About the Author
Actor, screenwriter and audiobook narrator, SCOTT BRICK definitely gives new meaning to a hyphenate career with credits in film, television, stage and radio. He studied both acting and writing at UCLA, spent ten years with a traveling Shakespearean company, and then went on to become a freelance writer. In 2000, Brick ventured into narrating audiobooks and quickly found himself embraced by the audio world. He’s won numerous Earphones Awards for his narrating skills, as well as Audie Awards. AudioFile Magazine named Brick “one of the fastest-rising stars in the audiobook galaxy,” and proclaimed him a Golden Voice.

Again, read this book, it's great, but get it in print.
Hey Amazon! If you had mentioned these things in the description, I could have made a better choice. Please, please make these things clear from the beginning. It's my first Kindle disappointment, so I'm not bitter, just sad.
I thought I had a pretty good idea of most everything that had happened during this whole ordeal that ended the era of "peace and love," but I didn't know the half of it. Bugliosi needs over 700 pages to vividly recount every second of what led up to the Manson murders and every detail of what was done to bring the killers to trial and put them away. This is without question the fastest and most intense 700 page book I've ever read (and I've read a few), and that can be credited to the sheer madness of this case and the brilliance of the deep-thinking, amazingly-talented prosecutor who closed the case and then wrote this book to tell everything about it.
First, in general, prep yourself by performing memory exercises first! There are so many 'characters' involved in the telling of this story. So many details of who, when, what, relationships, time frames, etc. it's hard to keep track if you are prone to letting your mind wander while you read. But of course with an ebook, you can refer to the list of people, etc. speaking ebook, my second warning.
If you feel you'd like to view the crime photos, then skip the ebook version as these photos are not included. Of course, most of us have a sick, slightly morbid curiosity to these things, but I'll admit that after reading descriptions of the murders, I'm not completely sure I'd want to see photos.
So that's it. Fascinating, sickening, head-scratching. Charles Manson and his Family make you ask a lot of questions. This book guides you through most.
