    "Let's read a bunch of garbage from a mass murderer. No thanks. Vince Bugliosi's Helter Skelter said all you need to know about this subject. I don't need to read the lies of a dark-hearted individual who never tried to rehabilitate. Stay away!"

    "Charlie Manson was my favorite Beach Boy. He even wrote one of their top forty hits. If you think that's interesting, you'll like this book. It's detailed and de-mystifies the celebrated weirdo and deranged prisoner, Chuck Manson. Get ready for a ride, baby!"
