Until I heard Tainted Love (the Marilyn Manson cover)I had never heard any of his music. After hearing it I developed a mild interest in his work and decided to buy his autobiography as a means to understand him more. I can say that this book is one of the most incredible works I have read in a very long time. It is funny, strange and in places, profoundly disturbing but it has given me a deep respect for this man and an even deeper respect for his music.
People who denounce Marilyn Manson as evil or disgusting should really read this book. I used to think the exact same way but now I see the man and his music in a totally different light.
I don't read many autobiographies but Marilyn Manson's autobiography is a profound and compelling (if somewhat disturbing) testimony of a life that was very nearly wasted but turned around by a need to help people (strange as that may seem!).
Buy it, buy it now is all I can say. If you are sitting there thinking he is just some strange weirdo you need to read this book. It is an insight into the man behind the make-up and the shocking image and a defiant fight against stupidity in our world in many forms.
A truly magnificent piece of literature, worthy of any Manson fan or anybody just out for a good read. I literally couldn't put it down.

Format: Paperback
This is a truly amazing biography and a valuable insight into the driving force behind the self-proclaimed Antichrist Superstar. It's written with a dark, acerbic wit and its often intimate detail never fails to fascinate. Manson's childhood days are retold with a dry, sometimes twisted sense of humour. His trouble-hit time at school and the frightening vision of his grandfather's activities in the cellar are chronicled with painstaking attention to detail and helped boost my understanding of the ideas behind the Antichrist album. At times it makes highly uncomfortable reading - there are some graphic descriptions of some of his sexual encounters and the sado-masochistic leanings of Manson and his chums is at times disturbing. The most worrying part of the book is that Manson would most probably be in jail if he hadn't been able to use music to unleash his frustrations against hypocritical Americans, their Bibles and their televisions. If rock and roll is about excess, then Marilyn has had more than his fair share. It is a miracle the man is still alive. He is a true superstar, whether we like it or not, and this book sparkles with his nihilistic energy. He has been through hell and back, and anyone interested in what makes him tick should buy this book straight away. You'll read it more than once.

Being a long time Manson fan i had to check out his book ... right from the first page you are hooked by disturbing stories filled with humour and wit ... The book covers Brian Warners childhood and documents his life as shock rocker Marilyn Manson with stories about the other band members [past & present] ,friends , enemies and everyone in between ...The book also includes colour pics and a 'scrap book/diary' at the end. This is the kind of book you read over and over and still find something new each time ...10/10

I have been fairly interested in Manson from as far back as my early teens.

There were always a lot of rumours about him, and this book cleared up most of them for me.

I read this book over three evenings, which is fairly quick for me. The majority of the book is really interesting, but at times a lot more detail would have been appreciated.

The things this guy got up to are pretty shocking. For example, according to this book, he came very close to actually murdering a couple people. Refraining from judging him as a person Brian Warner (or character Marilyn Manson), this book is worth a read if you know anything about him or want to.

Being a fan of Marilyn Manson, I think that even if one is not interested in him or may not like his music, this is a must read book. It is written in extremely interesting story-telling way. The way the flow of the actions is depicted in the book is very easy to read and quite interesting at the same time. It provides a different look on Marilyn Manson's early life between early ages in his life and up to the early nineties his second album. Throughout the book you are captured by the sarcasm of Marilyn Manson and his view of all wanna be stars or people with too high opinion of themselves (with nothing to back it up). There are tons of stories of his life growing up as musician and often the difficult road an artist needs to go through in order to get to his desired status.

This book once again confirms that Marilyn Manson is indeed a much more intelligent person than most critics portray him as and that his music and artistic expressions are his own way of stating his view of life and the values and morals in it. In the book is also included some of his early attempts of being a writer of short stories, trying to have them published in magazines. His story "All in the family" is truly a great short tale which captures your attention until the end. Despite having dark feel to it with disturbed characters, it manages to keep the entertainment up to its sadistic end.

I wish there was a second part to this autobiography and hope it is somewhere in the making.
