The Jackson family, between them, have scored over 200 hits since November 1969, when the Jackson 5's I Want You Back entered Billboard's Hot 100 and Hot R&B singles charts in the States. I Want You Back went on to become the first Jackson no.1 - the first of 50 (and counting!). It is these chart toppers that form the A-Z backbone of this book - 20 by Janet, 20 by Michael, seven by the Jackson 5, two by Jermaine and one by the Jacksons, plus a further seven with a Jackson connection. The book also features a comprehensive Fact File section, including: Top 100 Jackson singles, Chartography (USA & UK), the Jacksons in the USA, and the Jacksons in the UK and around the world.
