    Book details

From the world's most controversial rock star comes his shocking, confessional and revealing life story. In The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, Marilyn Manson candidly and vividly recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered celebrity in America.

A cross-dressing grandfather, a sexually abusive neighbor, a brainwashing faith healer and a schoolteacher searching for satanic messages in rock songs are only a few of the characters who populate his bizarre childhood.

From backstage to jail cells, from recording studios to emergency rooms, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell chronicles Manson's rise to fame at the price of his humanity and his descent through the circles of Dante's Inferno: Lust, Violence and Treachery.

His story is illustrated with dozens of previously unpublished photographs, and it features a behind-the-scenes account of his headline-grabbing Dead to the World Tour -- vilified, banned and protested by politicans, preachers and parents alike.

In his 29 years, Manson has experienced more than most people have -- or would want to -- in a lifetime.

From the world's most controversial rock star comes his shocking, confessional and revealing life story. In The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, Marilyn Manson candidly and vividly recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered celebrity in America.

  • By Laura Woodring on May 15, 2017

    It's a shame that other reviewers rated this as trash or made up. Unfortunately for some of us, we have lived these horrors, some worse than others. I related to his story and life. I felt the same way and empathized. Only those of us who rose from the ashes of disfunctional families and secrets will understand. To others who are horrified or simply can not believe that there are people who grew up in ways that are hard to comprehend, instead of turning your back and making a crude comment, (something we are used to btw), be greatful you did not have to endure this type of life.

    Brian H. Warner famously known as Marilyn Manson, is one of the most genuine humans I've ever had the honor of meeting. I've had said honor twice, and each time I left feeling as though I just spent time with one of this generations greatest minds. I highly respect him, love his art (both music & physical/traditional art), and appreciate this autobiography. Definitely worth every penny & then some.

    Manson has unleashed the working of his mind in this book. It definitely left me wanting more. It chronicles his life and career up to the Antichrist Superstar lp. He is very candid about much more than just the typical rockstar sex and drugs though there is plenty of that as well.Personally I wish there was more, his career and music has continued to grow. He has become a much better songwriter since these early days ( the more you do something the better you get, unless you suck which he definitely does not).If he ever writes another volume I will definitely be reading it,

    Arrived in great condition and on time. I purchased this as a replacement as my original copy was damaged. I think it's a great read for anyone that likes Marilyn Manson or anyone that is just curious to know more about him. It does have some explicit content (drug use and sex) so perhaps not age appropriate or everyone.

    Too much is made in the reviews about the parallels with Dante and the 'journey through hell' Manson goes through. This isn't that at all. The header references to Dante are just a tongue-in-cheek book design touch. This is a rock autobiography by a rocker who was a writer before he took to being a musician. Therefore it is a very well written rock autobiography. In addition Rolling Stone guy's guy rock-star author Neil Strauss is a co-writer. So it's very well written and very polished. If you like the genre, you will eat this up. Personally, I knew little about Marilyn Manson going in and enjoyed his candid account of his remarkable life story and rise to fame. A great read.

    How much is true I can't imagine. Every once in a great while he says something profound that I agree with, but the rest is immature & cruelty compounded with megalomania of the egocentric teen Manson never grew out of. I do enjoy Manson, have often thought he was wise beyond his years, so this book disappointed me because it revealed a vain, cruel and ignorant Manson.I've read countless rock bios & have been fascinated by Manson for a couple decades. I have a feeling this book came out right before another growth spurt & if he was honest with himself, this has to embarrass him now. Just as we were self - righteous know - it - alls at one stage of life, he & his music, band & message have changed quite a bit since this book was published.Still, it's a difficult read emotionally. Found myself repulsed or shaking head in disbelief (deaf meat orgy went so far over the line for example). I'd be more interested in reading about what he's learned since then.This book reads like a secret diary one hopes will never be found; the height of megalomania is that he not only published his dirtiest laundry, Manson seems to have searched out the worst bits to include. Yet he wonders why he's misunderstood. Hmmm. I'd still read any book(s) he's written since this one, hoping for a more mature outlook from Marilyn with all he's hopefully learned since this book was published.

    This book is amazing, I would recommended it to anyone who can overcome the harsh language and see the value of the things he has to say. It will make you feel empathy for him and the people he has crossed paths with, then at other times you will laugh (for me probably the hardest Ive ever laughed at a book). There's something about the instances where he feels guilt or sympathy for others that seemed sparked small amounts of humanity in him one at a time. He became the rock star he always wanted to be growing up and built a legacy on shocking people, and when you look past his shocking exterior you see he is one driven and intelligent individual

    Brian's story is well-written and, despite popular belief, gives insight into his clever nature and lack of fear in challenging social structure, especially in religion and American culture. Some parts are incredibly disappointing, however: we all go through awkward, uncomfortable teenage years. That's no excuse to look at women as objects for one's pleasure or amusement. Overall though, the message is solid: challenge authority, challenge social norms, and use your art to make the world a better/more rational place.
