    I really want to read that! I saw it at a second-hand bookstore we have here, but when I went back it was gone

    I also wanna read "Simply the Gest" by David Gest

    I guess the last one I read was one of the MILLION MJ books I have (lol ) or an Audrey Hepburn book, oh and I got a Quincy Jones book from that bookstore previously mentioned.

    I read about Celine Dion last year. She wrote the book by herself.

    It was a book about The Eagles I checked out at the library. I don't recall who the author was.

    I don't wanna start a new thread so I thougt I'll ask here.
    I read JR Taraborelli book about Michael and he writes many times about his conversations with Michael. Is it really true? It sounds like they were friends and talked on the phone about everything, his marriages, money, scandlas. I just can't believe Michael would be so open to him about things like that.

    That book (The Magic & The Madness) came out before MJ was married or any of the accacusations. But I believe that the author was a friend of the family since the 1970s, and has done a lot of interviews with them.

    No, the Magic and the Madness I read came out in 2003 and the author wrote about Chandlers, both marriages, problems with Sony.

    It's hard to say. It's both I think, postive and negative. And like I said I'm not sure if I should believe in his conversations with Michael. Does Taraborelli really know him that well?

    Well, people say it's the best book about Michael you can possibly get. It's definitely better than 'MJ Superstar'. But I didn't buy 'the Magic and the Madness', I borrowed it from a friend, read it once and that's enough for me.

    Must be a new version, because I bought the book when it 1st came out in 1991.

    Well, I like "the magic and the madness" (first edition, NOT the second so much- i have 'em both, and I like the first better) and I know there are ppl that dont like it, but I do. I read it alot.

    And to my previous post above....I finally bought and just finished David Gest's bio., so that is the last one I've read.
