Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Out of all the books I have read about Marilyn Manson, this one is by far the one that I found the most entertaining and enjoyable. I have re-read this book so many times I could not possibly keep count. A must have for any Manson fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Newly Found Bible This book is amazing. I've read it 4 times now. It was so hard to put down the first time i started reading it. All the chapters were so outstanding and well written. It really put you inside the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! WOWWW. This book is absolutely insane. I'll just say this: if you can make it through the first chapter without throwing up (no, seriously) then you should be good to go. Before reading this book, I knew Manson was a great guy, because of interviews and praise from other people, but by reading his autobiography, you actually understand that he's a really decent guy, and deserves a lot of respect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I've always been a fan of Marilyn Manson so obviously i was gonna read his book.i wasn't sure what to expect. All in all i thought this was a really good book,i enjoyed reading it the whole way through except towards the end,i thought it started getting boring and repetitive. i know its not Manson's fault,at a certain extent he obviously couldn't write anymore,but i was glad the book was finally over,he dragged on at the end for too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disturbing, but hard to put down!!! I was totally intruiged by this book. As a person who has had blame put upon him because of his art, appearance & views, but yet so eloquently puts forward his opinions & thoughts I was totally amazed to read about his childhood, his relationship with god & his grandfather!! Not for the feint of heart, but for a music lover like myself an absolutely gripping read!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh I'm not a fan of Marilyn Manson, but I am also very open minded and figured it worth a shot. I wasn't impressed. It took me a while to get through & I couldn't wait to finish it so I could start another. A few good chapters, but nothing I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Life of Brian Warner I couldn't put this book down...i'm glad my friend recommended it! Brian had truly gone through some dysfunctional times....and probably still does. This book kept me intrigued, saddened, and disturbed all at the same time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review I didn't know what to expect when I first picked up this book. I knew little about Marilyn Manson, and yet I was intrigued. I experienced many emotions as I read ... horror, sympathy, sadness, anger ... Mason painted a picture of a disturbed yet highly intelligent individual. I commend him for having the courage to send clear messages about society and it's hypocrisy. At the same time, I'm disgusted by certain aspects of Manson's personal and professional life (particularly in the early stages of his band's development). Overall, the book was well written. That being said, I believe that cutting certain parts out would have been beneficial. I found myself skimming through several chunks of writing, such as the chapter on dreams. It just didn't seem relevant to the story, and wasn't of any interest to me. Nonetheless, if you would like to get a more personalized view of how Brian Werner became the Marilyn Manson we know today, I'd recommend this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shockingly candid, and increadibly interesting... Being, myself, a rabid manson fan, you would expect me to enjoy it. Of course i did, but i wasn't to in tune with his mind and his actual intelligence prior to reading it. This book is shockingly candid and incredibly interesting to say in the least...His life and Ozzy Ozbournes' have been compaired,( whos childhood was more.. tramatic you could say, to name one), but, there isnt a comparison between the two. Manson, whom i know, used O,O as an outlet into the industry, is an astounding artist, and can actually still be controversial. Sorry "Ozfans". The book yes does go into his childhood, but also reveals why he is who he is today. Also the novel, tells about his magnum opus, 'Antichrist Superstar'. That is all i will tell you about this astounding work of art,, Read on Mansonites,, Read on....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Manson's fabulous! I couldn't put this book down for a second. It was just so good. The whole book is pretty graphic like himself, sp if you dont like that kinda of stuff, I still recomend it to you. It's a really interesting book, I loved his brutally honest thoughts on everything. I hope he comes up with a newer up-to-date one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Captivating! Even if you don't like his music, he is a smart and insightful man who's life and views on life are (not so) beautifully displayed in this book. If you've ever wondered what's up with that Marilyn Manson guy you should definetely pick this one up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly insightful The book is so well written, taking into account every detail and key events that leave you hanging at the edge of your seat wanting to know "how did he overcome that?" or "how did he get out of that situation?" The book is a must read for any Marilyn Manson fan, and is even great for people who do not actually listen to his music. I love that it was written by him, not by some other guy who doesnt know his mind. It not only explains his views on the Church of Satan, the paradox of human emotion, drug addiction and deviant behaviour... but also gives insight into the truely brilliant mind of this musical pioneer and almost philosopher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Visual This book was sooo detailed. It felt like you were not only reading it but you were experiancing the same events as Manson. I also think it made it that much better because HE wrote it himself, it wasn't some guy retelling it by Manson's quotes from early magazines. I think Manson should do another book because so much has happened since then, if he did i would buy it right away. I don't think anybody can sit there and write not enough info beause there was plenty. Any fan of Manson would really enjoy this book. Even if your not a real big fan its good to read it to see the backround of how his opinons of Christianity formed and his attitude was built over the years. Another thing i love about this book is at the end it shows all the false rumors and what not. Overall i think this is a VERY good book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome book. This was a really good book. Its co-written by Manson himself as well. Everything you would possibly want to know about Manson (up until about 2000/2001) is in this book, as well as a tour journal and personal photos from his childhood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Work Of A True Rocker WOW....that about sums it up, if you are a fan of Marilyn Manson then get this book and read it. It is a pure work of art, a masterpiece in its own right. It portrays him in no way anyone has ever seen him before. Pure Greatness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ARE YOU A FAN? It's a biography of the man himself. Except i loved how it is not told like a classic bio. It's like a novel you can't put down...something will make you want more on every page. You are definitely not a fan until you have read this book from front to back more than once!
Date published: 2003-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! This was definately the greatest book I have read, to date. I always liked Manson's music but I never really understood him. Anyone that reads this book will definately have a new found respect for the guy, wether you like him or not. It opened my eyes more to other viewpoints and I must say that I agree with pretty much everyone Manson states in this book. A Must read for anyone who likes to expand thier minds, because this book will definately do that, and more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Hard Road out Of Hell I have been interested in Marilyn Manson's music for the past few years . People harass me now in highschool on a daily bases and I always thought absolutly noone knew what it was like to be in my shoes . Marilyn Manson , being a genius , highschool mascott , in the "Loser" group at his highschool and having noone in the world to talk to and noone to understand him became what was not close to expected by his peers . He is a GREAT rock artest , with a book out and the papers constantly talking about him . His book made me so proud to know someone out there was like me after all . If he wasn't taken by Rose McGowen I would be the first one in line to swoop him off his feet because he means so much to me . I hope he is always the kind , outspoken individual he made of himself . Don't diss those unless you give yourself a chance to know them first . What you do to a person will go back to you 2 times stronger than what you dished out .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from uh huh Why is this book so much more than the one published by Regan Books? Oh well this is a very good book and I enjoyed it alot compared to most other books I've read by more famous authors. You'd think a singer couldn't be capeable of writing such a good book, but he is. Also marilyn has a fiction book coming out soon so watch out for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what you'd expect.. If you've ever faced adversity then you will relate to this book. A twisted example of how society and media can warp an individual--and provide an outlet for salvation. This book will affect you. It makes you appreciate your existence. It made me feel as though it didn't matter the mistakes I might make, because I can always save myself. No matter how far into Hell you go, you can always come back from it. If I wasn't a fan of Marilyn Manson before, I am now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The God of Filth First off this book is not for the easily shocked. If you do choose to by pass this book you are missing out on a great story and lesson in life. Marilyn Manson may not be your idea of a good author but that's wrong, he is intelligent and diverse. There is something for everyone to learn from this book. In my opinion, it is the BEST book I have EVER read and I have read a lot of special books. Thanks.

About the Author

Marilyn Manson has more than 450 scars, not counting emotional ones.

From Our Editors

To some he's messianic and to others he's diabolic. He's Marilyn Manson, a rock star and agent provocateur. He's also a writer of his own story, an account that traces his rise to the top of the charts to a past life as a nervous Christian schoolboy. The Long Hard Road Out of Hell features exclusive tour photos and behind-the-scenes anecdotes fans will appreciate. Manson, whether you like his music or not, bravely sets down his story in print for judgement of his worthiness as musician and icon.
