    This Book Is Really Good

    I have both the paperback and Kobo editions of this book, and I must say that it is good. Really good. Granted, as an autobiography, it's a little bit outdated, having been written somewhere after the Portrait of an American Family/Smells Like Children albums and the Antichrist Superstar album (more towards Antichrist, I would say). Since then, Manson has released a number of fantastic albums (Mechanical Animals, Holy Wood [In The Shadow of the Valley of Death], The Golden Age of Grotesque, Eat Me Drink Me, The High End of Low, Born Villain, and 2015's The Pale Emperor which was released on January 20th). This was written during Manson's primarily shock-centred act, so this book is quite crude and has a lot of stuff in it designed - as only Manson would dare to do - to shock and outrage any parents or Christians who would happen to get their hands on that book. It's a very candid look at the difficult life of a man named Brian Warner, and it gives a little bit of insight to the mysterious trilogy of albums that he had been working on at that time (Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals and Holy Wood [In The Valley of the Shadow of Death], although not necessarily in that order). He spares no details as he shares the good, the bad and the ugly of his life. It is not for the faint of heart! It would be given an "R" rating if books were given ratings, but it is oh so worth it, especially if you're already a fan!

    Worth the read

    Surprising good book. Not a fan of MM in general, but much enjoyed reading the book. Well written. A little redundant at times, but appreciated his honestly. Worth the read.

    Entertaining page turner

    Marilyn Manson is not only the most controversial rock star of our time, he is actually smarter than you think and he most definitely knows how to tell a story. From the early days of The Spooky Kids to their most infamous album Antichrist Superstar, from the various hook ups he had with different girls to his obsession with Fiona Apple, this autobiography shows you a more personal side of Manson. But it's not for the fainthearted and close minded bigots because it's filled with filthy jokes, blasphemous statements and shocking truths. You either love him as a modern day antihero or hate him for his shocking antics. There is no such thing as in between in Marilyn Manson's dictionary.

    Interesting

    Although I don't agree with every point if view Manson has, it was very interesting and sometimes funny to look at life through his eyes. I was intrigued at the level of outrage his band endured. I know he is shrouded in controversy, however didn't realize the lengths people would go to, to prevent freedom of speech if they didn't agree with it. Makes you kidding d if hate the general public. However I am sure a part of me already did. Worth the time.

    Yowza!

    I, like many others when first picking up this book, was intrigued, perplexed, terrified, interested and confused about Marilyn Manson. Who is he as a person? What drives him? What's it like to be part of his inner circle? Now after reading this I understand the man a little more than I did once before. I'm not saying I agree with most of his antics or M.O but I understand where he's coming from and why he does what he does. I found that I have some of the same ideologies and values as he does. He's a brilliant storyteller and deep down (if you look past the makeup and past the theatrics) he's just like the rest of us. It seems that all he wants to do is be accepted and to make a change in the world.
