I guess if I was to rate it on what I expected, it would have received 3 or 4 stars, but I have to be honest. This book is terrible. Although it does state some facts, most are taken out of context. Like for example, a caller who says he's a Satanist and wants to sacrifice things because he loves listening to Slayer. Well Bob makes Slayer out to be evil and bad guys because they aren't willing to write a letter to this kid to tell him to stop worshiping Satan. They did say that his parents and f ...more

Bob Larson (AKA The Lyin' King, Beggin' Bob) was (still?) a Christian radio talk show host, "author" and public speaker that claims, among other things, to be an expert on the Occult. You can add comedian to his list of titles, because he only repackaged the same Satanic Panic propaganda that infested our minds a la Geraldo Rivera. Bob makes blanket statements, uses the terms witchcraft, Satanism, Devil-Worship and occult interchangeably, thereby affirming his lack on knowledge in any of the sub ...more

I've always really enjoyed hating Bob Larson. here is an audio clip of him talking to a teenage girl about her love of The Cure. Give it a listen, and then you too can hate Bob Larson!

Larson relies upon the ignorance of parents everywhere.

If they were not ignorant they would not be silly enough to think black metal causes Satanism!

This book is a tour de force of sheer lunacy. Quite enjoyable. I especially liked the bits where he thinks D&D players are satanic and prone to violence.

Such an awesome book, I turned mine into a freaking grimoire with all kinds of cool notes and drawings in it, but my mom threw it away.

Larson was born in Westwood, California, the son of Viola (née Baum) and Earl Larson.[2][3] He was raised in McCook, Nebraska.[2]

Larson plays guitar; he has claimed his early experiences as a musician led to his concerns about occult and destructive influences in rock music.[4] He would later incorporate his guitar playing into some of his sermons. In the 1960s, the focus of Larson's preaching cen
