Publisher's 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".

Amazing.

From start to finish this was one of the most entertaining audio books I️ have ever listened too. I️ was never a huge fan of him, and this book has changed that. I’m now going back and listening to all of his music , and I️t is truly great stuff. The rawness and realness in this book and his music are right in your face. My friends have had to deal with me siting parts of this book over and over again this past week. My girlfriend thinks I’m falling in love with Marylin and that she is getting replaced, we will see if that ends up being true or not. Anyways, this book is seriously a fucking work of art.
