5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thank you Dr. Moriarty, 13 juillet 2014
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy (English Edition) (Format Kindle)
Each time a book is released defending Michael Jackson, I cannot wait to read it and Dr. Moriarty’s “Defending a King” did not disappoint. What I enjoyed most, and what I feel makes this book unique, is Dr. Moriarty’s psychologist’s touch to the book. Many books simply tell a story, but I like how we get a psychological view on the “why’s” surrounding Michael’s life and his decisions in this book.

Dr. Moriarty’s research seemed in depth and ranged much farther than just having knowledge about more mainstream issues like his trials. The book does a good job shining light upon the tabloid fodder and sensationalism that constantly hounded Michael throughout his life.

“Defending a King ~ His Life & Legacy” is a great place to start if you’re looking for the information about Michael Jackson that didn’t come out of a reporters mouth. It will teach you more about the MAN himself, not the myth. Thank you, Dr. Karen Moriarty for providing a pathway to truth and defending the man who so greatly deserves it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Book about MJ, 12 juillet 2014
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Defending a King His Life & Legacy (Broché)
This book is (a must have) for MJ fans, but also for people who just want to read about Michael Jackson, as a man, a father, a human being!!!
People who have a different opinion about MJ, please read this book and see if you feel the same about a man who has been treated so wrong, for so many years!!!

To write this book the author had meetings with people who were really close to MJ in his last years. People like, MJ's bodyguards, his attorney (Thomas Mesereau) and some of his closest friends who all contributed to this book.

It's mainly about the last years of his life, but at the end of the book you can read all about the Conrad Murray trial as well.

Everybody should get a copy of this book and read it, it's really worthwhile!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The "Real Story" of Michael Jackson, 28 octobre 2014
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Defending a King His Life & Legacy (Broché)
Before I opened the 1st chapter, I read the forward and developed a respect for the author. I hoped the book wouldn't disappoint. I questioned Karen Moriarty's credentials and ability to convey accurate information. After further reading, it didn't matter. She took me on a journey that wrangled my emotions to the core of my own life purpose. I acquired numerous self revelations regarding my life as I read.

The author shared a prolific insight as to the life of a megastar. A life, draining the very core of their being from one who lives a life of stardom. A life degrading the very purpose of the star, due to the tabloid magazines nonstop delusion portrayed to the public. The author shows the greed and evil intent of many people. Karen Moriarty paints a picture that would make any rising star of today weary of any further pursuit of stardom.

There is a plethora of information inadvertently making me question my own path of altruistic abilities of contribution or lack thereof. It was refreshing to see Michael Jackson's life portrayed as humanitarian as opposed to demonized since he was cleared of any wrongdoing.

The author projected a unique style of writing, showing a poetic love toward Michael Jackson. Karen Moriarty has the ability to make me feel I was in the scene to which she was describing. I forgot the author was even there. This is a skill of the makings of a great author. I am so happy I read it, and my life will be better enriched because of it.

I want to recommend it to all of my friends and family or anyone who wants or needs to see the world in a greater light.
I recommend it to anyone who is looking for the real reason we are here.
I want to recommend it to anyone who wants to know their true purpose in life. The book does not disappoint.
Thank you Karen Moriarty for this wonderful experience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 At last, the real story! Five star!, 6 octobre 2014
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy (English Edition) (Format Kindle)
Truly engaging … the real story at last!
I’ve always wanted to know the true story, and the psychology, behind the persona of Michael Jackson. I must have thought like millions of others; how could I trust the way the media portrayed him? All that hype … all the shouts of “fire,” when most of it must only be smoke. For example, I couldn’t believe such naïve transparency by a smart, international talent like Mr. Jackson was a true admission of guilt. I’m talking about the child molestation charges of course, and the agonizing court battle that he eventually won. And what about his carnival-like eccentricity in every facet of his life? All that bad press was entertaining, but was it all true? Even a little bit?
My curiosity was sated when I read Defending a King, by Dr. Karen Moriarty. The result of years of painstaking research into the life of Michael Jackson, Dr. Moriarty’s book tells the real story, and explains Mr. Jackson’s bizarre, misunderstood behavior once and for all. Skillfully-written with layer after layer of facts and presented with interesting style, this book tells the heart-wrenching story of that most interesting and complex entertainer.
The author points out (through countless interviews with Jackson insiders, and supported by her doctorate in Psychology), that Michael’s childlike behavior resulted from not having a childhood of his own. Due to the immense amount of work as the center of The Jackson Five, he was forced to be an adult too early in his developing years. That explains a lot. As Dr. Moriarty astutely points out; “He felt like an alien soul with adults, but he felt within himself the stirrings of a child. He felt wonder at their innocence, was awed by their charm, and he realized their vulnerability.”
Truthfully, I was never a fan of Michael Jackson. But I am keenly interested in the few who skyrocket beyond the heights of celebrity strata through hard work and sheer brilliance. Dr. Moriarty helped me appreciate this performer who, in spite of his eccentricities (which many great personalities seem to acquire), was a highly talented, creative, good man trying to do the right thing.
As the book illustrates so well, much of the world wanted a piece of him, but he reacted in the only way he knew … from deep disappointment and a desire to be loved as if his notoriety were a burden around his neck. He became a man who ran from everyone, into the arms of his Neverland home and his three children. And when it came to children, there were thousands the public did not know about that he helped in numerous ways. Only two posed as a problem—publicly at least—and Dr. Moriarty’s research strongly describes they too were the subjects of sensationalist press.
Finances, lawsuits, trials, accusations of child abuse, two-faced reporting by an English journalist, a naïve trust of others—all worked to create havoc in the life of a man who just wanted to be loved. Defending a King details these behind-the-scenes events, and the trauma that led to his death. Even the ensuing prosecution of his personal physician. Dr. Moriarty’s extensive vocabulary and keen insight lends even more credibility to this unbiased, comprehensive account of a complex, brilliant individual.
When the hype of the media skews the truth, you will find satisfying resolution to your doubts through this extraordinary book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A psychologist's perspective on Michael Jackson., 7 août 2014
Par 
Zack O. Greenburg "Author" (New York, NY) - Voir tous mes commentaires
(VRAI NOM)   
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy (English Edition) (Format Kindle)
Dr. Karen Moriarty’s "Defending A King" may not be a traditional biography, but it offers an intriguing—and humanizing—perspective on the King of Pop.

A trained clinical psychologist, Dr. Moriarty’s most interesting contribution is her professional analysis of Jackson’s actions throughout his life, especially those deemed “strange” by the tabloid media. Of particular note is her “Bizarre Behavior” chapter, in which she points out that “bizarre behavior is normal in bizarre circumstances” and then thoughtfully explains how and why.

Dr. Moriarty delves into the psychology of what it was like to be Michael Jackson, outlining the sort of effects an abusive childhood and a life in the spotlight can have on the human psyche—and underscoring how incredible it was, from a therapist’s perspective, that Jackson turned out to be such a kind and gentle human being (at least outside of the boardroom, where Jackson was quite tenacious) given his upbringing.

The material from Dr. Moriarty’s interviews with Tom Mesereau and Michael Jackson’s bodyguards is also compelling; other parts of her book could have benefitted from more of that sort of primary source research and a bit more editing. But her professional perspective on the inner workings of Michael Jackson alone made the book a worthwhile read for anyone looking to gain a new understanding of the King of Pop.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great addition to your MJ library, 10 juillet 2014
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy (English Edition) (Format Kindle)
As a Michael Jackson researcher of 30+ years, I rarely find a book about Michael Jackson that offers much information about him that is new to me. I am always looking to learn more about Michael Jackson and to get a glimpse of his life from a fresh perspective, and Dr. Moriarty's "Defending a King~ His Life & Legacy" delivers. Stripped away is the dirt and the lies that the media threw at him throughout his life that sadly many believe to be fact. The reader is taken through his life and the incredible challenges he faced daily that we could never imagine. One line is especially poignant, “He never lived a day free from crisis.” Yet he endured to not only be the consummate entertainer but to help improve the lives of others and help heal the world.

Dr. Moriarty offers new insight into Jackson focusing on the last few years of his life through personal interviews with his security guards. She also offers an overview of his trial thanks to interviews with the brilliant Tom Mesereau, the attorney that defended Michael Jackson in his 2005 trial.

Beyond his perfectionism in his music and performance, Jackson had a desire to heal the world, to aid the sick and suffering of the world. "Defending a King" focuses on these efforts, and his motivation, his feeling that this was simply his mission in life. I hope Jackson fans and non-fans will read this book and come away with a deeper understanding of not only the King of Pop, but of Michael Jackson the man and the devoted father. He worked to make the world a better place and he succeeded more than he knew. Dr. Moriarty helps the reader to understand and celebrate the life of the world's greatest entertainer and kindest humanitarian.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exceptional and well written. By Donna Massa-Chappee May 1 2014, 6 mai 2014
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Defending a King His Life & Legacy (Broché)
If you were to define a king the definition would be: One who rules over a country or province. He shall rule over the people maintaining peace and order, and within his kingdom are his loyal servants or subjects.
In history there have been good kings and bad kings. The way in which they intend to rule subjected their people to be at the mercy of their decisions resulting in either harmony or destruction.
In the book Defending a King this humble majesty is a very unique and different king who's sole purpose is to rule over his people with unconditional love, forgiveness, acceptance, dedication and service. Quite the opposite of the definition of a traditional king. In reading this incredible book every detail about Michael Jackson's entire life is personified in an eloquent manner treating his reputation with respect, honor, and reverence. He is presented to us as a royal king with riches, values, and earthly possession's that are shared with all humanity. His connections are one with a higher source, that of an even greater king. Karen captures the true essence of Michael's whole being and shares her knowledge with reputable facts and careful research. Every piece of information she provides us with, is as if the king himself had written it. I truly enjoyed reading this powerful and informative book about the King of Pop. A king indeed who walked among us without authority or judgment, power or greed, but sacrifice. He was richer then any entitled king who has ever ruled on this earth. Without a kingdom, crown, sword, or throne he was born with the riches and gifts to "Change The World."
If you want to know everything about the real King of Pop read Defending a King. It is a book written like no other, with exceptional determination, spirit and service. Karen's work and dedication to this humble and noble king is what makes this book richer than gold...

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy (English Edition) (Format Kindle)
Not so long ago, I became interested in Michael Jackson and his life ... I was struck by how much this man could open for me. And for that I am grateful to him! I read and watched a lot of interviews, articles and books about him. And despite everything, I believe him and defend him! For me it was a pleasant surprise opening the book Defending A King ~ His Life Legacy. I started reading this book not so long ago, but it has already won my heart! Dr. Karen Moriarty writes easily and understandably.… The book is read in one breath… and flipping through page after page, it interests you more and more! In this book there is invested so much love and work, thoughts and feelings that I can safely say that this book is very special; this book is not like the others about Michael. And for that I love and appreciate the book and the author! ♥♥♥ The book is not merely a series of pictures in my head.... It allows you to experience many emotions ... tears and sometimes smiles. And that's fine!!! Nowadays such books are becoming fewer and fewer. There are many thoughts and words that make you think ... and look at Michael in a different way..... This book has opened a lot to me.... And even now I am very impressed about it. It touched my heart!!! And I want to say thank you, Dr. Moriarty, for this masterpiece. She spent a lot of effort to give us this great book!!! This book is amazing... and I suggest to everyone who is not indifferent to Michael and his work to read this book!!! ♥♥♥ Katya Belozyorova

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is a great tribute, to a great musical legend, 3 mars 2014
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy (English Edition) (Format Kindle)
Dr. Karen Moriarty first began her research as a ghost writer for Michael Jackson’s Las Vegas bodyguards. Unfortunately after a parting of the ways, Moriarty decided to write her own book and judging by this 500 plus volume, Michael’s bodyguards would have been best advised sticking with her. Unlike some money driven books, ‘Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy’ tells the story as it should rightly be written, objectively and compassionately.

I’ve read a lot about Michael Jackson over the years and the majority are just rehashed one eyed tabloid garbage. However, this book is written in such an entertaining, intelligent and bright way that I found myself wanting to read more, even when I needed a break to rest my eyes. I’ll admit I’ve read most what’s in the book, but the way Dr. Karen Moriarty writes and presents it; I found it very enjoyable and quite refreshing from other books I’ve read. Some tabloid authors, as I call them here, but far worse in private conversations, are far too interested in attacking Michael Jackson’s character, without bothering to examine the real man himself. However, Dr. Karen Moriarty rises above this to give her readers a far more intellectual view.

This book is a great tribute, to a great musical legend, that history seems to want to all but forget. Reading this may give people who continually sit on the fence about Michael Jackson a better insight in to Michael’s life the last few years before his sad death. Well done Dr. Karen Moriarty for an entertaining book.

She gives in-depth explanations to some of the major aspects of the later years of Michael's life.This gives the reader a insight on what it was like to be him.This book is a definite must have for his fans.

Not the man the media portrayed. NOTE TO THE AUTHOR..Karen Moriarty I Loved the book Karen & can not thank you enough for such an insight into Michaels life.
