Publisher Description

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.

Amazing read

I got this book and it was amazingly well written. His style of writing was so vivid that you almost forgot it was a biography. I would find myself thinking 'Man that's crazy, what if that really happened' and then had to remind myself it was a biography and had to simply think 'man that's crazy' but even as crazy as some of the stuff seems, it was a really amazing book

Manson is the real symbol of individuality!

Crazy stories that made Manson who he is today! Also how music was his only outlet from being what everyone says he should of been or even isn't! Great book!

An Epic Anti-Hero Rock-Star Orgin Story

The Marilyn Manson story, is basically the story of a kid (Brian Warner) who was bullied, who grew up not only to be a bully... But also a world-famous rock star.

That’s one way of reading this book, the other way is to read this book as a story of someone confronting their own trauma, their own demons, their own fears, their own emotions and insecurities; and overcoming them, to find a strength and self-assuredness they never knew they had. It’s the story of someone not only rebelling against society, and society’s expectations of them, but also transcending them to make their own place in the world.

The social commentary about hypocrisy and the veneer of morality and tradition, that most people hide behind, is something that will seem either vapid or profound depending on how far you take it; and how seriously you take Manson as a person, performer, or philosopher. But what’s ultimately redeeming about a story that might otherwise simply exist to shock, to brag, or to provoke is the self-awareness and tongue-in-cheek humor of the author.

You can say pretty much anything you want to about this book, but it definitely isn’t boring!
