READING: When this best-selling autobiography was originally released, readers were shocked: The Long Hard Road Out of Hell was the darkest, funniest, most controversial, and best-selling rock book of its time—and it became the template, both visually and narratively, for almost every rock book since. Marilyn Manson is not just a music icon, it turned out, but one of the best storytellers of his generation. Written with bestselling author Neil Strauss, beautifully designed with dozens of exclusive photographs, and modeled on Dante's Inferno, this edition of The Long Hard Road Out of Hell features a bonus chapter not in the hardcover. In the shocking and candid memoir, Manson takes readers from backstage to emergency rooms to jail cells, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, and recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered music superstar in the country. Along the way, you'll hear what happens to fans—and celebrities—who dare to venture backstage with the one of the world's most dangerous rock stars. In the words of Elle magazine, the book "makes Madonna's infamous Sex seem downright wholesome in comparison."

READING: The best-selling autobiography of America’s most controversial celebrity icon, Marilyn Manson (with a bonus chapter not in the hardcover). In his twenty-nine years, rock idol Manson has experienced more than most people have (or would want to) in a lifetime. Now, in his shocking and candid memoir, he takes readers from backstage to gaol cells, from recording studios to emergency rooms, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, and recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered music superstar in the country. Illustrated with dozens of exclusive photographs and featuring a behind-the-scenes account of his headline-grabbing Dead to the World tour. Amazon.com Review One doesn't usually think of rock stars as insightful, but, against all odds, glam-trash superstar Marilyn Manson has written a book that is actually an intelligent look at growing up. This autobiographical bildungsroman brings out the creepiest aspects of childhood, conveying the terror and fascination that young Marilyn (then called Brian) felt when looking through his grandfather's pornography, getting his first French kiss, and being taunted by the girls he wanted to "date." Manson has the benefit of having grown up as an outcast and loser and then having become a star without forgetting what he went through. This gives him an incredibly broad perspective, which he brings to bear on his ordinary life in order to convey the more potent and frightening moments that shaped him into the pale-skinned weirdo that the Christian Right loves to hate. Best of all, Manson is shockingly honest, and portrays himself as occasionally stupid, self-centered, over-sensitive, ignoble, and, mostly, highly fallible and human. It's a long way from the auto-hagiographies that other stars have written, and it's easily one of the best reads in celebrity bio. --James DiGiovanna Review "By turns moving, funny, appalling, and disturbing...There has never been anything like it." -- -- Rolling Stone "Amusing...lots of sex, bondage, drugs, intrigue, and mental decay." -- -- Village Voice "By turns moving, funny, appalling, and disturbing...There has never been anything like it." -- Rolling Stone "Clipped, colorful prose that fits the author's larger-than-life personality like a pair of rubber shorts." -- Paper "Fascinating, sleazy account of his coming of age and ascent into damnation." -- Us "If the Marquis De Sade had a son in a hard-rock band who wrote a book, this would be the book." -- Christian Science Monitor "Makes Madonna's infamous Sex seem downright wholesome by comparison." -- Elle "Nothing short of captivating in all its intentional, over-the-top bad taste." -- Edge "Repulsive...well-written and uncommonly addictive." -- Chicago Sun-Times "Unimaginably perverse and demented." -- Newsweek

READING: In Dissecting Marilyn Manson, author Gavin Baddeley performs a cultural autopsy upon Manson, examining the seminal influences and psychotic sources that have gone into making him the Frankenstein monster that he is today. With its heavily visual approach, the text and pictures create the impression of a pathological scrapbook, emphasising the idea of the performer being put under the knife, exploring the Manson mythos in an irreverent but authoritative manner. Each chapter exposes one gruesome angle after another, gradually revealing just what makes Marilyn Manson tick and why so many find him so compelling. Dissecting Marilyn Manson offers the legion of dedicated Manson fans an alternative look into his macabre and twisted world. This revised and updated edition continues dissecting up to the present day, analysing recent developments in Manson’s professional and private life, including his recent high-profile court case, marriage to fetish model Dita Von Teese, and creative forays into the worlds of art and film.

READING: Era digital yang dicapai saat ini tentu tidak dibangun secara instan. Proses pertumbuhannya dibangun secara perlahan-lahan, berdasarkan ide-ide yang diwariskan dari generasi terdahulu ke generasi selanjutnya. Para inovator terbaik ialah mereka yang memahami alur perubahan teknologi dan meneruskan tongkat perjuangan inovator terdahulu. Ketika merancang komputer digital di Harvard pada 1937, Howard Aiken terilhami oleh fragmen Mesin Selisih buatan Charles Babbage serta "Catatan" Ada Lovelace yang ditulis hampir seabad sebelumnya. Penciptaan personal computer pun terus-menerus disempurnakan, mulai dari era Vannevar Bush-pembuat komputer analog elektromagnetis pertama di dunia pada 1931-hingga inovasi brilian Steve Jobs lewat produk Applenya saat ini. Setelah luar biasa sukses dengan karya terdahulunya, Einstein dan Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson kembali melakukan gebrakan dalam penulisan biografi. Lewat teknik risetnya yang tak tertandingi, dalam The Innovators, Isaacson berhasil mencatat peran semua pihak yang terlibat dalam sejarah teknologi digital di dunia, bahkan sosok-sosok yang selama ini sekadar menjadi catatan kaki sejarah belaka. The Innovators merupakan paket lengkap pengetahuan: sejarah revolusi teknologi dan kebangkitan era digital, profil para inovator paling imajinatif yang berusaha mewujudkan ide-ide nyeleneh, cara membangun kerajaan bisnis yang tersistem dengan rapi, pembentukan pola kerja yang sesuai kultur perusahaan, hingga upaya-upaya kreatif untuk memetik ide inovasi yang mampu mengubah dunia.

Rock Brands further addresses the use of religious and political words and images to gain an audience, as well as the latest technological influences of gaming, reality television, and social networking websites.

READING: This book details the origins of the names of 240 musical acts, focusing on the most popular groups (and a few individual performers) from the 1960s through today. Even casual music fans will recognize almost all of the acts discussed. A few one-hit wonders are included simply because their name is so unusual (Mungo Jerry, for example) that they warrant a place in the study. Each entry focuses on the meaning and/or origin of the act’s name, what it had been called previously, and any other names that were considered and rejected during the naming process. Also included are facts and figures about the act’s history and place in the rock music pantheon, the year the act was formed, the names of original members and later members of note and the act’s best known hit. The book lists bands alphabetically to give the casual reader the opportunity to open it to any page and read at leisure, the historian the ability to easily pinpoint the subject of his or her research, or the die-hard rock fan the chance to learn from A to Z the name origins of the biggest acts in rock and pop music history.

Pages 304
ISBN 9780802196125
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: A wide-ranging collection of essays on millennial American culture that “marshals a vast pop vocabulary with easy wit” (The New York Times Book Review). From the far left to the far right, on talk radio and the op-ed page, more and more Americans believe that the social fabric is unraveling. Celebrity worship and media frenzy, suicidal cultists and heavily armed secessionists: modern life seems to have become a “pyrotechnic insanitarium,” Mark Dery says, borrowing a turn-of-the-century name for Coney Island. Dery elucidates the meaning to our madness, deconstructing American culture from mainstream forces like Disney and Nike to fringe phenomena like the Unabomber and alien invaders. Our millennial angst, he argues, is a product of a pervasive cultural anxiety—a combination of the social and economic upheaval wrought by global capitalism and the paranoia fanned by media sensationalism. The Pyrotechnic Insanitarium is a theme-park ride through the extremes of American culture of which The Atlantic Monthly has written, “Mark Dery confirms once again what writers and thinkers as disparate as Nathanael West, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Sigmund Freud, and Oliver Sacks have already shown us: the best place to explore the human condition is at its outer margins, its pathological extremes.” “Dery is the kind of critic who just might give conspiracy theory a good name.” —Wired

ISBN 9781920143206
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The powerful sequel to Fireforce Originally published as Survival Course in 1999, now long out of print, Out of Action is a reworked and updated edition, the sequel to the best-selling Fireforce—one man's war in the Rhodesian Light Infantry. The book is divided into two distinct parts: Part 1, 'War', chronicles Chris Cocks's final 16 months of combat in the Rhodesian bush war, as a stick leader in PATU, the Police Ant-Terrorist Unit. It is a time of unbelievable cruelty as the part-time white reservists battle overwhelming odds, without air support and ... without a future, as Mugabe's ZANLA guerrillas swamp the country in the build-up to independence in 1980. Part 2, 'Peace', recounts the author's painful adjustment to life as a civilian—a fifteen-year odyssey in the embryonic state of Zimbabwe. It is an intensely personal journey in which the author pulls no punches as he describes his clumsy attempts to come to terms with a) the new dispensation of black Africa and b) himself. It is a cri de couer, the story of a young man, brutalized by war, who seeks escape in alcohol and drugs, and who, in the process, causes immeasurable pain and suffering to those around him. These too are the casualties of war. Ultimately, though, it is a story of hope, of a man's triumph over his own demons. Chris Cocks lives in Johannesburg. He is a partner in the recently established South African publishing house, 30° South Publishers. He is the author of Fireforce (now in its fourth edition); a novel, Cyclone Blues; and is the editor and compiler of The Saints—The Rhodesian Light Infantry.
