    I thought this book was profoundly touching. I like reading the perspectives given from different ones who knew and were close to MJ. As a fan, I greatly appreciated this book. It gave me another glimpse into who Michael was as a person and how he was around other people. This book was beautifully written. Well done.

  • Honest Book

    By PharaohSteve
    I was initially worried that this would be a terrible cash in from someone who appeared to be a close friend of Michael's for a number of years. Luckily I was wrong, this is an incredible book! I have been a life long MJ fan and I'm so happy to read stories of how normal he truly was. The story of Michael, Eddie Murphy, and Madonna is a favorite!
  • Very moving

    Frank's story of his friendship with Michael drew me in from the very first page. I found myself waking up in the middle of the night to read because I wanted to know what adventure lay ahead throughout the story. Thank you Frank "Tyson" Casico for sharing your story.

  • A Must Read

    By Romantical65
    This book is a refreshing perspective in that these stories are one on one experiences from the author and not here say like so much written about Michael. This book is not written as an opportunity to cash in on Michael's name, but rather a heartfelt journey between Michael and the author filled with camaraderie, tears, life's lessons, loyalty and love. A better understanding of the complicated life of Michael Jackson is revealed. This book will make you feel like your reading about an old friend rather than a bunch of Hollywood hype. Thank you Frank Casico for sharing your journey with Michael.
