Remember The Time #Giveaway

Remember The Time by Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard

About The Book:
Hounded by the tabloid media, driven from his self-made sanctuary at Neverland, Michael Jackson spent his final years moving from city to city, living with his three children in virtual seclusion - a futile attempt to escape a world that wouldn’t leave him alone. During that time, two men served as the singer’s personal security team: Bill Whitfield, a former cop and veteran of the security profession, and Javon Beard, a brash, untested rookie, both single fathers themselves. Stationed at his side nearly 24/7, their job was to see and hear everything that transpired, and to keep everyone else out, making them the only two men who know what 60 million fans around the world still want to know: What really happened to the King of Pop? Driven by a desire to show the world who Michael Jackson truly was, Whitfield and Beard have produced the only definitive, first-person account of Michael Jackson’s last years: the extreme measures necessary to protect Jackson and his family, the simple moments of happiness they managed to share in a time of great stress, the special relationship Jackson shared with his fans, and the tragic events that culminated in the singer’s ill-fated comeback, This Is It. The truth is far more compelling than anything you’ve yet heard. An indispensable piece of pop-culture history, Remember the Time is the story of a man struggling to live a normal life under extraordinary circumstances, the story of a father fighting to protect and provide for his children. Remember the Time is the book that dismantles the tabloid myths once and for all to give Michael Jackson back his humanity.

My Thoughts:
I, like a lot of others, am very intrigued by Michael Jackson and all the mystery surrounding his death. This book is a great account of the reality, and what the real MJ was like. It was a very quick read for me, as I was so interested in the story.

  3. Ok, don't laugh but this makes me cry. I think I'm possibly the biggest MJ fan in the whole world. I miss him so much. He was my era...I'm a 52 year old woman that can still sing all his tunes and when I hear that voice I'm up and dancing. My daughters love him because of this and now I've got two little grandsons in my arms dancing to MJ. Trust me, not good music, fantastic, great, fabulous....etc... music and talent. I don't even bother to think of the other things said. I just love my MJ!!! Forever!!! Ok, this is now a saga but I would love to win. He had such a sad, interesting, and at times happy life.
