Good Morning America, the US most popular morning show have played host to three of Michael’s former security guards, who are planning a book on Michael’s private life, as they saw it.
Among the subjects discussed was a section on Michael’s love of books, and his many visits to book stores. They saw him buy thousands of dollars worth of books on every visit and even had to rent a self drive truck, a U-Haul, to get his purchases home. When asked what sort of books he liked, they mentioned history and science fiction in particular, saying that they themselves learned something new from Michael every day. He was “very big on knowledge,” they said and encouraged his children to read. They loved books too and were intelligent beyond their years.
