Best book ever, January 27, 2013
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.

A Protest!, January 26, 2013
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.

This Book is Being Trashed by Jackson Fans, January 25, 2013
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
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
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.
