5.0 out of 5 stars Very Revealing of the pimp game.This is Criminal Orientation, 26 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Pimp: The Story of My Life (Sapphire presents) (Paperback)
This book is a masterpiece. No one can come close to telling a story about pimps than the ice himself. Donald Goines' "Whoreson" was good, but this tops that by a long shot. However I advise anyone with the propensity to pimp not read this book because it may put ideas in your head. Robert Beck says he wrote this in order to show the pugnacious nature of pimping, but in his efforts to do so, he glamorizes the pimp, which is himself. While the book did spend a little time talking about his days in prison, I dont think a clear description of how hard prison life is was expressed enough. I especially like the ending of the book when Iceberg Slim sees his error in the way he neglected time spent with his mother and tries to make up for lost time by staying at the hospital with his mother for days without ever leaving. It makes the reader conscious of the fleetness of time and how precious a mother's life is to a son even the coldest hearted of sons the Pimp Iceberg Slim
