The King of Popâ€™s sudden death on 25th June 2009 shocked the world, and a glut of hastily written biographies quickly followed, but this book is different: this book is a revised and expanded edition of the no.1 best selling Michael Jackson book on amazon.com, in the days and weeks following his passing.
The first edition of â€˜Michael Jackson: For The Recordâ€™, published in 2007, was Chris Cadman & Craig Halsteadâ€™s fourth book about the King of Pop and, like their previous books, it focused on what Michaelâ€™s legion of fans want to read about: his music.
Hereâ€™s what a couple of Michael Jackson fan sites had to say about the first edition:
â€˜â€¦it’s an incredible guide for Michael collectors and fans alike. Cadman and Halstead are wonderful researchers, and have amassed a wealth of information in this work…â€™
(MJ News Online)
â€˜If I had to say, what sticks out most in my overall view of the book, I would have to say: dedication. So much information, so much attention to details, and so precisely gathered.â€™
Now, in response to numerous requests from Michael Jackson fans around the world, Cadman & Halstead have completely revised and expanded their best selling â€˜For The Recordâ€™. As well as detailing the hundreds of songs Michael was involved with over the years, solo and with his brothers, the second editions also focuses on the King of Popâ€™s albums, his home videos, his films and short films, his books and his chart successes, and it includes complete USA & UK discographies. The book, like the first edition, is published by Authors On Line Ltd.
Only now, following his tragic death at the age of 50, is Michael Jacksonâ€™s genius being recognised. Berry Gordy, founder of Motown Records, stated: â€˜The more I think about Michael, and talk about Michael, the more I think that King of Pop is not good enough. I think he is simply the greatest entertainer that ever lived.â€™
Nearly all the books published about Michael Jackson, since his passing, fall into one of three categories: heavily illustrated books, books focusing on the scandals in his private life, and rushed biographies written in 3-4 weeks or less. Michaelâ€™s ever loyal fans want and deserve more â€“ and they will find it in â€˜Michael Jackson: For The Recordâ€™.
