What could turn an otherwise sane, mature woman residing in a small, sleepy, rural Midwestern farming community into an avid follower of a moonwalking, crotch-grabbing, whirling dervish of a Rock ‘n Roll pop star? It would take a major, cataclysmic event. It would take a reality-tilting, orbit-shifting eight-minute-song. It would take nothing short of Michael Jackson. How can one man change the world? How can his impact be felt in the fields of music, film, dance, performance, current events, politics, social commentary and humanitarian outreach? How can one man bring all generations, creeds, nationalities, denominations, and ethnic origins together to celebrate unity, life and, at the same time, benefit the human race in so many public and private ways? Again, such an infiltration of our cultural narrative would take nothing short of Michael Jackson. This book details a two-decade-long relationship which, to this author’s great joy, continues to this day.

Jun 12, 2015As I was finishing up the second edition of my book, I was reading all the submissions in it, from fellow Disciples and Soldiers of Love...Jan Carlson being one of them. Her story/testamony of love for our Sweet Michael is lovely. After reading it, I picked up my book "Conversations," which I had read some time ago. The print is small, and my eyes are bad...so I've had to read it in waves, giving my eyes a rest. So, there was much in the book I needed refreshed. I'm so glad I did! Jan speaks from so deep in her heart...Rather, I should say that she LISTENS from so deep in her heart! She hears Michael's beautiful words, and they travel through her, to us, so sweetly. This book lets you feel like you are sitting around a table, having coffee, tea...or a glass of wine...deep in conversation with good friends. I'm grateful to her for sharing these private moments with all of us! I came to lulubooks to update my review...and sadly saw that I had never left one. I was sure I had.... More > Perhaps I left one at another place. I sometimes get lost on the web! Nevertheless, I love this book, and I hope many people have had the opportunity to experience it. peace, light & MichaeL~O~V~E, Elizabeth Michelle Billeaudeaux author of: "An Angel Among Us: We Called Him Michael Jackson...A Spiritual Journey" and "Michael in My Life" www.michaeljacksonsoulwarrior.com< Less
Oct 10, 2012Jan Cooper-Carlson's book is wonderful! She has disclosed to the reader her inner life, spiritual journey, and deepest feelings. It is a brave, spirited, and inspirational work. The author presents Michael Jackson in a way that is a tribute to the man and to his legacy. Her presentation of facts and opinions about Michael are intertwined with her imaginings and fantasy conversations with him. This book is different from the many others that I have read about Michael Jackson, and that includes dozens of biographies and autobiographies [by his family members & friends]. The author's passion and insight are revealed throughout the book. Thanks to Jan for portraying Michael Jackson in such a special, unique way.

Sep 1, 2012Michael Jackson has inspired so many to follow their dreams, and this book is another example of how his message and legacy will be carried to future generations. Full of hope, compassion, love and inspiration, Conversations shows us another way of being in the world. It is the way Michael Jackson showed us to be during his life, and now through the writing of Jan Carlson, the wisdom of his experience and love can be felt and followed into the future. The truth and love of these writings shine through every word and are a blessing to those who read them.
Aug 17, 2012This book, in my opinion, does great honor to the legacy of Michael Jackson. Absolutely beautifully written and filled with messages of Love, peace, unity, spirituality, forgiveness, and humanity... all principles that Michael both demonstrated in his life, and inspired others to incorporate into their own. The authors 20 year history as a fan has given her a wonderful foundation of knowledge of the events of Michael's life, and her great Love for him allows the reader to see him through a sympathetic eye - a stark contrast from the mainstream media slant that most are exposed to. This book is clearly written for one purpose, and one purpose only... to share the truth of a gentle, giving, compassionate, selfless, and so very painfully misunderstood human being. Open your heart and prepare to meet the real Michael Jackson. It's all for L.O.V.E.
Aug 17, 2012I am loving Conversations, I laugh, I cry and I also have my many questions answered. Michael continues to inspire through this book and his love for all mankind shines through, what better "push" do we need than to continue Michael's work and that we do it with the L.O.V.E that he so truly believed in. I would like to address TJ Jackson with respect and love in my heart, we are all of course entitled to our opinions and have the right to voice them. I do feel however, probably out of deep respect and love for Michael that you are judging the author rather harshly, Michael himself taught us never to judge anyone unless we had spoken to them and this is something I carry out every time something or someone upsets me. I understand how some parts of the book you may feel aren't right from your point of view but what this book has done for many is given them the opportunity to have our own Conversations with Michael, there are so many messages in there, spiritual, about... More > forgiveness, about being the best that you can be no matter how much practice you put into it. I would dearly have loved to sat down with Michael and talked to him about these things, this book, no matter where the Conversations came from give me that opportunity, I more often than not hear Michael's voice speaking his words and this helps me to be the best I can be, to reach out and make my dreams come true. Michael is and was my role-model for many things that have happened in my life, this book gives me even more power if you like to be "more like Mike" so that I can go out there and help to make his mission happen. I wish all readers of this review love and peace< Less
