Product Overview

''Michael Jackson: The Man behind the Mask'' is the INSIDE STORY of the truth behind the rumors, ugliness and mystery surrounding Michael Jackson. Is Jackson just a confused person who got too much fame too soon or is he a cold and calculating villain who will stop at nothing to have his bizarre appetites satisfied? Now you can read about it for the first time from the man who knows everything! The author, Bob Jones, is not a journalist conducting interviews but somebody who has known and been with Jackson for 34 years as his chief of Public Relations; by his side since Michael was 11 years old. Bob Jones is the one person with this unique inside view of Michael Jackson''s world. To a certain degree, Bob Jones CREATED Michael Jackson. He created his image. For example, Bob Jones created Michael Jackson''s famous nickname ''The King of Pop''. This book is explosive and will make any other book about Michael Jackson instantly forgotten. You won''t find this inside information anywhere else.

From the Publisher
Annotation While the truth about Michael Jackson's reported liaisons with a succession of young boys may never be known, one of his closest associates has no doubt as to the King of Pop's intentions. Bob Jones was associated with the Jackson camp for nearly 35 years, spending many of them as the singer's public-relations manager. This relationship ended abruptly in 2004 with a curt letter from Jackson's lawyer--a move of questionable wisdom given the amount of dirt Jones dishes here. He unveils a laundry list of bad behavior, including Jackson's attempts to derail his siblings' careers when they threatened to overshadow his own, and problematic relationships with young boys at least a decade before allegations of sexual abuse were first leveled against him. (Jackson also allegedly displayed a tenuous grasp of movie analysis when he claimed to have wept during a screening of the Will Smith comedy sci-fi vehicle MEN IN BLACK.) While most of these allegations are unsubstantiated, and Jones's motives likely driven by an urge for revenge, Jackson emerges as at best an eccentric figure, and at worst a man extremely fortunate to have escaped jail time.
