Manson In His Own Words

as told to Nuel Emmons

This book is the result of hours upon hours of interviews by Manson’s old prison chum Nuel Emmons.Manson In His Own Words is probably the worst title Emmons could’ve come up with, anyone that’s heard Manson speak can tell you that he has been paraphrased. Regardless, the book expands on Charlie’s background, growing up in prison, and finally, life with the family. Definitely an interesting read, but take it with a grain of salt.

Book Description: Distilled from hundreds of hours of interviews, Manson’s story reveals an enormous amount of new information about his life and how it led to the 1969 Tate-LaBianca murders, and provides grim insight into the making of a criminal mind. 16 pages of photos.

Pages: 232

Publisher: Grove Press; 1st Grove Press. Ed edition (June 1988)

    A political tone to it with Nixon and all. My mom used to tell me if I jump off a clift will you do the same. More discretion should have been used by killers. Nobody shoved those pills down there throats.

    Manson should be let out.

    I first bought this book in Victoria train station in London in 1988 and it was called “Without Remorse.” Manson, according to George Stimson called it “bullshit” and it has come under nothing but savage criticism for years and years. But right at the start the author tells us he’s paraphrased Manson’s rap into a form that the ordinary reading bod can understand. Also, he had to write from memory because he wasn’t allowed to record or take notes. So it should be seen for what it is, one man’s recounting of what another has told him, rather than a detailed autobiography. I agree that the present title is probably the worst title the publisher could’ve chosen.
    Ironically, in the light of Manson’s denouncing of the book, if the events portrayed in the book were actually true, I think Manson would have more support and understanding {whether he wants it or not ! People can’t help having an interest} and would cast more doubt on what happened to him during his trial. By rubbishing the book, he kind of cuts off his nose to spite his face…….

    That should be “Without conscience”, not “Without remorse.”
