Taming The Beast: Charles Manson’s Life Behind Bars
Ed George was a prison counselor at San Quentin when Charles Manson was sent away for the Tate-Labianca killings. In Taming The Beast, George tells not only about his relationship with Manson, but how working along side Charlie effected his life. The stories, both interesting and unique, show a side of Manson rarely seen. This book is perfect for anyone wanting to learn more about what Manson has been up to, since being incarcerated for the 1969 killings.
Book Description: Edward George understand Charles Manson as few others ever will. Former prison counselor to the messianic killer, George enraged Manson as an agent of the state’s criminal justice system, listened to him as a trusted confessor, spoke for him as an erstwhile press agent-and-almost-connected with him as a friend. George saw Manson in a way the public never would, witnessing the method to his madness, the charisma that underlies his sickness, the pathetic abandoned boy within the homicidal man. If you read Helter Skelter and think you know the whole story about Charlie Manson, think again. You don’t know it all until you’ve read Taming the Beast: Charles Manson’s Life Behind Bars.
