Críticas:

"A fascinating, fresh, detailed account of how Michael Jackson changed the game for artists in the entertainment industry. Packed with new angles and insights, Greenburg avoids cheap sensationalism in favor of real, research-based reporting. The result is at once a story of Jackson's remarkable business acumen, as well as a cautionary tale about the price of the ticket. While Jackson's success came at a great cost, reading this book makes clear how he paved the way for generations of artists to come."--Joseph Vogel, author of Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson

"Jackson was crazy like a fox, and could be as cold in business as he was hot onstage and in the studio. I'm crazy for this gripping, beautifully-reported book."--Michael Gross, author of House of Outrageous Fortune

"The King of Pop is perfectly captured by Zack O'Malley Greenburg, who has a journalist's eye for detail with "Michael Jackson, Inc." The words dance across the page, the mark of a writer with vivid, natural storytelling talent. Bravo, Zack!"--Chuck Leavell, keyboardist for the Rolling Stones

"What a story Zack Greenburg tells well, one that is as absorbing and exciting as Michael Jackson on stage in his prime. It's a modern, pop version of Citizen Kane."--Steve Forbes

"We know the circus that Michael Jackson's personal life became in the media, yet Zack found the stories of who he became in the business world, which was starkly different and industry influencing. Jackson went hard in the vocal booth and even harder in the boardroom. Artist-entrepreneurs like Jay Z, Diddy and Lady Gaga owe him the world; we're indebted to Zack for shedding light on Jackson's business acumen."--Datwon Thomas, contributing editor at Ozy.com

"follows the money and shows us how he learned from the best, defied the odds, and turns out to have been just as good at business--making this a fun, compelling read and one of the most incisive looks at the business of show business at its highest level."--Fab 5 Freddy, hip-hop pioneer and longtime host of Yo! MTV Raps

"Greenburg explores the brilliance and business acumen of Michael Jackson. He intricately carves the truth behind the man who went from rags to revolutionizing--and paving the way for artists to ultimately become business moguls."--David Banner, Grammy-winning musician, actor and entrepreneur

"In his meticulously researched "Michael Jackson, Inc," Zack O'Malley Greenburg has brilliantly shown us a side of the late King of Pop we've never seen before: The mercurial but oh-so-canny businessman who made hundreds of millions in his lifetime and is on his way to making even more after his untimely death."--William D. Cohan, New York Times bestselling author of Money and Power and The Price of Silence

What a story Zack Greenburg tells well, one that is as absorbing and exciting as Michael Jackson on stage in his prime. It s a modern, pop version of Citizen Kane. --Steve Forbes"

Reseña del editor:

The surprising rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-riches story of how Michael Jackson grew a billion-dollar business.

Michael Jackson is known by many as the greatest entertainer of all time, but he was also a revolutionary when it came to business. In addition to famously buying the Beatles publishing catalogue, Jackson was one of the first pop stars to launch his own clothing line, record label, sneakers, and video games creating a fundamental shift in the monetization of fame and paving the way for entertainer-entrepreneurs like Jay Z and Diddy. All told, Jackson earned more than $1.1 billion in his solo career, and the assets he built in life have earned more than $700 million in the five years since his death more than any other solo music act over that time.

Michael Jackson, Inc. reveals the incredible rise, fall, and rise again of Michael Jackson s fortune driven by the unmatched perfectionism of the King of Pop.Forbes senior editor Zack O Malley Greenburg uncovers never-before-told stories from interviews with more than 100 people, including music industry veterans Berry Gordy, John Branca, and Walter Yetnikoff; artists 50 Cent, Sheryl Crow, and Jon Bon Jovi; and members of the Jackson family. Other insights come from court documents and Jackson s private notes, some of them previously unpublished. Through Greenburg s novelistic telling, a clear picture emerges of Jackson s early years, his rise to international superstardom, his decline fueled by demons internal and external, as well as the dissolution of the team that helped him execute his best business moves and, finally, his financial life after death.

Underlying Jackson s unique history is the complex but universal tale of the effects of wealth and fame on the human psyche. A valuable case study for generations of entertainers to come and for anyone interested in show business,Michael Jackson, Inc. tells the story of a man whose financial feats, once obscured by his late-life travails, have become an enduring legacy.
