Description

Jermaine Jackson—older than Michael by four years—offers a keenly observed memoir tracing his brother's life starting from their shared childhood and extending through the Jackson 5 years, Michael's phenomenal solo career, his loves, his suffering, and his tragic end. It is a sophisticated, no-holds-barred examination of the man, aimed at fostering a true and final understanding of who he was, why he was, and what shaped him.

Jermaine knows the real Michael as only a brother can. In this raw, honest, and poignant account, he reveals Michael the private person, not Michael "the King of Pop."

Jermaine doesn't flinch from tackling the tough issues: the torrid press, the scandals, the allegations, the court cases, the internal politics, the ill-fated This Is It tour, and disturbing developments in the days leading up to Michael's death. But where previous works have presented only thin versions of a media construct, he provides a rare glimpse into the complex heart, mind, and soul of a brilliant but sometimes troubled entertainer. As a witness to history on the inside, Jermaine is the only person qualified to deliver the real Michael and reveal what made him tick, his private opinions, and unseen emotions through the most headline-making episodes of his life.

Filled with keen insight, rich in anecdotes and behind-the-scenes detail, You Are Not Alone is the book for any true Michael Jackson fan and for anyone trying to make sense of the artist whose death was so premature.

    First, let me admit that I was never a Jackson 5 or Michael Jackson fan as I just casually admired their music. Since the book was written be Jermaine Jackson I thought the book would be a totally biased "puff piece" but is was not. It is biased which is natural for a brother to defend his brother. But beyond this, the book shows the negative side of Papa Joseph Jackson's dominance of the family in the early years. The author also writes about many of the inter family squabbles over the years. So, I do believed the book was worth reading and it did give me a more sympathetic outlook toward Michael's struggles and a greater appreciation for his art, his work ethic and his charitable nature.
