All That Glitters

New, with thumbing to spine, reflected in price. An intimate portrait of the late pop icon Michael Jackson, by someone who was there to see him through man and boy: his uncle. A superb read. (bio)

this book is so poorly written that even if it is true it's hard to take it seriously. i don't think i have ever read a worse 'non-fiction' book

The story of Michael Jackson and the accusations of the alleged child molestations is a very unique one, unlike any others. A story where truth perhaps becomes too uncomfortble, and even too unbelievable, to some. Many seems to just pre-choose not to believe it, before really looking at the details and the evidence. Which is vast, by the way. Jackson was and still is one of the most beloved artists that ever sat his feet on a stage. And in a sense its so easy to feel sorry for him for all his ha ...more

I suppose what Raymond Chandler is saying is plausible. But personally I don't believe most of anything he's saying. I'm sure the stories have some truth to them. If you've read the book 'The Magic, The Madness, The whole story'' by Randy Taraborrelli some of the stories even sort of make sense. As far as actual molestation goes, I don't believe anything sexual really happened between Michael Jackson and Jordy. I think this book was concocted with Michael's relationship with the kid into somethi ...more

This book was far from well written, but it was still interesting and answered questions that I had about this case such as:
"Why did Evan Chandler initially demand money from Michael Jackson for molesting his son?"
"Why did they press a civil suit against Jackson instead of a criminal trial?"
"Why did they Chandlers agree to the out of court settlement instead of continuing the court case?"

Ray Chandler did have copies of legal documents regarding this case available for purchase on his website. Th

Lots of detailed factual information, from some-one not covered by the gagging order relating to the first Michael Jackson case. Lays out the character traits of pedophiles and explains why the experts believed Jacksons guilt, to be unarguable. It shows how impossible it is even with overwhelming evidence, to go up against powerful people. Foot note, Evan Chandler, who brought the original case, even after disappearing and having plastic surgery, ended up with a bullet through his head, which wa ...more

I think the truth lies somewhere between this book and Michael's side. do I think MJ was inappropriate? yes, do I think the Chandlers were money grubbers? also yes. Chandler plays the victim card well, so did MJ. who knows if we will ever know the truth
So this book was written by the uncle of the molested boy so i found it kinda bias. Having said that I found it an interesting read and Michael Jackson is a proper villain.
