This book is the best book I've ever read in my entire life!! I am not a reader, but I'm an avid rock fan. I love rock music, and the lives of those who live the "rockstar" life really fascinate me. This book is well written, detailed, and it talks about everything you'd want to know about about the life of Marilyn Manson. It really makes you appreciate and understand the way he is now and how he became that way. Awesome book.. I can't say enough great things about it! Also, if you like this book, you will also like the autobiography of Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue "The Heroin Diaries". Like I said, I've never been much of a reader, but I read the Marilyn Manson auto in 24 hours..I couldn't put it down!!!!
