    A blueprint. A bible. What Sun Tzu’s Art of War was to ancient China, Pimp is to the streets. As real as you can get without jumping in, this is the story of Iceberg Slim’s life as he saw, felt, tasted, and smelled it. It is a trip through hell by the one man who lived to tell the tale—the dangers of jail, addiction, and death that are still all too familiar for today’s black community. By telling the story of one man’s struggles and triumphs in an underground world, Pimp shows us the game doesn’t change; it just has a different swagger.

    Story
    Where does Pimp rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best books that I've listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The thing that I noticed first was the cyclical trend that was developing throughout the story of good people being taking advantage of, becoming jaded and then reversing the strategy on the next person. It was also very interesting the hear about the philosophy/psychology of pimping how predictable the outcome would be. It really make you think about how the many tenets of pimping can be seen in a variety of present day relationships, whether business, personal, or otherwise and how easily one can fall for the "Georgia" if one isn't careful.


    Have you listened to any of Cary Hite’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was a lot more though provoking and well written than I expected.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it, you wont regret it.
