Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days by Bill Whitfield, Javon Beard, Tanner Colby Review

*I received a free copy of this book*



Hounded by the tabloid media, driven from his self-made sanctuary at Neverland, Michael Jackson spent his final years moving from city to city, living with his three children in virtual seclusion—a futile attempt to escape a world that wouldn’t leave him alone. During that time, two men served as the singer’s personal security team: Bill Whitfield, a former cop and veteran of the security profession, and Javon Beard, a brash, untested rookie, both single fathers themselves.

Stationed at his side nearly 24/7, their job was to see and hear everything that transpired, and to keep everyone else out, making them the only two men who know what 60 million fans around the world still want to know: What really happened to the King of Pop?

Driven by a desire to show the world who Michael Jackson truly was, Whitfield and Beard have produced the only definitive, first-person account of Michael Jackson’s last years: the extreme measures necessary to protect Jackson and his family, the simple moments of happiness they managed to share in a time of great stress, the special relationship Jackson shared with his fans, and the tragic events that culminated in the singer’s ill-fated comeback, This Is It. The truth is far more compelling than anything you’ve yet heard.

An indispensable piece of pop-culture history, Remember the Time is the story of a man struggling to live a normal life under extraordinary circumstances, the story of a father fighting to protect and provide for his children. Remember the Time is the book that dismantles the tabloid myths once and for all to give Michael Jackson back his humanity.


MY THOUGHTS

 I don't usually read non-fiction but I thought this would be interesting. Not sure if any of what is said in the book were true because I never really followed the news about Michael Jackson before or after his death so I can't tell you if what is told in the book is true or not.  

It took me over a week to read this book. Not because it isn't well written but because I don't usually like reading non-fiction and I just had a hard time reading it because I was bored with it.  I know some of you might like non-fiction so I figured maybe some of you might like this book.  

Anyway, I not going to bother rating this because I just couldn't finish it. 

If you want to purchase  this book you can do so at amazon.com, Book Depository or any other online book stores or at a book store near you.
