“I'll always be Peter Pan in my heart,” Michael Jackson once said. And like the character he loved, Jackson seemed eternally childlike and charismatic. Not even death has eroded his popularity: he still remains one of the world's highest-earning celebrities. This lavishly illustrated and definitive biography has now been revised and updated to explore new areas of Jackson's music, legacy, and personality. Filled with performance, backstage, and family photos—including ten newly added pictures—Michael Jackson captures the entertainer's enduring appeal . . . and clearly reveals why he was the true King of Pop.
