I read Marilyn Manson's autobiography & this book seems acurate about Marilyn Manson himself, I like that this book gets more into the business of the group about the other members of the group and details about them making their first three albums. It doesn't get into sex and drugs problems they had so you'll have to read his autobiography for all that stuff. This book doesn't really go into about his childhood and life either. ALot of facts taken from Magazine articles and interviews. But ...more

Given that this was the "unauthorized" biography, I wondered if the content was going to be particularly critical of Manson. Instead, I discovered what felt to be a fairly balanced and realistic picture of a person. Following the ups and downs of the rock scene, the challenges of turning personal philosophy into something marketable, and navigating personal relationships. Marilyn Manson is depicted as neither a good guy that's just misunderstood nor a villain to be reviled.

I'm really glad I read

Great book that is slightly different than the rest and provides a different viewpoint than is usually talked about.

While this book did provide information that Manson had overlooked in his auto-biography, I feel that the author allowing Daisy to provide his insight created a lot of biased throughout the book. While what he was saying could have been true, it might also have been exaggerated due to his harsh feelings towards the band.
