  1. Although originally released in 1988, Nikolas Schreck essentially re wrote what was the original book entitled The Manson File At nearly 5 times as long as the first printing of the 1988 book, the original texts are nothing but mere footnotes appendix for the new material in this ambitious and obsessively constructed Manson masterpiece Although I have written jokes at Schreck s expense in the past, I must admit that The Manson File Myth and Reality of an Outlaw Shaman is easily the most importan [...]

  2. I just finished this heavy, 900 pager I wish there was another 900 pages to go Yes, it was that good Schreck s writing is pretty flawless He is not afraid to throw humor as well as sarcasm into this very serious study of the eternally flawed Manson Murders He waxes eloquent on Manson s philosophy and ecology based ideals while careful not to slip into a worshipful tone This tome is enlightening and daring Read it with an open mind and you will find your head spinning with new facts about the cas [...]

  3. WHAT YOU GET PART ONEPhilosophy pagan says the editor Testimony as given by Charlie in court Music Art Selected Writings stories assorted rants and Poetry like the lyrics but so all of which is by Charlie himself.Alas, perhaps it is no surprise to find out that Manson s authentic voice is greatly predictable There are a few themes only, and he lays them on with a trowel WHAT CHARLIE SAYSThe Establishment or straight society as it used to be called comes in for some sharp words You eat meat with [...]

  4. Probably the only out and out pro Manson book that has ever been published Contributers range from Manson sympathizers to out and out family members in essays and art The good bulk of this book however is straight from Charles Manson himself Interviews, quotes, transcripts of court and parole hearings, poetry and fiction written by Charles Manson, even artwork by him The Manson File is probably the best book you can get to learn anything about Manson and his philosophy.

  5. This was great Very informative If you want to know the truth read this and listen to what he says in interviews Even if he acts in a way that would make you think hes crazy we can all act this way and are all capable of what he is Now we need to understand that what we re told on the news is b.sWe have to look into all of this ourselves.And heres a good book to start with

  6. Finally an objective book which gives a voice to those who have been demonised by the media for decades The I research this case the clearer it becomes that Manson was the patsy used to try to end the counter culture of the 60 s Anyone with a true interest in this case will be gripped 0 out of 10.

  7. Stunning book and by the far best unbiased book out their on the man and the case Forget Vincent Bugliosi s pulp fiction Helter Skelter and in all honesty, the only two books worth reading on this issue are this 2011 edition of Schrecks Manson File is is fully updated and explanded to over 900 pages and Marlin Marynick s Charles Manson Now.I cannot recommended this book HIGHLY enough.

  8. by far the best book ever written about charles manson it unveils the truth about what really happened and turns down all the myths that have been going around this case nikolas schreck goes back and rewrites history amazing book

  9. I feel like this was of a scrap book than actual attempt at scholarly research Better books on Manson in my humble opinion would include The Family, Shadow Over Santa Susana, and even the Bugliosi book All of these books offer a even handed account of the thinking behind Manson s philosophy of environmentalism and strange racial dialectical ism, as well as the actual events surrounding Spahn Ranch and the Tate LaBianca murders A dear friend of mine let me borrow all three of those books many y [...]

  10. This Book is essential to ALL people wanting to know the truth about Charles Manson,read with an open mind.Schreck has done an amazing amount of research and written a masterpiece.BUY IT,READ IT.

  11. I don t really have anything original to say about this I m only likely to add my voice to an already pretty substantial chorus of babble This might be the most fair minded compilation of Manson related materials that I know of I d certainly recommend it over Bugliosi s Helter Skelter wch I can t remember if I ve read but I ve seen him on TV that was disgusting enuf or even over Ed Sanders The Family The people who compiled this know the subject There s ephemera here that only a dedicated resear [...]

  12. The best of the books I have read about Manson.Most other authors seemed primarily concerned with making money Bugliosi, Sanders, etc or fell into the trap of using sensationalism even though their original works were, before editing, probably fairly good Marynick, Emmons Schreck seems to have remained completely academic in this work, and perhaps because he chose not to use a large scale publisher, managed to protect it from unnecessary fiction designed to make the work exciting inaccurate.

  13. I read the original back in 1990, and it did give some insight into the mind of Manson That being said, the pro Manson commenters need to get a grip I said some of the same things when I was in high school and trying to project a scary image, but then I grew up

  14. Esta obra resume m s de veinticinco a os de investigaci n a cargo de Nikolas Schreck sobre el fen meno de Charles Manson en 991 p ginas repletas de informaci n valios sima y perfectamente documentada.Este Libro de las Revelaciones de San Nikolas ilumina dimensiones desconocidas de Manson como fil sofo, m sico, m stico gn stico, cabeza de turco de la Mafia, revolucionario, amigo, amante y camello de las estrellas del rock y del cine m s famosas del Hollywood durante la d cada de los 60.Nos quedam [...]

  15. Click here for my conversation with Michael Channels, currently in contact with Manson mightymercury home 277I found this last week checking behind my bookcase for something, and realized I d never finished reading it It s the most authentic overview of Manson s whole trip, equal parts foolish evil whatever and sensible for instance he seems to have always had a deeply rooted concern for the environment and ecology sensible , but he also believes Hitler was Christ and Nazis were just trying to b [...]

  16. Essential reading for those who want to have as much information about the case as possible at hand Not one detail is glossed over or left out sometimes a retelling of a short event is summed up with 20 or 30 pages of details.Also has some nice illustrations and a collection of material from Manson himself, including a transcript of the entire 1988 interview for the authors film on the subject.

  17. Unlike most of the books about Manson it doesn t just focus on the man himself or the case but goes into hundreds of pages of detail about his various hollywood mafia connections.One of only three good books on the subject one of the others is ironically the other Manson File by Nikolas Schreck as well

  18. Finally a fair and balanced account about Charles Manson and his alleged deeds, brainwashing et cetera This book doesn t rely on the phantasy of the author It sticks to the fact and doesn t revert to the weird theories other authors have done.

  19. One of the best books I ever read I loved the details about Manson in the psychedelic and post hippie eras, sixties fans would love this book.

  20. This obsessively researched volume is well worth the somewhat high retail price An eyeopening page turner Though the author admits there is no final word to be had on the Manson phenomenon, he does a DAMN fine job explaining the mysteries and obscured truths of the case Perhaps my highest praise is that, after reading Schreck s book, I m thinking of selling off many of my other Manson related books Which, in effect, gives him the final word.

  21. A truly good read nice illustrations, and huge in size so takes several days at least to read even for a seasoned reader.The subject itself may seem narrow but it actually covers a variety of topics from the 60s themselves, to the mafia, to Mansonn s life, beliefs, and even primary source info from his own work.

  22. A very good book overall, and because it actually saw a significant printing it s not as hard to find as the author s other works.However this version has largely been replaced by the 2011, expanded Manson File, as the newer edition contains a lot of material which in the 1980s was not available.

  23. Well worth purchasing over 900 pages long so a but daunting and the language used is sometimes dense but it was a great book nonetheless.A revision, essentially, of the 1988 Manson File by the same author treats Charles Manson less like a loony fascist than an academic subject which was a breath of fresh air

  24. One of if not the best work by Schreck, and the same goes for the Manson genre also holds up well as true crime cult novel.Definitely the longest book in any of these genres, one of the most professional it s density and length may actually be daunting to the average reader, anyone without good english mastery may find the dictionary their reading companion.

  25. The best work to date on this rather broad subject, broad because it goes into minutiae that other works on Manson prefer to avoid most works cover his spirituality, or his politics, or the murders themselves, but this book covers all three.

  26. A very good book, reading it for the third time.Basically destroys the helter skelter theory put forth by Bugliosi also helps clear up some other misconceptions revolving around Manson, overall a good read

  27. A very good book overall, the writing style is slightly dry but that is sometimes a good thing because it makes it academic.Don t expect many grotesque fantastic stories, it s a bit like a college lecture.

  28. Definitely the premier book written about the Manson case all others fall far short of this 900 page marvel.Not only does it expose the nitty gritty truth about the case and the aftermath, but also Manson the man and myth,

  29. A little something for everyone conspiracies, the mafia, drugs, insanity, witchcraftIt must have taken a long, long time to do all this research considering not only the dense content at times too dense for some readers and the absolutely gargantuan size of the book itself.
