taraborrelli mets sous le grand jour les démons de MJ et pour résultat, le voilà enfin humain, et d'autant plus attachant.
Fan ou pas, si vous voulez mieux connaître cet homme lisez ce livre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Eccentric but not Evil 23 mai 2008
Par C. Clough - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I loved this book. I read it so fast and it's a thick book. I recently read "Be Careful who you Love". And it was so obviously biased and tabloid cheap- it left a really bad taste in my mouth. People have labeled that one un-biased ok not true for sure.
This author has a lot more legitimate interviews and a lot more compassion. But he is also real about how Michael is eccentric he has played the victim role a lot rather than take hold of his life.
What I discovered and found most shocking really was Michael and Lisa Marie really had something sexual and honest for a minute. The truth as the author puts it really is stranger than fiction. They really did love each other.
I think Michael has been through a tedious three ring circus of a life. He has been through hell really. At the end of the day at least he has been able to maintain compassion, believe in God, Love his children his fans and despite everything his family. Personally I believe it to be his best attribute.
I thought the book was very fair. Read it if you are interested in the truth about Mr. Jackson.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Engrossing and very convincing. 29 avril 2003
Par D. Mok - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness is pretty sensationalistic. Then again, so is the star who's the focal point of this book. J. Randy Taraborelli's notorious biography of Michael Jackson is very well written, with plenty of sources and documentation to support its assertions as well as an authorative tone of investigative journalism which really leads me to believe that what it describes is true.
Some of the book's most interesting points are about Michael and the Jackson siblings' relationship to Joe and Katharine Jackson. Taraborelli's thesis about the domination of Katharine Jackson over the Jackson children is fascinating stuff, as is his probe into the relationship between the two superstars, Michael and Janet. His analysis of Michael Jackson's music is also detailed and convincing, and he has many small anecdotal touches which add immensely to the flavour and make this book a very fast read indeed. Examples include a fan of the Jackson 5 who was allegedly seduced by Jackie Jackson; a secretary who claimed she was beaten up by Katharine and Janet Jackson; and a Soul Train dancer who may have taught Jackson his signature "Moonwalk" move but says that Jackson's version is not really a "Moonwalk".
I only have one criticism of this book, which is directed at the final few paragraphs of this book where Taraborelli steps out of objective mode and tries to state his thesis about how Michael Jackson became who he is. I felt that he had made his points well and clear before this without having to moralize about it. Nevertheless, it's a small flaw in what is otherwise a highly engaging biographical work. I've been hoping that Taraborelli would add some new chapters which would cover the turbulent decade in Jackson's career since this book's publication -- the Dangerous album, HIStory, "Scream", Blood on the Dance Floor, the marriage to Lisa Marie Presley...given his authority and smart writing, Taraborelli's observations and research into this material would be essential reading. But it's never too late, and one can always hope...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent update, but decreased writing quality 28 février 2009
Par Kyle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Years ago I read the initial pressing of this book, published in 1991. Obviously, much has happened in the life of Michael Jackson since then, so I sought out this updated edition, published in 2003. Ultimately, I was a bit disappointed. My main complaint was the "tabloidization" of this version (British? This is an import, after all)--overuse of exclamation marks, excessively positive phrasing, almost taking some of the objectivity away that was so prevalent in the first edition. Also, notable chunks of the first book were removed, others greatly edited down, and in some cases updated with new information. Granted, the years added to this book probably required cutting down in some sense. Yet, the "tabloid" feel continued in much of the newer segment (1990-2003), spending entire chapters on Jackson's love/sex life and literally mentioning his entire musical career from 1995 to 2003 in about one page. Sure, in those years his personaly life probably was of more interest than his musical career to many people, but I would have found the story behind his declining career and musical evolution much more fascinating than the space it was given.
On a positive note, the book (like the first edition) does not go out of its way to either defend or criticize Jackson's personal life. It does provide a revealing, first-hand account from someone who has had an inside look at Jacksons life since the 1970's, and for that alone it is probably the best source for an honest book on Jackson's glories and faults.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unputdownable 28 juillet 2004
Par lulu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Turtleback
A riveting read in the typical conversational style of Taraborrelli. I zipped through it in about 1 week and couldn't put it down.

It details Jackson's early life to the present day and you definitely get an excellent interpretation of how the crazy success of his youth, coupled with difficult family relationships shaped the man and his actions today.

It is certainly testimony to the destructive nature of phenomenal wealth on a family, where greed seems to be the prime motivator even though they do love each other also. I suppose every family's dynamics are different and even difficult and the Jacksons have certainly lived theirs in the spotlight.

Taraborelli gives a very good insight into Jackson's character and you begin to understand some of the choices good and bad that he has made and is still making in his life. He is someone who has rarely experienced the word "NO" and this is obvious in his approach to situations - giving a very good impression of a belligerent teenager at times.

It's good to see photos as well, cause you can do a chronology of the changes made through plastic surgery and see finally the devastation of his face today. It is very sad, especially when you see photos of him in 1983-1984 when he was musically and physically insurmontable.

Unfortunately the way Jackson has chosen to live his life has overshadowed the incredibile musical legacy and sometimes I tend to forget what an important contributor he has been to our times.

Definitely a book for anyone who is interested in the ordinary and extraordinary - very well written - the style is only eclipsed by the subject matter - the Enigma that is Michael Jackson

4.0 étoiles sur 5 accurate 31 mars 2008
Par Mikaela Yong - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
When I decided to purchase this book i did so because I have seen the author on numerous television shows talking about michael and thought that he would give a fairly accurate account of michael's life, and it turns out that I was right. instead of portraying michael as a weird child molester he portrays him as a caring, somewhat eccentric musical genius. I know that michael has his faults but who does'nt? he chronicles everything from the victory tour to michael's marriage with lisa marie to the hyperbaric chamber. while reading this book there will be times when all can do is shake your head at the things that michael suggests, and there will be times when you truly feel sorry for him, and then there will be times when all you can do is laugh. I know for a fact that one thing is for sure, after reading this book you will definitely view the king of pop in a new light, and maybe even understand why he behaves the way he does.

person then arranged the services of two hookers for Michael. He told them to work him over, and then locked Michael up in a room with them. Rebbie said that this incident absolutely traumatized her brother. I dont know whether or not Michael actually had sex with the hookers. Rebbie didnt say. &quote;
