I read this because Dave Chappelle recommended it in his comedy special.

The plot is about a man's rise and fall as a pimp in the 1930s and 1940s. Oddly enough this reminded me of Malcom X's Autobiography. If Malcom X hadn't left the streets this could've been him.

This book is fantastic, Iceburg Slim gives an unflinching, uncensored look at his life, his enviornment, and his actions. I won't spoil the plot further, it'll send you on a roller-coaster of emotions; from sadness to disgust, humor to anger, disbelief at the actions of the justice system, the side characters and Iceburg himself.

It's great, it's sobering, and it's relevant. Read it!

DISTURBING. This book will scar you for life. You will learn about a dark side of human nature that only this topic can illuminate. It’s quite an educational trip into the underworld that extends back to the worlds oldest profession. At the same time it’s entertainment. It’s tragic. It will haunt you.

I've been forcing myself to read more often as a way to stay off of social media, this book has brought me on a journey that I never expected. I look forward to finishing up my current list of books and adding more from Iceberg Slim to Marchs must read list.

Behold, the birth of hip hop culture in this amazing story. Though its sad that using pimp game is so effective on women this story gives a great description of it in practice. Just when you think the author is glorifying the pimp lifestyle he condemns it for what it is; cruel and brutally effective on the modern, damaged woman.
Shou
A truly interesting autobiography. I was not aware of the suffering and angst in Icebergs life. The book is interesting for anyone who is curious about the mechanics of pimps and prostitutes. Many of the people in the genre live with the mentality of an animal. They live only for the present day and have no concept of tomorrow. That aspect alone makes the book readable and fascinating.
Arakus
Great book, tells a story (True) about abuse, neglect, struggle, survival, addiction, betrayal, self-preservation and redemption.
This self titled bio, lays out the traps of a young man who was abused, controlled and dominated by those whom he trusted; only to rise, fall and finally rise again, throughout his life.
The author tells the reader to NOT go down the road he's gone, Nor to glorify his past lifestyle. It's great to know the author found his True calling; as a man who purges his being by expelling his life choices, with the help of his wife; via this bio.

I stumbled upon this book by way of a video I watched on Prime Videos.I tried to read it with the idea that this was done back in 1969.I thought it was excellent, even though the subject matter was questionable.Maybe that's why it was a good read.Even today with all the erotica and street fiction out there, there's something unique about this writing! I can imagine how this must have shaken the literary world back in the day.Too bad it wasn't given its 'just due' back then.
Even if it was only part true, the fictional elements and details are superb.
The flow is smooth, it's easy to follow and there's so much vivid detail.I thoroughly enjoyed this selection and I hope that one day I'll be able to write something this good!
This is an amazing book. It takes you into another place and time where Black life was difficult and everyone seemingly wanted to get over to have a piece of the so-called American dream. Beautifully written and ultimately very poignant and sad. Not sure I would’ve read this without Mr. Chappelle mentioning it in a comedy special but I’m very glad I did.
