Review of Dr.Karen Moriarty's book Defending a king-His Life & Legacy.

This is a book that I highly recommend for any Michael Jackson fan. It is a good and positive book as defend Michael Jackson in the trial in 2005, she has used sources from Michaels 3 bodygard's, and Tom Mesereau. It is also about all the good things Michael did for charity, and how kind and loving father he was. The book is of particular parts of these last difficult years of Michael's life, and of all the accusations he has had to live with.
For all Michael Jackson-loving fans who want to know a little more about Michael's hard life in public, I would really like to recommend this positive book.
The author has written a good and positive book about the difficult life of one legend like Michael Jackson lived.
However I thought the book lacks some pictures .. so it would be absolutely fantastic.
I give 5 stars from Denmark.

Being Michael Jackson's fan for 20 years, I'm always careful about books written by people who did not know Michael in person. Fortunately, this book turned out to be excellent, and the author is just as careful and tactful in choosing the right words and subjects to talk about Michael. It is truly written with respect, admiration and love for the man and the entertainer. There are joyful stories, and sad stories, and some serious situations described in it, as well as an attempt to explain to the world what kind of person Michael is and how he came to be this way. A great father, a good boss, a polite conversation partner and a one-of-a-kind entertainer who never ceased refining his art and skills and whose influence has been felt everywhere. Lonely at times, living in extreme stress and pain, but still finding the time to talk to his fans. Karen Moriarty has done a profound research, and so the book includes not only her personal opinion, but also opinions of those who knew Michael very well and who stayed close to him. A great book for any MJ fan. The only thing I can add is to agree with the author: Michael's music is therapy to everyone who feels broken

Format: Paperback
I grew up with Michael (as a contemporary) in my world, and I have read many things about him. Most of them were untrue, and I couldn't understand how the adorable, little, doe-eyed boy with the voice of an angel could come to be so hated by the world? How could they accuse him of such horrible things when he did so many wonderful things for people around the world, mostly children.

When he was murdered, my heart, and my world stood still! How could such a man survive in a world of such hatred? Why was he persecuted, so hated, when all he wanted was to "Heal The World". I began reading, researching, devouring everything I could find, but 99% of it was the same old hatred-filled tabloid garbage that is still being recycled and split out verbatim four years after his death!

Karen Moriarty has written a wonderfully insightful, and sensitive book about not just Michael Jackson the entertainer, but about Michael Jackson the human being! It was a revelation to read something positive about this man who only wanted to do good in this world and be loved in return, for who he was inside!

Michael, We love YOU MORE, forever and always! "Lies run sprints. The TRUTH runs marathons." Michael Jackson

May HIS truth NEVER be silenced!!

When I started to read this book, I was entranced by the almost poetic writing style of Dr. Karen Moriarty.
The book is thematically well jointed, it opens a new perception about Michael Jackson and is very well investigated with provable facts. It is written warmheated and deferentially.
An absolutely MUST for all MJ-fans! They will love it!
But this work should be read also by the non-fans, because it opens an unique possibility to get to know who was the "real Michael Jackson". Finally the prejudices, defamation and lies about this unique awesome person has to stop! Michael Jackson was surely the biggest entertainer and humanist on earth. It is unbelievable, how badly he was treated. He gave everything to the world what a person can give: He created unforgettable compositions and music, he defined the dance style for all next generations, he helped the poor and he loved the children.
Karen Moriarty describes all these facts in her book. She takes up exactly this topic. It is a very intelligent, sensitive and literary work. This book should be translated into other languages!

(My dear friend Myrna Ramos asked that I post this on her behalf.)

This is just the book I was looking for!

People say so many incorrect things about Michael Jackson - and most of them are not true. But it happens because of the yellow media and the tabloids that repeatedly lie and for such a long time and it is becoming the "copy and paste" truth.
Dr. Karen Moriarty's Defending a King, His Life and Legacy has created for us a master piece. We can finally breathe a sign of relief and be in peace with this beautiful tribute to our king!

Dr. Moriarty reveals many special and unknown stories that we can now treasure, and she does it with the support of a long-time investigation. Michael`s human side and his artistic and humanitarian legacy are treated with so much love, respect and care.

I am deeply delighted with this extraordinary life. In the pages of this book I can find who Michael Jackson was, IS and will be as the best entertainer, musician, dancer, singer, composer of all times and, of course, the best "daddy" in the whole world.

That's why this is the book I was looking for. Now it is resting in my hands and blessing my heart.

To Dr. Karen Moriarty:

Thank you so much, Karen, for this amazing and humble gem that you share with all the people who sincerely want to know about the man that gave us so much with the only desire to make us happy. Dr. Moriarty, you are definitely a singular, generous and beautiful woman.

God bless you and Michael and God bless Robert.

L.O.V.E.
