One would think that a book titled "On Michael Jackson" would attempt some kind of objectivity in writing about such a controversial mega-star. Unfortunately, the author says everything we have already heard: he is a freak, he is odd, he is asexual, etc. What disturbed me most was the voice, which was very "matter-of-fact" when it is clear that nobody really knows all of the facts of Jackson's life. I wanted more, so much more, and it just wasn't there. There were a few strong points regarding Jackson's apparent desire to transcend race, while defying masculinity "norms."
