‘This is the truth as we know it. I have read so much about what people think they know about Michael, but this is about what really happened.’ Jermaine Jackson

You Are Not Alone is an intimate, loving portrait of Michael Jackson, illuminating the private man like never before. It is an invitation into Michael’s real character, private insights and hidden feelings: the innermost thoughts of a fiercely private individual.

Jermaine Jackson knew Michael like only a brother can. In You Are Not Alone Jermaine brings light to the man behind the mask of superstardom, an identity that has lingered in the shadows for too long. You Are Not Alone is a celebration of the real Michael: the boy who shared a tiny bunkbed with Jermaine at 2300 Jackson Street, Gary, Indiana; the brother with whom Jermaine shared laughter, tears and memories; the boy who would grow up to become a legend.

Raw, honest and incredibly moving, You Are Not Alone is also a sophisticated, no-holds-barred examination of Michael Jackson, aimed at fostering a true and final understanding of who he was and what shaped him. This is Michael Jackson--the human, not the legend--through a brother’s eyes.

If you love Michael Jackson, this is the only book you will want to read.

If you think you know the Michael Jackson story, it’s time to think again.

Review:

`Poignant... Convincing... an honest account.' --Telegraph

`Jermaine's love for his brother clearly shines through in his book. His memories are described with great intimacy and detail. I was pleased that it wasn't simply a glossy one-dimensional portrait, but instead wrestles with complexities and tackles all the controversies. The resulting narrative contains moments of triumph and joy as well as some regret, disappointment, sadness and indignation. It feels real. I've read just about everything written on MJ, and You Are Not Alone belongs among the best.' --Joe Vogel, author of Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson

`Anyone can write about their working relationship or their association with Michael, but looking Through a Brother's Eyes broadens the perspective of a compelling and complex individual, publicly celebrating his life and art as a court of law puts together the pieces of his controversial death. Highly Recommended.' --Melody Charles, Soultracks

"One of the reasons I wrote the book was so that my words would stand for themselves, in context," says Jermaine... "one change of context showed how one inaccuracy can snowball and how myths are made. I sat back and thought 'This is what Michael faced all the time'." --Interview with Jermaine Jackson by Charles Thomson, Huffington Post

`[Jermaine argues his case about Michael] with patient conviction.' --Mail on Sunday

`Quite educational, even for a dedicated fan... We finally have a biography of Michael Jackson that isn't distorted by tabloid innuendo and misinformation. Jermaine portrays Michael as a human being... An extraordinary, wonderful one.' --Stephanie H for MJTruthNow

`I picked up the book for the train home... and put it down at 1am. It was the most extraordinary read' --Chris Tarrant, Radio 2
