Pressestimmen

"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

"Zack Greenburg's well-researched book is a compelling read and one of the most incisive looks at the business of show business at its highest level."--Fab 5 Freddy

"We all know Michael Jackson worked hard to become the undisputed King of Pop. Zack Greenburg's well researched "Michael Jackson, Inc. "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

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As Zack Greenburg walks his reader through the maze of Michael Jackson's financial life, he demonstrates how the thread that ran through all of the phenomenal, record-breaking successes of the King of Pop was the man himself.

As in most things Michael Jackson, the media have typically provided over-the-top and misleading coverage of MJ's business dealings, overlooking his entrepreneurial prowess, visionary acumen, and genius. Zack reveals the surprising inside stories of MJ's acquisition of the largest music catalog in history, of his fantastical 2700-acre Neverland that reflected his core personality, and of the stratospheric earning power of the King of Pop. He also interprets the downfall of MJ and of his financial status in a thorough, credible, and interesting way, in parts difficult to read because of the pathos and victimhood in the story.

Although the public was fed negatively skewed material about MJ's finances across the years, Zack shows how the lens and yardstick with which MJ was perceived and measured were generally inaccurate and distorted. He presents the reader with a fascinating case study of the King of Entrepreneurship, who set the bar in so many areas for other artists to follow his lead. He was a game changer, whose soft voice and steel will combined to effect new ways of marketing music and monetizing celebrity. MJ studied the greats - in music, dance, and finance - and then became greater, a goal that he set for himself as a very young man.

MJ was indeed a trail-blazer in everything he did - dance, music, film, life-style, philanthropy - with risk-taking decision-making, out-of-the-box thinking, driving ambition, and a level of perfectionism that fueled his bigger-and-better obsession.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jackson Disrupts Yet Another Industry 9. Juni 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is the story of how Michael Jackson pioneered a new template for "pop star as brand and business owner." Greenburg details Jackson's vision of himself as a new kind of entertainer: not selling rights to his songs, acquiring other copyrights, leveraging his popularity to start shoe & clothing lines. It's a concept that didn't exist before Jackson; he broke new ground in this area just as he revolutionized the music video, dance, and so many other things.

It is also a cautionary tale about the unanticipated effects of corporate mergers & acquisitions - in this case, Jackson, ended up owning half of the Sony/ATV music catalog (worth billions) but also having a separate relationship with Sony as a recording artist (when his label, CBS/Epic, was eventually acquired by Sony). This dual relationship of being co-owner and contractor seems to me to be at the root of the disputes and frustrations that soured a previously good business arrangement between Jackson & Sony. He had several albums still to deliver under his recording contract, but when he became unhappy with them, couldn't afford to legally dispute and/or walk away, because the rest of his fortune was too attached to the same company.

The book is well written and well-documented with numerous interviews and little reliance on third party reports. What it doesn't do is explain the 'why" of some of Jackson's later decisions. There are several clues, however. For example, at one point after Jackson's acquittal & return to the Unites States, he strongly considered selling his stake in the Sony/ATV catalog in order to liquidate and pay off debts. But he was advised not to do so.

From a financial/business standpoint that was probably good advice, but I doubt that it was the right advice (on a personal level) for someone who had just been through the most devastating personal wringer. Going back to work was the solution Jackson chose (rather than sell) and we know how that worked out. It makes you wish someone would have said, 'you've been working since you were six. It's OK to cash in and just enjoy.' Unfortunately, Michael been trained that 'the show must go on.'

5.0 von 5 Sternen Michael Jackson was more than a Musical Genius 9. September 2016
Von MJJ Fan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
For those interested in Michael Jackson's business acumen should read this book. Zack O'Malley Greenburg has written a great Jackson biography. The book doesn't engage in cheap sensationalism. For those who only know Jackson for his innate musical genius, will find Jackson was remarkable in business in the 1980s and not so much in later years but rebounded in astounding ways. This book is a great read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incredible 5. Juni 2014
Von Zachary H. Bissonnette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a fantastically well-executed look at the financial life of Michael Jackson: the mismanagement and neglect before and after his death but also, and surprisingly more interestingly, the vision that he brought to his business during his career.

There are few angles of the Michael Jackson story that have been left unexplored. This was one of them, and this book looks at it spectacularly.

Every Michael Jackson fan should read it but actually, it will probably be as interesting or more interesting to general business readers who can only name one or two Michael Jackson songs.

This is great book that explores the business savvy of one of the greatest entertainers of all time- Michael Jackson. I've been in contact with this author, and he knows his stuff. I'm so happy that he has brought forth just one more aspect of Jackson's genius; this time in the boardroom.

Von KE - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Well researched, written, and organized - most of these books about entertainment figures seem to rehash available info from questionable sources, but this is a fresh take. There were a few areas where there was clearly more to the story and for whatever reason it was excluded, but overall I thought it was very accurate, well-written, and entertaining.
