Publisher Description

“[In Pimp], Iceberg Slim breaks down some of the coldest, capitalist concepts I’ve ever heard in my life.” —Dave Chappelle, from his Nextflix special The Bird Revelation

Pimp sent shockwaves throughout the literary world when it published in 1969. Iceberg Slim’s autobiographical novel offered readers a never-before-seen account of the sex trade, and an unforgettable look at the mores of Chicago’s street life during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. In the preface, Slim says it best, “In this book, I will take you, the reader, with me into the secret inner world of the pimp.” An immersive experience unlike anything before it, Pimp would go on to sell millions of copies, with translations throughout the world. And it would have a profound impact upon generations of writers, entertainers, and filmmakers, making it the classic hustler’s tale that never seems to go out of style.

Pimp

It's not always pretty but it's always real. This book tells a story of a man that became a legend in the secret society of Pimps and ho's. You travel back in time where you see the birth of the modern Pimp and Hustler. It's dynamic and colorful. A riveting read. A unprecedented look into the mind of this urban legend that had since never been duplicated. A must read for anyone who has the slightest curiosity about any master manipulator and first class motivator.

Pleasantly surprised.

This book is way outside of what I normally read. Parts of the book made me laugh out loud and other parts were truly cringe moments. The book is well written and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
