This is the book that serious Michael Jackson fans crave--one that forgoes sensationalism in favor of an insightful look at Jackson's work and creative process. Man in the Music meticulously tracks Jackson's solo career--from 1979's groundbreaking Off the Wall to 2001's Invincible to his yet-to-be-released material. Vogel analyzes every song and album, placing the music in its social, historical, cultural, and even personal context. The result is an in-depth assessment of one of the most compelling, influential artists in popular music history.

Essential Book for Any Music Fan
Five-star ratings are thrown around a lot by critics and fans alike. I tend to hold my judgment until I'm sure that whatever I'm reading is worthy of that rating. When it comes to Joseph Vogel's MAN IN THE MUSIC, I honestly can't give this book anything less than five stars; he gives an objective look at each of Michael's adult solo albums and the impact it had before and after its release. If you're a newbie MJ fan or a longtime enthusiast, this is an essential book for any music fan.
