Rock's strangest icon yet

Marilyn Manson is not a household name, at least not in a positive spin. Also known as Brian Warner, Manson's made his fame by being one of the most outlandish, out-there faces in rock. This book, his autobiography, brings you a little more insight into his personal life and personal hell. Behind the make up, music, and glam life Manson now leads, there are plenty of stories to hear about along the way. The book has its’ fair share of gore, but who wouldn't expect that knowing who he is. It explains his childhood and what drove him to be who he is today. It follows him through his relationships, success, marriage, ridicule, and everything you can imagine(literally, even though you might not want to) in between. It gives insight on his personal interactions with some of the rock genre’s other important stars as well. I think this is a must read for any Manson fan- it sheds some light on more than the general public sees, but if you don't like Marilyn Manson in the first place, you probably won't like the book any more. I would not recommend it for anyone under the age of 14, or who is highly impressionable.

      The reason why this book seems so unconvincing is that Neil Strauss Legendary Pickup guru guided and edited throughout his biography. I am sure that improved on the books charming nature but really I dont think everything in the book happened the way it did. Its obvious that everyone in his life that he has no use for anymore he makes look very bad in the book.      This book gives alot of the wow factor! I am always at the edge of my seat  learning …
