The #1 New York Times bestseller! Michael Jackson’s one and only autobiography – his life, in his words. With original Foreword by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, a new Introduction by Motown founder Berry Gordy, and an Afterword by Michael Jackson’s editor and publisher, Shaye Areheart. “I’ve always wanted to be able to tell stories, you know, stories that came from my soul. I’d like to sit by a fire and tell people stories – make them see pictures, make them cry and laugh, take them anywhere emotionally with something as deceptively simple as words. I’d like to tell tales to move their souls and transform them. I’ve always wanted to be able to do that. Imagine how the great writers must feel, knowing they have that power. I sometimes feel I could do it. It’s something I’d like to develop. In a way, songwriting uses the same skills, creates the emotional highs and lows, but the story is a sketch. It’s quicksilver. There are very few books written on the art of storytelling, how to grip listeners, how to get a group of people together and amuse them. No costumes, no makeup, no nothing, just you and your voice, and your powerful ability to take them anywhere, to transform their lives, if only for minutes.” –Michael Jackson, in Moonwalk From the 1988 edition: Megastar Michael Jackson’s singularly brilliant career and intensely private lifestyle have become a magnificent obsession for millions of rock fans and celebrity watchers throughout the world. His double-platinum singles rocket to the top of the music charts with a velocity equaled only by the inevitable accompaniment of wild rumors about his eccentric personal life. Now for the first time, Michael Jackson breaks the fiercely guarded barrier of silence that has surrounded him in a remarkably candid and courageous book — Moonwalk. In this intimate and often moving personal account of Michael Jackson’s public and private life, he recalls a childhood that was both harsh and joyful but always formidable. Michael and his brothers played amateur music shows and seamy Chicago strip joints until Motown’s corporate image makers turned the Jackson 5 into worldwide superstars. Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5 have combined sales of over 200 million albums. He talks about the happy prankster days of his youth, traveling with his brothers, and of his sometimes difficult relationships with his family over the years. He speaks candidly about the inspiration behind his music, his mesmerizing dance moves, and the compulsive drive to create that has made him one of the biggest stars in the music business and a legend in his own time. The Guinness Book of World Records lists Thriller as the biggest-selling-album of all time. In Moonwalk, Michael Jackson shares his personal feelings about some of his most public friends…friends like Diana Ross, Berry Gordy, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, Fred Astaire, Marlon Brando, and Katharine Hepburn. He talks openly about the crushing isolation of his fame, of his first love, of his plastic surgery, and of his wholly exceptional career and the often bizarre and unfair rumors that have surrounded it. Illustrated with rare photographs from Jackson family albums and Michael’s personal photographic archives, as well as a drawing done by Michael exclusively for this book, Moonwalk is a memorable journey to the very heart and soul of a modern musical genius. From the Hardcover edition.

The second event happened inside the head of a little boy in Bihar, India. He pictured an Indian tricolor on the surface of the moon. Little did he know that his life was about to change forever. Nine-year-old Raghu in Gardhanibagh, Bihar is a curious child. He likes school but he prefers playing around railway tracks.

This is the start of an extraordinary journey through the corridors of IIT, the DRDL and ISRO where he chases his passion, meets and marries his love Aarti, finds a best friend in Vinayak, invents his dream machine and gets caught in a storm of jealousy, deceit and betrayal that threatens the very spirit of his dream. This 45-year long roller coaster of life will transform little Raghu into Dr. Raghav Manohar, a man, a legend. But will he succeed in his mission to put Indians on the moon or will the forces of fate land him somewhere else? Enjoy this gripping tale of passion, love and friendship.

Der Superstar in SEINEN Worten - Michael Jacksons einzige und einzigartige Autobiografie "Ich habe mir immer gewünscht, Geschichten erzählen zu können, Geschichten, die aus meiner Seele kommen. Ich würde am liebsten an einem Feuer sitzen und Geschichten erzählen – meine Zuhörer dazu bringen, Bilder zu sehen, zu weinen und zu lachen, sie gefühlsmäßig irgendwohin zu entführen mit den so täuschend einfach wirkenden Mitteln der Sprache. Keine Kostüme, kein Make-up, nichts, nur du und deine Stimme ..." Michael Jackson in Moonwalk. Am 25. Juni 2009 steht die Welt kurz still. Michael Jackson ist tot. "Moonwalk" nimmt uns noch einmal mit zurück in sein Leben: von den Anfängen der "Jackson Five" bis zu seinen größten Hits als Megastar. Ausführlich erzählt Michael Jackson von den Jahren in seiner Heimatstadt Gary, dem Verhältnis zu seiner Familie und späteren Freunden wie Diana Ross oder Paul McCartney. Erstaunlich offen gewährt er Einblicke in seine Arbeitsweise und spricht erstmals auch über die Schattenseiten seines Erfolges. Über die Angst, zu scheitern, die rufschädigenden Gerüchte und seine fast unerträgliche Einsamkeit. Mit „Moonwalk” offenbart Michael Jackson den Menschen hinter dem Star – und trifft damit mitten ins Herz. Der Mensch hinter dem Megastar – außergewöhnlich offen und sehr berührend.

Moonwalker is a unique story, the memoir of a man whose love of Scotland's mountains would override his body-clock and all conventional notions of health and safety. When Alan Rowan finished his shifts as a sub-editor at a national newspaper at midnight, he knew he was too jacked up on deadline adrenaline to attempt sleep. At the same time, he was starting to worry if he would ever complete his ambition to reach the summit of every Munro in Scotland those peaks of over 3000ft. One crazy night, he decided upon a single solution to both problems. He would begin his ascents in the middle of the night, see the sun rise above the clouds and then come down the mountain just as everyone else was going up. We see Alan's transformation from desk jockey to midnight mountaineer, meet dodgy car salesmen, rabid sheepdogs, charging deer, superstitious Germans and crooked confectioners - all the while seeing the best of Scotland in a unique light. Moonwalker is funny and touching; at once a deeply personal memoir and a riotous travelogue.
