    1. I read this book in three stages starting first from Chapter 14 Invincible And reading through to the end, since this is the most confusing as well as intriguing time for Michael s business affairs, in my opinion, and probably the time least understood when the topic is raised in articles I then went back to the Dangerous and HIStory years, and finally, having satisfied my curiosity about my favourite eras, started back at the beginning of the book.A lot of information in Michael Jackson, Inc is [...]

    2. Michael Jackson, the undisputed King of Pop, was at a time, the most in demand entertainer and famous person in the world earning approximately 1Billion USD over the course of his lifetime.While no one would dispute his obvious talent onstage, his unconventional antics off it garnered him his other famous moniker Wacko Jacko.Love him or hate him, Greenburg s book goes deep behind the powerhouse that was the Jackson brand, showing a business savvy and shrewd operator who s main downfall was lack [...]

    4. As Zack Greenburg walks his reader through the maze of Michael Jackson s financial life, he demonstrates how the thread that ran through all of the phenomenal, record breaking successes of the King of Pop was the man himself.As in most things Michael Jackson, the media have typically provided over the top and misleading coverage of MJ s business dealings, overlooking his entrepreneurial prowess, visionary acumen, and genius Zack reveals the surprising inside stories of MJ s acquisition of the la [...]

    5. To be honest I was pretty much hesitant to read this book, I had it on my shelf for so long before finally forcing myself to read it The book has great potential and the author is crafty, however, for a person who spent many years studying, researching and following every aspect of Michael s life and death I found many gaps in Zack s book.To be clear, it seemed to me that the author didn t research well He claimed to have over 100 sources but he seemed to only take John Branca s account on almo [...]

    6. Zack O Malley Greenburg has done his research and interviews for his book and it shows This book could have gotten bogged down with information about Michael Jackson s personal life but Greenburg never let s that happen He assumes that the reader has some knowledge of the performer and focuses mostly on his business life Discussing how Jackson at a young age already showed a giving nature by taking the money earned performing with the Jackson 5 and buying candy for other children in the neighbor [...]

    7. I found this book fascinating on several levels First of all, just on a human level, I loved hearing about the beginnings of MJ s music career singing with his siblings in the Jackson 5 It was there that not just his family but other critics saw a unique talent in Michael that was not present in the other members of the singing group Joe Jackson, MJ s father, started out managing the Jackson 5 and then seeing that MJ had unique talent, began pushing him to sing The rest is history As he became [...]

    8. It took a while getting through this book, because I found myself going to YouTube again and again to see the video that matched the songs mentioned in the book It was a real breath of fresh air watching the young Michael Jackson singing and dancing with his brothers Even at such a young age, it is quite evident that he had great talent.The book also mentions a documentary about Michael s life The documentary is a very slanted, sensational look at Michael s facial surgeries and sleepovers Greenb [...]

    9. Since I was 5 years old I became a Michael Jackson fan, thanks to his BAD album and worldwide dominion at the time I remember seeing magic manifest on TV and I was hooked Now at age 32 I am grateful to have been alive when the King of Pop was alive I remember where I was in particular instances of my life when a new song, a new video and any new venture came out from Him Basically I am his biggest fan on the small island of Malta, and that sure would suffice as an under statement.As a fan I high [...]

    10. Michael Jackson, Inc is a well researched book that details and transitions well from one chapter of Michael s life to the next The layout and order of the book helped me to understand a little completely how and where Michael s commanding oversight and financial wisdom may have been overtaken by doubts and poor decisions which is what I found myself struggling with after recently reading Remember the Time about the last years of Michael Jackson s life The first hand interviews and cited source [...]

    11. I really enjoyed this book I think Zack did an amazing job of interviewing a lot of people and compiling a lot of info into a book that is packed with a lot of facts and figures and details but is still thoroughly entertaining I think this book is the best book on the market, maybe the only book on the market, when it comes to Michael Jackson as a business man It really gives an in depth look into Michael as the great business man that he was and I think it is a must read for any Michael Jackson [...]

    12. A fascinating look behind the scenes of the MJ empire and a look into his life pre, during and post his heyday and untimely death I can remember hearing a lot of the crazy press and allegations that surrounded him when I was growing up, it is nice to hear a balanced and objective viewpoint and to find out about the whole person Clearly a troubled individual with obsessive perfectionist tenancies when it came to his work but a lot of very positive things about him too and a whole lot about the [...]

    13. Informative and nonjudgmental The author went with the facts as described in court documents, speaking with the people in Michael Jackson s circle, and those that have spoken openly on television interviews ie Lisa Marie Presley on Oprah, etc But the author wrote in a way that it did not make the reading boring Which can be difficult when speaking of numbers, profit, inflation.Overall an excellent book for Michael Jackson fans.

    14. This a great book that humanizes Michael Jackson It sticks to the facts of his financial success and misfortunes For both Michael Jackson fans of every generation and those who are unaware of Michael Jackson s legacy, I recommend this book Further, this book reveals how Michael Jackson s business ventures paved the way for today s artist I m sure tomorrow s new artist will thank Michael Jackson in some way.

    15. Loved it The author has written in such a way as to allow less business savvy folks to understand MJ enthusiasts and business minded people alike should find this a great read I know a lot about MJ than the average person and I continually found myself thinking I had no idea Michael did that Some great and fascinating information here.

    16. Refreshing and fascinating.Reading about the business mind of Michael Jackon surprisingly showed a side that was not the performer nor the child star but the adult shrewd businessman.To see Michael Jackson in this light is rare for a fan Well researched Great quotes Nice pace Rich profile Good book.It was a breath of fresh air and a quick guide to music business 101 to boot.

    17. For those who want to know MORE about Michael Jackson about how astute and savvy he was when it came to business, you ll want to read this one Michael Jackson was not only a beast on stage he was a beast in the boardroom, too

    18. Not value for money It started really well, the research was very well done but it all went tabloid at the end and lost focus I emphasize I paid a pretty penny for this book and it was certainly not worth it.

    19. I receives this book as a giveaway I felt there could of been just a little there were clues as such but it never came out However I think every MJ fan should read this book insightful and interesting read

    20. Brilliant review of Michael s financial empire throughout his life and death I loved reading the stories throughout from those who had worked with Michael during his lifetime.

    21. A great read, giving a much needed aand rarely thought about look into the business acumen of the greatest entertainer of all time Highly recommended.
