    My girlfriend surprised me with this book last night as an early Valentine's Day gift........completely didn't see that coming!!! I had just been looking at it on Amazon a couple days earlier after seeing this thread and was planning on buying it when the $$ was right. I haven't scratched the surface of it yet but I am THOROUGHLY impressed so far. I consider myself a pretty knowledgeable fan of MJ's but I'm sure a large percentage of info in this massive book is gonna be new to me (hopefully)......its like Christmas again!!! lol
    Rock on,
    Eric

    Thanks for the info about the book! I hadn't heard about it before! Looks really interesting. And I saw they have Best of Joy listed as well so I think I'll buy that book. I really wanna know more about the "new" songs since we know so little about them. Just hoping the information is accurate....

    Is there any new info for the hardcore fans? Joe Vogels book for instance was great to read, but hardly shared new insights.
    And does it cover only album tracks, or also outtakes, posthumous stuff and unreleased stuff?

    It talks about all released songs, including the material on MICHAEL, XSCAPE and other known about demos.

    ^ I'll add there are a few take away stories that I doubt fans have heard (or remember).. in studio stories and so on.

    Share some small stories of the book so we can all see if it's interesting or not.
    I've always been interested in the background story of "be not always" and "shake your body down to the ground".
