    Default Books That Inspire/ Inspired Manson

    Anyone remember any books that Manson may have mentioned before that inspired him for albums and such? I remember a few:

    -The Age Of Manipulation: The Con In Confidence. The Sin In Sincere

    -Subliminal Seduction

    -Paradise Lost

    -Dante's Divine Comedy

    -The Golden Game: Alchemical Engravings of the Seventeenth Century

    -The Tree Of Life

    -Diary Of A Drug Fiend

    -American Psycho

    -The Psychopath Handbook (mentioned by Manson in 2000, haven't been able to find it under that title)

    -Brave New World

    -1984

    -Invisible Monsters

    -Bardo Thodol: Book Of The Dead

    -(Book that I believe Johnny Depp have Manson as a gift about the roman emperor Elagabalus, which inspired the title for The Pale Emperor, as did Caligula). Don't remember the book's name.


    Author's:
    Friedrich Nietzsche
    Aldous Huxley
    Edgar Alan Poe
    Lewis Carroll
    Oscar Wilde
    Aleister Crowley
    Chuck Palahniuk
    Bret Easton Ellis

    Anyone else know of any more? The dude reads a lot and I'd like to know what else he has read. So if anyone can contribute, that would be great.

    The Psychopath's Bible: For the Extreme Individual
    Book by Christopher Hyatt - is the book you're looking for here, 100%.

    also highly recommended are apocalypse culture 1 & 2.
    if you can get the first edition of part 1, you can get king kill 33 along with it.
    i couldn't find it tho.

    but he endorses those books there, it has a funny quote by him on the back cover.
    also read any essays you can by crispin glover, rememeber that dude? great stuff.

    https://www.revisionisthistory.org/page7/page7.html

    there's the hook up, that 2nd link will take you to the updated book store of the co-author of king kill 33.
    he used to sell ring bound copies, i always wanted one, you could email and ask him if you like.

    cheers
