Both eerie and odd, the family is portrayed as a group of traveling strangers turned satanic zombies.

This is the best book on Manson, the whole Helter Skleter story, period.. Not sure if it's all factual or not. I have read many different things saying it is, it isn't. It's a great book. And incredible story and my favorite on the subject of Manson. I have a top 5 Manson book list that I think gives you a better picture of the whole story if you read them all. This is may favorite. A must read if you're a fan of this subject and story. This subject has so many twists, turns and side stories happening. It's just an incredible story. My picks in order on this subject are - 1) The Family, 2) Shadow Over Santasusana, 3) Manson: In His Own Words, 4) Will You Die For Me?, 5) Helter Skelter.

Having read this, I kept hoping it would get better. It didn't in my opinion. If you dont already have a working knowledge of Manson, "The Family" and their crimes, this book isnt for you. It was like trying to put together a puzzle of the crimes & chronology of what happened & when. Not much on the various murders & crimes committed, evidence etc. Very little background on either the killers or their victims. Instead, ALOT of speculation & unverified information on both killers & victims, there was virtually nothing to substantiate alot of things that the author puts in the book. The author was in L.A. to gain info to write this book & claims tons of "inside" connections, both with "The Family" & law enforcement. However, most of his contacts are unknown names & people who joined the family after the murders, ones that were drawn to the saga of the Manson "cult". Much of the book is (again unverified) second hand stories about people claiming The Family were Satanists, conducted human & animal sacrifices, allegedly taping them, although no tapes ever came out. Many many claims that read more like a tabloid. It was very confusing trying to figure out where the author was trying to go with so much speculation on things he gives the reader no sources for or how they would relate to the crimes.
Most disappointing was the wild rumors the author included about the victims, especially the victims at the Tate residence. Again, he doesn't verify any of this. And I won't repeat the horrible things he put in the book about the Victims.
The author also seems obsessed with obtaining alleged orgy etc tapes that unnamed sources told him exist pertaining to the victims. He did what many others at the time did, victimizing the victims.

Overall, I'd say if you're interested in rumors, you'd enjoy this book . Its poorly written, rambling & you won't hear much about Manson,the others convicted, the crimes themselves, barely any actual evidence. You won't get anything near a clear picture of what happened. But you'll read page after page about orgies, drugs, satanists, random unsolved murders where no evidence exists that they are connected in any way.
My own pet peeve was the authors constant use of 60s slang you won't understand unless you are on the author's wavelength, made up words such as M-man (among many other titles he bestowed on Manson) . The constant use of the saying oo eee ooo was a bit much after the 25th time or so.

Most disappointing was the slander he aimed at the victims. And the fact that it reads like fiction as he almost never cites a source.

I'd like to just forget I even read this.

Ed Sanders researched and wrote this immediately after the Tate/Labianca murders. It is a straightforward, specifically-detailed, chronologically-arranged account of how Charles Manson formed and controlled his cult of hippie killers. The book is based on hundreds of interviews and first-hand research and contains numerous details not explored in the far less insightful Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi. In particular, Sanders explores the connections between the Manson family and other cult groups, especially the Process Church of the Final Judgment, and also the connections between Manson and organized crime. I was fortunate enough to get hold of the unexpurgated hardcover edition of the book--as a result of a lawsuit, the paperback had all mention of the Process Church omitted and is thus far less valuable as a resource. Sanders' writing style, which is tinged with 60s slang, takes a little while to get used to, but ultimately grows on the reader as a reflection of the author's personal voice. This book is a foundational requirement for anyone interested in the reality behind the Manson myth.

As far as I'm concerned everything is speculation cause I wasn't there. If you get enjoyment from reading about this famous incident then you would likely find this interesting and I suppose well put together. I would say it makes more sense I would think to find an edition with the chapter on The Process Church as I find their potential involvement in all kinds of things to be possible. Likely and actually are different things and I really have no vested interest in any of it other then the mystery is interesting again I wasn't there for any of it I couldn't ever think I know anything about it.

In high school we called it 'term paper'. In college we called it a 'thesis'. In everyday life we call it 'knowledge'. So to learn the full story of any subject one must study every source they can find. "The Family" by Ed Sanders is one such book that qualifies. It's so jammed with researched and verified material that it's hard to keep up with at times. Not only facts and figures of all known Manson activities, but very suggestive (yet verified) related crimes. And the plethora of information isn't something Sanders forgot. He continued updating the story until this version of the book was published in 2002, which no other book has done. It is also the only book that gives an accurate timeline of seemingly endless events. Tracking that many arrests, traffic tickets, and police observations would normally need a small staff to research, but Sanders did it alone. During the trial he even spent considerable time at Spahn Ranch with 'Family' members to get a first-hand look at them instead of second-hand descriptions. Which in turn reveals a new understanding of the entire story. While Vince Bugliosi's "Helter Skelter" is generally considered the final word, "The Family" radically changes that premise. Manson wasn't a master super-villain, he was a despicable loser of the first order who gained fame not just from such heinous crimes, but from badly over-zealous media. And with Sanders' off-beat, jocular writing style you'll find this book as absorbing and entertaining as any. "The Family" is one to keep.
