Summary

When this best-selling autobiography was originally released, everyone was shocked: The Long Hard Road Out of Hell was the darkest, funniest, most controversial and best-selling rock book of its time - and it became the template, both visually and narratively, for almost every rock book since. Marilyn Manson is not just a music icon, it turned out, but one of the best storytellers of his generation. Written with best-selling author Neil Strauss and modeled on Dante's Inferno, this edition of The Long Hard Road out of Hell features a bonus chapter not in the original book. In the shocking and candid memoir, Manson takes listeners from backstage to emergency rooms to jail cells, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, and recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered music superstar in the country. Along the way you'll hear what happens to fans - and celebrities - who dare to venture backstage with the one of the world's most dangerous rock stars. In the words of Elle magazine, the book "makes Madonna's infamous Sex seem downright wholesome in comparison".

Fascinating stuff. It really made me think and look at the man behind the image. He has more heart than some of these people parading around as the people's mouthpiece.

Not sure what to make of it

Quite the ride, some rather shocking admissions in here. Definitely changed the way I think about Manson, not sure if for the better though. Ended up skipping some parts as I just found them to go on and on when there wasn't really any need for it.

It isn't well written down

Interesting but poorly written. A lot of metaphors ends randomly. Unsure whether to recommend this book
