This is not all about Devils and Demons, but an inside look into a pop culture icon's life. Growing up in a small town, Brian Warner made it big. He has done a fine job in expressing his rise to fame from his humble beginnings and realizing that sometimes, 'fitting in' isn't such a great thing to be.

Now THIS is rock & roll. Whether you're a Manson fan or not, this is a respectable journey of a brave free-thinker who is dedicated to his art like nothing you've seen before. The pages are PACKED with humor, terror & mystery, all wrapped in one shocking human experience. You get chills when he describes his fears, and you can feel his tears as he takes us through his tragedies. If you take nothing else from the book, you should realize this man is a dark knight, taking hatred for attempting to rattle the cages of blind conformity. The grit & grime unsurprisingly cause this to be an R-Rated book, but it's honest & open and worth the experience. This story truly is a road through hell & back.

I was not a huge Manson fan (of his music) when I read this book. Its shock paragraphs kept me salavating when I peeled it open in a bookstore, and it did not dissapoint. I gave the book to my father (50+ yrs old) who loved it as well.

For years I've found Manson very interesting. I just recently purchased the book and finished it quickly because it was tough to put down. At it's end I was left disappointed only because the book wasn't twice it's thickness.

Ive always liked his music, just never understood the thought process and life events that created it. How deeply he hates and how contradicting society is in his eyes. People see him as a "devil worshiper" but he isnt, hes more of a realist. I love how he describes everything. He really is a very intelligent man. Its a good read for fans of his music, and people who want to see a new perspective. I wish the book never had a last page...

In true rock star form, Marilyn Manson sticks to the rock & roll tradition of engulfing himself in sex and drugs. Growing up in a small town and taking strange trips into his grandfather¿s secret porn infested basement, we get an angle that the media don¿t tell you. Born Brian Warner, Marilyn Manson experienced a life just like any other child going through school and being picked on. He dealt with his strangeness by selling porn and his hilarious attempts at getting girls to sleep with him. A 270 page account of his sexual encounters 'which includes a very descriptive encounter with an STD' and drug use, we get a look at the man who shocks so many. However, the only problem with this enticing biography is the absence of his parents¿ perspective once he became famous and the fact that the book does not go until the year this book was published. I wanted to hear more about sex, drugs and rock & roll. Overall, absolutely hilarious and an in-depth look at a very intelligent man.

If there is one thing I can say about this book, it is that I have a different perception of Marilyn Manson. He had a very sad and traumatic childhood. He never implies there was sexual abuse but there definitely was mental, emotional and verbal abuse. Way too much for a child to have to handle. The confusing part for me is who he really is. There is alot of drugs, sex and perversion going on in his adulthood with his band and the people he hangs out with. The book is an interesting read but I found myself confused alot as he jumps back in forth from his past to the present and I had to reread many paragraphs to get the jest of what he was trying to convey. When the book ended I honestly felt sad for Manson as I think underneath it all he is a good person and he is fighting to express himself and all his pain by rebelling against society and its ways.

This book is right along the lines of Manson's "Shock Rock" values. He appears to be an unassuming enough guy, but this book opens your eyes to who the man behind the make-up and the music really is. Take a look and you might find out you can understand and relate to this man a lot more than you originally thought.

This book is amazing, I never really knew much about Brian Warner before this book, but now I feel I know everything. He goes into great detail about what he's explaining; I could actually picture the things he expirienced in my head. I would totally recommend getting this book it is deffinently worth it. I <3 MARILYN MANSON

This is a really good and detailed book. It brings you through the life and mind of who we have known as Marilyn Manson. It tells you of all the wild and crazy adventures he's had through his life. I found it easier to understand Marilyn and what he and his music truly stands for and I also discovered many things I never knew about him after reading this book. Highly recommend this book for MM fans and people who would like a better understanding of him.

Marilyn Manson definitely surprised me in this book & all of the rumors i thought to be true about him turned out to be false. Although my religious beliefs are way different than his i totally respect him as a person & artist .

This was, by far, the sickest, most twisted and disturbing book I've read in a really, really long time. Which is why I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting. Reading this book is like sitting on Marilyn Manson's shoulder while he's actually living these scenarios. I knew that he was a little...unorthodox...in his life, but this takes him to a whole new level. It humanizes him and made me even more of a fan, not only of his music, but him as a person. It's a MUST read!

This thought provoking book tells about life from Manson's hard and abusive childhood to his present state; from a sexually harassing neighbor, a cross dressing grandfather to a dangerous girlfriend. It's a kick@** book.

i just finished reading this book. even though i have never been a "marilyn manson" fan i was interested in knowing who "brian warner" is. This book changed my perspective in who i thought he was. This book is very intriging, couldnt put it down and the most interesting book i have ever read. If i wasnt a fan then I AM ONE NOW. A must read book. There goes to show you "Never judge a book by its cover"

It is a very good book. Well written and very grim in its truths about society and religion. Marilyn Manson is a very intelligent man,

Are you looking for an oddly entertaining book? If so, you might find that The Long Hard Road to Hell, a autobiography written by Marilyn Manson, is just that. This book reveals anything from his childhood secrets to his drug crazed party nights. Like me, you may not like Marilyn Manson or his music, but this book was dark, deep, and at times disturbing. Right off the bat Manson grabs your attention as he recalls memories from his childhood. As a child, Manson had an odd obsession with his grandfather and the basement where his grandfather kept a locked drawer. Although Manson spent most of his time spying on his grandfather, he went to a local Catholic school that left him feeling like an outsider and rebelling against authority. When Manson finally persuaded his parents to enroll him into a public school, his obsession of girls, music, and drugs begins. Manson reveals grossly disturbing insights about the loss of his virginity, his new friends, and the first time he is introduced to drugs. After high school, Manson begins a journey unlike any other. Through his many girlfriends, countless attempts to make the ultimate band, and the nights he spent high on cocaine, you find yourself rooting for him to make it to the top. Some of the most vivid and interesting parts of the book, were the most gruesome, including the start of him inflicting pain upon himself. While you cringe at the thought of him dripping with blood after a show, you will be eager to read on and see what happens next. Overall this book was filled with emotion, and even those who do not enjoy Marilyn Manson will find themselves engrossed in this book. This book will take you on a curvy ride of Manson's life and leave you with a better understanding of him and his work.

Normally when people read a great book, they just reflect and move on with their lives afterwords. I can honestly say that this book has changed my life. Manson, by sharing his advancement into damnation, may have brought hope and inspiration to many people. Even though he had to go through so much in his life, he didn't give up. I wouldn't recommend this book to the faint of heart or the narrow-minded. This has to be my favorite book of all time. Simply amazing.

It fills you in with a whole new side of Marilyn Manson that noone really know until you read this. It also made me like him even more than I already did.
