Jermaine Jackson—older than Michael by four years—offers a keenly observed memoir tracing his brother’s life starting from their shared childhood and extending through the Jackson 5 years, Michael’s phenomenal solo career, his loves, his suffering, and his tragic end. It is a sophisticated, no-holds-barred examination of the man, aimed at fostering a true and final understanding of who he was, why he was, and what shaped him.

Jermaine knows the real Michael as only a brother can. In this raw, honest, and poignant account, he reveals Michael the private person, not Michael “the King of Pop.”

Jermaine doesn’t flinch from tackling the tough issues: the torrid press, the scandals, the allegations, the court cases, the internal politics, the ill-fated This Is It tour, and disturbing developments in the days leading up to Michael’s death. But where previous works have presented only thin versions of a media construct, he provides a rare glimpse into the complex heart, mind, and soul of a brilliant but sometimes troubled entertainer. As a witness to history on the inside, Jermaine is the only person qualified to deliver the real Michael and reveal what made him tick, his private opinions, and unseen emotions through the most headline-making episodes of his life.

Filled with keen insight, rich in anecdotes and behind-the-scenes detail, You Are Not Alone is the book for any true Michael Jackson fan and for anyone trying to make sense of the artist whose death was so premature. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " If anyone really wanted a glimpse inside the world of children and fame, this book would be it. Jermaine takes you through the triumphs and tribulations in the life of his brother, The King Of Pop, Michael Jackson. It made me laugh and cry. It's just so raw and very much worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine Reside | 4/2/2013

    " I loved this book. Written by his brother, Jermaine; it was refreshing to get a look at the "real" Michael; the most misunderstood man who ever lived. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 3/20/2013

    " Found this book to be more about Jermaine than Michael's life. Some insight into the life of his brother but not as much as I would have liked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay Wood | 11/23/2012

    " All in all pretty good. Makes you think about his life and how the last few years unfolded. "

    " I enjoyed reading this book. Sometimes I questioned the validity of what I was read but, overall, I appreciated receiving Jermaine's perspective regarding his brother Michael's life and career. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie Star | 5/6/2012

    " It is a really good bookl it made Michael seem like a normal person instead of the big superstar we all see him as! Jermaine wrote this book for his brother out of love, not money. If you are a big MJ fan than this book is for you. Warning the ending is very sad. I cried. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 2/29/2012

    " I found this quite a hard biography to read. His brother wrote the story of their childhood up to the memorial service and the investigation into his death. It tells how close he came to losing his entire fortune. "

    " It was really well written and very interesting. I feel I understand what he was like better now. "
