It’s Time to Restore Michael Jackson’s Legacy to Its Rightful Place!

It’s Time to Restore Michael Jackson’s Legacy to Its Rightful Place! 

The Newly Released Book, Defending a King~His Life & Legacy, Does

Just That.

 

 If you want an eye-opening portrayal of the real Michael Jackson—delivered in a rare

blend of disclosure, respect, insight, and passion—this is it!

       – Thomas A. Mesereau, Jr.

 

Ponte Vedra Beach, FL – Dec 16, 2011 – Veteran author Dr. Karen Moriarty announced

today the release of Defending a King~His Life & Legacy (by Infinity Publishing).

Understanding that “bizarre behavior is normal in bizarre circumstances,” Dr. Moriarty

leads readers carefully through the maze of stunningly bizarre events and circumstances

of Michael Jackson’s life.  With previously unknown revelations, the King of Pop is

disclosed as a complex and vulnerable man who lived—and struggled–at the pinnacle of

human existence.

 

In the wake of the disturbing manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, in which the

defense and often the media sordidly tried to put Michael–the victim of the crime–on

trial, Dr. Moriarty helps readers understand the unique struggles of this inspirational

genius and worldwide humanitarian.  [This is the first published book that covers the

Conrad Murray trial, including the sentencing hearing on November 29, 2011.]

 

Dr. Moriarty’s portrayal of the man includes explanations of why Michael was not a

recluse, why he became nomadic after his 2005 criminal trial, why he veiled his children

in public, and why he always kept millions of dollars in cash within arm’s reach.  The

author affirms that Michael was heterosexual and that he struggled for decades with

insomnia.  Incorporating more than 200 sources, including accounts from a variety of

people who knew Michael intimately, Dr. Moriarty reveals also where he went and what

he did during those last four mysterious years of his life.

 

 Defending a King~His Life & Legacy addresses the three biggest mistakes Michael

made in his life: one that was only a temporary fix; one that more than anything else

proved his child-like level of trust; and the one that caused his tragic demise.  From the

perspective and empathy of a psychologist, Dr. Moriarty not only proposes plausible

explanations for some of the seemingly absurd elements of the mega-star’s private life,

but she also presents fully some of its truly unparalleled circumstances, which will strain

the imaginations of even those fans who “knew” him best.

 

Michael Jackson was the King of Pop.  He was also the King of Controversy.  But

mostly, as this book reveals, he was the King of Hearts.  Not only in his humanitarian

acts—he donated more than $300 million to charities—but in his private acts of kindness

that few people know about, he was a man whose global legacy of goodness may

ultimately outshine his reputation for greatness.
