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!

    " 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. "

    " 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 by 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. "

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