Revue de presse

"If you want an eye-opening portrayal of the real Michael Jackson -- delivered in a rare blend of disclosure, respect, insight, and passion -- this it it!" - Thomas A. Mesereau, Jr.

A Psychologists Take on Michael Jackson.

Dr. Karen Moriartys "Defending A King" may not be a traditional biography, but it offers an intriguingand humanizingperspective on the King of Pop.

A trained clinical psychologist, Dr. Moriartys most interesting contribution is her professional analysis of Jacksons 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,  underscoring how incredible it was, from a therapists perspective, that Jackson turned out to be such a kind and gentle human being  given his upbringing.
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.
                                                                  -- Zack OMalley Greenburg, Senior Editor, Forbes Magazine & Author, "Michael Jackson, Inc."

Truly engaging  the real story at last!

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 [Michael Jackson]....

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....

When the hype of the media skews the truth, you will find satisfying resolution to your doubts through this extraordinary book.                                                               
                                              -- Kenneth R. Overman, Author, "A Lion in Spring"

MORE THAN a Michael Jackson Biography -- AN EMOTIONAL JOURNEY….

Today, in spite of volumes of printed material and a world of cyberspace about Michael Jackson, there is little accurate published information about the real, flesh-and-blood man from first-hand witnesses. Until now.

Revealed in this biography are Michael Jackson's last four mysterious years: where he and his children went, what he did, and how he spent his time.

An in-depth portrayal of Michael Jackson -- the global "King of Pop" -- Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy discloses new information and unique insights into this "king of a man." This book explains Michael Jackson’s torturous life with an emphasis on his triumphs over his adversities and challenges.

More controversial in life and in death than anyone else, Michael Jackson's goodness has been mostly overshadowed or ignored. This volume needs to be affixed to the legacy of his genius and greatness.

"Bizarre circumstances demand bizarre behavior." Dr. Moriarty leads her reader through the maze of stunningly bizarre circumstances in which Michael Jackson lived and struggled, through private joys and suffering as a real person ... at the absolute and dizzying pinnacle of human existence.


In 19 chapters, you will discover & experience the complex and colorful kaleidoscope that was the life of Michael Jackson….

From the introduction we read about a king: a king under siege not only by those close to him but also by those far away. This humble, soft spoken, kind hearted, gentle, vulnerable man had a giant heart for children, for the suffering and the poor. The king could not sleep and a doctor was brought to him. The doctor’s advisors commissioned him to make sure the king could perform, at any cost. After being administered a powerful poison, the king finally fell asleep, not to awaken again. Dr. Karen Moriarty’s book begins with the question: How could this happen to a king?

She describes Michael Jackson as a modern-day Rorschach Inkblot Test. Tell me what you think and feel about Michael Jackson and I will and can tell who you are. Is your heart wide open or closed? Michael’s was. Are you judgmental? Are you forgiving, compassionate? Who are you?

Because of Dr. Karen Moriarty’s expertise and background as a psychologist and therapist for many years, she has the ability to read people. And in her words," I have never met a person who was more persecuted than Michael Jackson."

Moriarty’s book is carefully researched from his family to his finances to the trials. I have been researching and blogging about Michael Jackson’s death for five years. When a friend’s husband grilled me about Michael, his first question was: “What about sex? Who was he having sex with?” And that is the sad state of our culture. Why is it not okay to attribute an all-encompassing love for children to a man in our culture? Why the need to be suspicious and dirty? Our culture is obsessed with sex and it’s the cynics that made something pure and innocent, into something evil. Moriarty delves into this topic and so much more.

5 Stars Rave Review

Early on in "Defending a King His Life His Legacy" by Dr. Karen Moriarty's she writes, " Michael Jackson is like a modern-day Rorschach Inkblot Test." "Tell me what you think and feel about Michael Jackson. What you see in him, and I can tell you much about yourself. How open is your heart, how wide is your perspective, how perceptive is your mind, how tolerate are your attitudes." Upon reading those lines I knew I had in my hands a book which was written by a human being who had been touched by the love only The Man himself can cause to effect. I was compelled to stop and write what I thought about Michael before I continued reading. I wanted to have an accounting of myself at the book's end. Only truly motivational and sacred writing can affect a reader in this manner.

Karen is a gifted writer and has brought to the world a comprehensive and moving presentation of the life and journey of a man who was born to embody the potential we are all capable of et, few ever achieve. I have read many books on Michael's life as I am a life long devotee. I have enjoyed this one the most finding in it's pages the nearest mirror to him I've ever witnessed. Karen's conviction and forthright dedication in the writing of this book is admirable and tells us much about the author herself from the manner in which she has exulted her subject matter and literature to a higher art form. You will be richer for having read her work and coming to know the Michael Jackson she introduces you to through her looking glass.

Michael Jackson is the most beautiful person I've ever had the honor of knowing from afar! I wish I could have gotten to meet him! I grew up defending his honor from the first rumor! Michael is truly an angel kissed by God! His heart and soul illuminates with light and color straight from the heart of God almighty! Praise God for Michael and praise God for Jesus Christ who saved his beautiful soul! Michael's beautiful voice is comforting to hear and his energy is warm and caring! On stage, his energy explodes into a breath taking light show, he don't need Fireworks to preform! In '87, my mother introduced me to his music, Bad was my first song! I was 3 years old and all I could see was light and colors! Michael is an amazing person! His soul shines brighter when he is happy and even brighter when he is helping children! Michael's faith in God is inspiring and beautiful, it makes me feel so humble in my soul! It makes me feel so sad that some people can't see the amazing light that shines from Michael's beautiful soul, Jesus Christ is truly in his heart And he lived in God's beautiful light! We fans (MoonWalkers) love Michael so much and respect him as a man and a human being, we could have allowed him to go outside and maybe walk down the street to a corner store to buy a pack of big red bubble gum! We could stop the media from taking pictures by grabbing their cameras and running the opposite way from Michael, don't brake the camera, just play keep away! I love you all MoonWalkers around the world for loving Michael and making his life worth living in the midst of all the madness! God bless you all and I pray that you will be touched by God when you read this beautiful true story about the real Michael Jackson that some people can't understand!Lire la suite ›
