Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

This is one of those books that you can't wait to get back to. I've never seen any documentaries on the Manson murders or have read anything about them. This book is well written and narrated, it takes you right into the investigation, trial and sentencing of these murdering animals. Great book.

I'm 55 and only heard the Beatles on the radio. Never owned any albums from them or new anything about their history. Oh my this book goes into so much detail, it's FANTASTIC!!! Looking forward to part II.

As the lead singer of the Doors, Jim Morrison's searing poetic vision and voracious appetite for sexual, spiritual, and psychedelic experience inflamed the spirit and psyche of a generation. Since his mysterious death in 1971, millions more fans from a new generation have embraced his legacy, as layers of myth have gathered to enshroud the life, career, and true character of the man who was James Douglas Morrison.

Had no idea Jim was such a raging alcoholic, a sad and tragic thing. This book gave me a new appreciation for their music.

More than 30 years after disbanding in 1980, Led Zeppelin continues to be celebrated for its artistic achievements, broad musical influence, and commercial success. The band's notorious exploits have been chronicled in bestselling books; yet none of the individual members of the band has penned a memoir nor cooperated to any degree with the press or a biographer.
