'This is the truth as we know it. I have read so much about what people think they know about Michael, but this is about what really happened.' Jermaine Jackson You Are Not Alone is an intimate, loving portrait of Michael Jackson, illuminating the private man like never before. It is an invitation into Michael's real character, private insights and hidden feelings: the innermost thoughts of a fiercely private individual. Jermaine Jackson knew Michael like only a brother can. In You Are Not Alone Jermaine brings light to the man behind the mask of superstardom, an identity that has lingered in the shadows for too long. You Are Not Alone is a celebration of the real Michael: the boy who shared a tiny bunkbed with Jermaine at 2300 Jackson Street, Gary, Indiana; the brother with whom Jermaine shared laughter, tears and memories; the boy who would grow up to become a legend. Raw, honest and incredibly moving, You Are Not Alone is also a sophisticated, no-holds-barred examination of Michael Jackson, aimed at fostering a true and final understanding of who he was and what shaped him. This is Michael Jackson -- the man, not the legend -- through a brother's eyes. If you love Michael Jackson, this is the only book you will want to read. If you think you know the Michael Jackson story, it's time to think again.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Limited 2011 Paperback, 2011. Condition: Very Good. An intimate, loving portrait of Michael Jackson--illuminating the private man like never before, offering unrivaled access into a rarefied world. Jermaine Jackson--older than Michael by four years--offers a keenly observed and surprisingly candid memoir tracing Michael's life starting with their shared childhood and extending through the Jackson 5 years, Michael's phenomenal solo career, his loves, his suffering, and his tragic end which sparked worldwide grief. It is a sophisticated, no-holds-barred examination of the man, aimed at fostering a true and final understanding of who he was, why he was, and what shaped him. Jermaine Jackson knows the real Michael Jackson like only a brother can. In this raw, honest, and poignant account, he reveals the Michael he knew so well and understood, perhaps better than anyone else--Michael the private person, not Michael 'The King of Pop.' The Michael he started out with in a tiny house at 2300 Jackson Street in Gary, Indiana. The brother, the son, the father, the complex--the unknown Michael. Jermaine will not flinch from tackling the tough issues. He covers it all: the torrid press, the scandals, the allegations, the court cases, the internal politics, the ill-fated AEG tour. But where previous works have presented only thin versions of a media construct, Jermaine will provide a glimpse into the complex heart, mind, and soul of a genius but troubled entertainer. As Michael's confidante--and a witness to history on the inside--Jermaine Jackson is the only person qualified to deliver the real Michael and reveal his innermost thoughts, opinions, and emotions through the most headline-making episodes of his life. Filled with keen insight, rich in anecdotes and behind-the-scenes detail, 'You Are Not Alone 'is the book for any true Michael Jackson fan, and for anyone trying to make sense of the troubled artist whose tragic death was so premature. 432 pages.
