Michael Jackson: The Visual Documentary a Book Review

Updated on February 16, 2011

I actually bought Michael Jackson Visual Documentary before his untimely passing in 2009. I bought another edition, which was comprehensive in itself. The latest edition. The book was penned by long time Michael Jackson fan and friend Adrian Grant. This tribute edition is an amazing series of photos and reflections on the King of Pop.

This book details and pictures the beginning to the every end of Michael’s life. From the start of his career in the Jackson five, right up until his announcement of his final concerts. This is a book is the perfect book for any Michael Jackson fan. If you loved and still loved this amazing human being then you will adore this book.

The Visual Documentary is a keepsake, something that you can display alongside your Michael Jackson collection of memories. There is a full discography of everything Michael Jackson has ever done. The pictures are in full color, some in black and white, and they are all of some of the most amazing moments in the singer’s career.

This book is a must have for any avid Michael Jackson fan. There are over 200 pages of interesting information regarding MJ as well as 240 wonderful pictures. You will get to see pictures of MJ’s family history, The Wiz, Smooth Criminal and various other milestones in his spectacular career.

I bought the original for myself but I was given the latest edition as a gift from a client. I would strongly recommend this Michael Jackson book to all those who want to respect the memory of the King of Pop.

If you know anything about the author Adrian Grant, you will know that he is a lifelong Michael Jackson fan and a well-known advocate of the MJ brand. He has not only written several publications relating to Michael Jackson. He has also produced the world renowned Thriller Live which has been extended because of MJ’s untimely death.

One great thing about this book is the fact that it speaks the truth. It does not talk about tabloid garbage but simply speaks the truth.  If you want to read about Michael Jackson in a positive light, then the visual documentary is for you.

The Visual Documentary is a shining example of a straightforward tribute to the King of Pop.

Where can you purchase the Visual Documentary? You can buy the visual documentary from most book outlets. However, the cheapest place to purchase it is probably Amazon. They are currently selling it for just over $16, which is a good price. You can also get free shipping on this because this item is eligible for supersaver shipping.

      Yes a major tragic loss. I loved him deeply for his talent and exceptional music. I will never forget him as long as I live.

      No matter what people think of his character he was one of the best performers of all time. His music brings tears to my eyes.

      I was in my car yesterday when "I'll Be There" came on the radio. He was a little snippet of a boy but had a huge voice.

      A tragic loss to our music industry.
