This book, although a great auto-biograpghy by a very interesting and talented musician, if purchased for individual values, is very vulgar and it is not an appropriate book for a public library accessible by children. I expressed my concerns to the library staff, being a parent of young children (but a rock musician also) but they did nothing.

This is one of the best books ever. I enjoyed every word & every picture I could see in my mind when imagining his personal experiences. Manson is such a creative and intelligent individual that he just put a huge cell of himself into my blood and heart after reading it. Thank you Marilyn Manson for your existence.

Great read from start to finish. Keeps you wanting more all the way up to the conclusion. Mixes humor with philosophy and twisted horror. I finished this in a day. I would highly recommend for anyone. There's something to be learned and something for everybody. It helps you understand why Marilyn Manson is the way he is and does the things he does.

A very interesting read. I gained more respect for Manson. I Strangely couldn't put down the book. Personally, I was addicted to this book, I read it every night, before I went to bed, in the summer, it was definitely a cool read, if you're into reading philosophical, or particularly 'abnormal' (less common type...) type of things, then this could probably be recommended for you!..! Anyway, this book was pretty awesome!


I was pertrified of M. Manson, his style and his music, sooo scared. But once i read his book, all has changed.

He is a very funny guy. I found him to be very Smart, Bright, Erudite, and very committed and passionate Artist to his music and his world. I respect him for his self expression and i, actually, like him now.

As i was confused of his sexuality before (gay or bi), he is actually very heterosexual man confidently exuding masculinity.

A great read!

If you're looking for sleaze, you will find it by the bucketful -- enough sex, drugs, S&M, and psychodrama to sate all but the most deranged appetite. What is surprising is that the author also displays insight, a sense of humour, and moral values. Worth reading even if you don't listen to his music.
