Best book ever, January 27, 2013
By
Eric C. Schwartz (Los Angeles, CA)

I am glad that someone finally addressed Michael Jackson. I hope on day people fully recognize his art. Oh and his fanboys need to relax.

REPORT as breaking Amazon rule: Spiteful
Objectionable material:
• Obscene or distasteful content
• Profanity or spiteful remarks
• Promotion of illegal or immoral conduct

5.0 out of 5 stars
A Protest!, January 26, 2013
By
David K. Woods

I purchases this book primarily because I do not appreciate the organized effort by fans of the subject to dictate what is available for me to read. Even the attempt is a very bad precedent. If you do not like the book do not buy it but do not try to eliminate it from the market via a digital book burning.

REPORT doenst meet Amazon Guidelines

• Include the "why": The best reviews include not only whether you liked or disliked a product, but also why. Feel free to talk about related products and how this item compares to them.
• Be specific: Your review should focus on specific features of the product and your experience with it. For video reviews, we recommend that you write a brief introduction.

This Book is Being Trashed by Jackson Fans, January 25, 2013
By
Gray Wolfe (Palo Alto, CA) -
: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson (Hardcover)
I have not read this book, but have read some honest reviews of it and of the campaign by Jackson fans to unfairly trash the book because it presents some unflattering information about Michael Jackson. See [...]
for more information on the smear campaign. Michael Jackson was an incredibly talented individual, but it is clear that he had a deeply troubled and troubling life. I rated the book five stars because I believe it deserves a fair airing and I want to negate some of the damage done by the cadre of sock puppets who are unfairly attacking the book.

Amazon needs to do a better job at protecting this forum from these highly biased attacks. Reading a number of the highly negative reviews of this book it becomes clear that many of the reviewers have no interests besides censoring any negative information on their idol. If these kinds of attacks are permitted then any politically or socially sensitive material will be driven from the marketplace. When it stops being possible to criticize our entertainers, or our religious and political leaders then we will have lost a fundamental freedom. If we cannot tolerate negative commentary of Michael Jackson, imagine how hard it could become to publish material on the president (Bush or Obama).

REPORT- Can't give opinion, cite book or give reason for review - HAS not read the book so how can he review?

Great read about a messed up pedophile star, January 22, 2013
By
mj is a raging pedo - Pretty decent read, some things might be wrong, but most key points are right on. Way too many people bitc**** and whining about this book because of the truth it tells about Michael Jackson being messed up mentally, ran around after little boys and kept their underwear in his nightstand as keepsakes in his "special" secret room which was decorated like a child's room.[...]

People need to stop being so stupid, giving this book false ratings because of what it says about MJ and the messed up things he did

REPORT as spiteful and profane

Don't bother listening to the angry hoards..., January 22, 2013

Brad Greenwood

The negative reviewers are out in force to cause the book to tank because their "hero" is painted in an unflattering light.

Read UNBIASED reviews elsewhere.

REPORT – Doesn’t follow guideline for stating WHY they read or reiewed the book. Instead attack with SPITE “hero”

I reported a whole bunch of those for not following Amazon's own guidelines and Amazon refused to do anything about it. I think it's b/c Sara Nelson is the new review editor and she is a friend of Sullivan. Anyway, they don't care and let these reviews stand. I tried and got the wall in my face.

Re: Randall Sullivan's new book "Untouchable"

Jamba don't worry, because we are winning. At least you get the satisfaction of knowing that you did your best and it made a difference in the way Nelson, Sullivan & Wyman did not expect.

Re: Randall Sullivan's new book "Untouchable"

Lots of people who didn't buy the game Sim City have been spamming 1 star reviews on to Amazon about it because of a huge campaign involving thousands of people (and not some some facebook group by a small percentage of fans)

http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/19wqhb/sim_city_is_on_pace_to_be_the_worst_rated_product/

I'm just posting that because I want to see if The New York Times will write a story about those fake reviews, or if it's only some weird agenda they have with MJ fans being allowed to accurately review books.

any book that is full of lies will flop because Michael's fans know the truth and no one will buy a shark's book!

What did Randall Sullivan say about Jordan Chandler in his book? I listened to him on an old interview saying how there's reason to doubt Michael's innocence in that case and that he talked to some of the chandler family about Jordan ( he talked to Ray and Jordy's brother) apparently Jordy's brother does believe Michael molested Jordy and how it ruined their family. Also Aphrodite Jones admitted she has her doubts about his innocence with Jordan Chandler because of June Chandlers testimony.

What on Earth are you talking about?

Aphrodite Jones does not doubt Michael's innocence!!

Why did you make this your very first post on the forum, in a thread that is nine years old?!?!

I personally doubt the prosthetic noses story. If Michael had multiple different prosthetic noses (why would he not have just one, or multiple of the same one?) Karen Faye would've known about it and mentioned it by now. But instead she mentions him being horrified and insulted at a director implying he should have a prosthetic nose for the "You Rock My World" music video. He ran into a room and had a emotional meltdown, and if I'm not wrong said, "They think I'm a monster". If Michael had been using fake noses for years then there would be no reason for him to be insulted at someone implying he needs one (since according to this story, he could've just put another one on).

I also doubt the stories about his family. They were leeching off his success somewhat, but I highly doubt that Janet would be involved in this. She's always been supportive and defending Michael, more than any other sibling. I might be able to see LaToya involved in some scheme, but even then that might be unwillingly. Now Joseph? Joseph I could see trying to guilt MJ out of money time after time.

I agree I didn't like how he left the Jordan Chandler situation open. Also if Randall truly interviewed Jordy's family then why did he say that Jordy's brother's hate Michael and believe that he did molest Jordy when Jordy has one brother. Also did he even ask why they thought he did it, was it Jordy himself that told them that? Hell why didn't he interview Jordy himself? It's odd that Randall didn't even give a reason as to why Jordy and Evan fell out in 2005?

I understand that the post is 9 years old, I just recently came across an old radio interview on YouTube when Aphrodite Jones was on King Jordan Radio and she talked about June Chandler's testimony, how she was unnerved by it while she was testifying and that she doubted Michael's innocence in the Jordan Chandler case, don't get me wrong she didn't say he was guilty but what June said on the stand made Aphrodite feel uncomfortable but in the end she said "I guess we'll never know" if you don't believe me, look for a Youtube video called Aphrodite Jones about Jordan Chandler/Michael Jackson case 1993 at King Jordan Radio, be sure to type it exactly how I did, it's a 3 minute video.

I am not trying to start anything I was just asking a question and yeah I get it's an old post but I felt like I could trust the fans to answer in a civil way since this is a fan page.
