Before You Judge Me
[the Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson's Last Days]Audiobook CD - 2016
Powerful chronicle of the sixteen weeks leading up to King of Pop Michael Jackson's death. Michael Jackson's final months were like the rest of his short and legendary life, filled with deep lows and soaring highs, a constant hunt for privacy, and the pressure and fame that made him socially fragile and almost, ultimately, unable to live. With the insight and compassion that he brought to his bestselling telling of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s final year, Tavis Smiley provides a glimpse into the superstar's life in this emotional, honest, yet celebratory book. Readers will witness Jackson's campaign to recharge his career, hiring and firing managers and advisors, turning to and away from family members, fighting depression and drug dependency, while his one goal remained, to mount the most spectacular series of shows the world had ever seen.
