In a career spanning four decades, Jackson became a global icon, selling over 400 million albums, earning thirteen Grammy awards, and spinning dance moves that captivated the world. Songs like Billie Jean and Black and White altered our national discussion of race and equality, and Jacksons signature aesthetic, from the single white glove to the moonwalk, defined a generation. Despite years of scandal and controversy, Jacksons ultimate legacy will always be his music.Rolling Stone contributing editor Steve Knopper delves deeply into Michael Jacksons music and talent.

From the artists early days with the Jackson 5, to his stratospheric success as a solo artist, to Beat It and Thriller, Bad and The Man in the Mirror, to his volatile final years, his attempted comeback, and untimely death, Knopper explores the beguiling and often contradictory forces that fueled Michael Jacksons genius. Drawing on an amazing 400 interviews-ranging from Jacksons relatives, friends, and key record executives to celebrities like will.i.am and Weird Al Yankovic-this critical biography puts all the elements of his career into perspective, and celebrates his triumph in art and music.

This is a rare and panoramic view into the genius and influence of an incomparable talent.
