From the Back Cover
The best-selling autobiography of America’s most controversial celebrity icon, Marilyn Manson (with a bonus chapter not in the hardcover).
In his twenty-nine years, rock idol Manson has experienced more than most people have (or would want to) in a lifetime. Now, in his shocking and candid memoir, he takes readers from backstage to gaol cells, from recording studios to emergency rooms, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, and recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered music superstar in the country. Illustrated with dozens of exclusive photographs and featuring a behind-the-scenes account of his headline-grabbing Dead to the World tour.

I can say this autobiography didn't really have an effect on my opinion of Marilyn Manson I'am glad I now have an idea of where he is coming from. I never thought he was a bad person a little unconventional. My experiences of Marilyn include seeing his "Mechanical Animals" album and trying to get the courage to ask my father weather he was a boy or a girl at the time. Oh and I had to buy this book twice because my mother threw my first copy away behind my back with the guise that this man is a pedophile. To be frank he does do some risky things in this novel even I wasn't to keen on. Good book and worth the read but at this point a new one is due.
Personally I wish there was more, his career and music has continued to grow. He has become a much better songwriter since these early days ( the more you do something the better you get, unless you suck which he definitely does not).
If he ever writes another volume I will definitely be reading it,
I've read countless rock bios & have been fascinated by Manson for a couple decades. I have a feeling this book came out right before another growth spurt & if he was honest with himself, this has to embarrass him now. Just as we were self - righteous know - it - alls at one stage of life, he & his music, band & message have changed quite a bit since this book was published.
Still, it's a difficult read emotionally. Found myself repulsed or shaking head in disbelief (deaf meat orgy went so far over the line for example). I'd be more interested in reading about what he's learned since then.
This book reads like a secret diary one hopes will never be found; the height of megalomania is that he not only published his dirtiest laundry, Manson seems to have searched out the worst bits to include. Yet he wonders why he's misunderstood. Hmmm. I'd still read any book(s) he's written since this one, hoping for a more mature outlook from Marilyn with all he's hopefully learned since this book was published.
