Manson in His Own Words: The Shocking Confessions of ‘The Most Dangerous Man Alive’

by Charles Manson and Nuel Emmons

We have called him a devil and quarantined him behind such labels as “the most dangerous man alive.” But Charles Manson remains a shocking reminder of our own humanity gone awry. This astonishing book lays bare the life and the mind of a man whose acts have left us horrified. His story provides an enormous amount of new information about his life and how it led to the Tate-LaBianca murders, and reminds us of the complexity of the human condition. Born in the middle of the Depression to an unmarried fifteen-year-old, Manson lived through a bewildering succession of changing homes and substitute parents, until his mother finally asked the state authorities to assume his care when he was twelve.

“Parts of this book seem a bit self-serving, but I suppose that’s to be expected. I was discharged from the Army right after the murders that led to Manson’s notoriety and have read most of the books and seen the movie, Helter Skelter. Consequently, this account makes perfect sense to me. I can’t imagine what it would be like to live a life like he has.”

Bob Stine

“I have read many books on Manson as well as other “Serial Killers.” There is legitimate debate as to whether or not Manson himself should be lumped into this category. Digression. Of all the books I have read on Manson, surprisingly this one seems the least self-serving. The whole notion of “Helter Skelter” (which I honestly believe was preached to his followers, but in actuality was in no way the catalyst for the Tate-LaBianca murders) as being the one and only motive put forth by prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi seems to me to be one of the most self-serving. I won’t reveal anything too important, but Manson is surprisingly candid in this book and his version seems much more plausible and realistic than any of the other accounts I have read.”

Jon E Hudson

“This book is recommended to any reader who is interested in true crime/biographies. Charles Manson tells the world in his own words about his life and leaves the reader wondering about the misconceptions when the media takes off with a story without having true facts. This book is interesting and the upbringing of these individuals that kill is sad. Charles Manson, like so many who have been abused and neglected, growing up without a father, have resentment and bitterness in their lives. I would encourage anyone to read the book.”

“Its a good book.”

“I enjoyed it.”

Carmen, from Facebook

“Loved this book. It gives an insight more into charlies personality and what made him tick rather than focusing on the law/crime side like Helter Skelter! I suppose its what you like to read, everyone is different. Ive always been interested in psychology anyway. I thought Taming the Beast was a good read.”

Val, from Facebook

“Story ok but not all true.”
