Making Michael: Inside the Career of Michael Jackson

Making Michael: Inside the Career of Michael Jackson

Making Michael delves deep inside the career of one of the most successful, enigmatic and controversial entertainers of all time: Michael Jackson.

Side-stepping sensationalism, journalist Mike Smallcombe enters uncharted territory as he takes you behind the scenes to reveal the real Jackson, a man few people ever got to know.
 
Interviewing over sixty of Jackson’s associates including managers, lawyers, music executives, producers, musicians and engineers – many of whom are speaking about their experiences publicly for the first time – he provides exclusive access to one of the biggest-selling recording artists in history.
 
Featuring a foreword by Matt Forger, one of Jackson’s longest serving and most loyal collaborators, Making Michael takes readers into the studio with the King of Pop, charting the creation of record-breaking albums including Thriller, BadDangerous and HIStory and the twists and turns that occurred along the way. Untold stories, revelations and secrets finally see the light of day as Jackson’s career outside the studio is also examined.
 
Smallcombe remains objective and doesn’t shy away from exploring the fall outs, Jackson’s relentless pursuit of perfectionism and a cutthroat shrewdness and competitiveness few knew existed.

    Excellent book on Michael’s life and career, June 8, 2016
    By 
    This review is from: Making Michael: Inside the Career of Michael Jackson (Paperback)
    I received a copy of this book from the author, with a request to read and review it. Michael is a close friend and has been an important person in my life, so I was interested to read it. Looking at the reviews that have already been posted, I noticed a number of them that said they hated the book, but gave almost no reason for feeling that way. Some said all the information Mike put into the book was false. I did not notice anything I knew to be false. In fact a lot of what Mike put in this book fits in very well with my own experience of Michael, those critics should be more specific. In any case, as someone with a strong love for Michael as a close brother, I thought the book was great and that Mike did an excellent job. It comes from a totally different perspective than the book by Micheal’s brother that gives a view from inside the family, but I thought in its own way it was just as good, in terms of what I got from it. For me, reading Mike’s book was a great experience, and one more chance to feel like I was back re-living Michael’s life one more time, and I appreciate the chance to do that. As an important side note, I would really like to see someone expose what was behind Michael’s murder, which took place shortly after he said in an interview he was getting ready for a major expose’ of the criminal cartel running the world from behind the scenes. So far, I know of no one with the details required for a real verified story on that. Of course, those who planned Michael’s death (not covered in the book) would have had to find another way to do it, if Michael had not naively trusted in the medical industry and doctors in general. Micheal was not aware that the medical industry is the number one cause of death in America. The individual doctors are often brilliant and wonderful people, but they are given a false information on health and disease, and are unwittingly working for the medical drug cartel that wants people permanently impaired and addicted. This is an area of my personal expertise, and I try to give this awareness to those that need to find the superior alternatives and avoid becoming victims of the system.
    As far as Mike’s book is concerned, for me, reading it was a very enjoyable experience, and I think it is a beautiful gift to the world, giving another perspective on the life and career of one of the most underappreciated and greatest men of our time. Thank you Mike, I appreciate your excellent work, I thought it was great.
