Making Michael delves deep inside the career of one of the most successful, enigmatic and controversial entertainers of all time: Michael Jackson. Side-stepping sensationalism, journalist Mike Smallcombe enters uncharted territory as he takes you behind the scenes to reveal the real Jackson, a man few people ever got to know. Interviewing over sixty of Jackson's associates including managers, lawyers, music executives, producers, musicians and engineers - many of whom are speaking about their experiences publicly for the first time - he provides exclusive access to one of the biggest-selling recording artists in history. Featuring a foreword by Matt Forger, one of Jackson's longest serving and most loyal collaborators, Making Michael takes readers into the studio with the King of Pop, charting the creation of record-breaking albums including Thriller, Bad, Dangerous and HIStory and the twists and turns that occurred along the way. Untold stories, revelations and secrets finally see the light of day as Jackson's career outside the studio is also examined. Smallcombe remains objective and doesn't shy away from exploring the fall outs, Jackson's relentless pursuit of perfectionism and a cutthroat shrewdness and competitiveness few knew existed. "Explosive.. extraordinary" - Sunday Express "Revelatory" - The Daily Mirror "A fascinating book that I could not put down. It's fast, furious and truly compelling, If Michael were alive I am sure he would have been very proud of Mike Smallcombe's book. This truly is it, a must read" - Kathryn Milofsky, Exec Producer Brian Oxman Show
