Whatever happened to this guy? Oddly enough it really is a interesting story, true story. He really had a weird granpa. Come As You Are: The story of Nirvana is a much better rock star bio.

Repulsive and morbidly fascinating. A truly thought-provoking and well-written book: not only a retelling of Marilyn Manson's life, but also an examination of fame, death, decadence, anger, publicity, and human nature.

A truly addictive book, excruciating from the view of Manson. Whoever is a fan of the 'Shock Rock' king Marilyn Manson must read this autobiographical work. It comprises and elucidates Manson's feelings and distress in a world governed by aimlessly unmotivated inner desires. It's appalling and shocking that a boy of Manson's character then was flabbergastingly transformed into the new self. It exemplfies the consequences and circumstances Manson had to face in his life that he has become what he is now. It's apparently a 'long hard road out of hell' in the way it's written.
