Mindfuckers

Ed. David Felton

Buy this book

The publisher may have tried to conceal it with that faux-gothic font, but this book is indeed called Mindfuckers. Appropriate title it is, too, given that it's about Charles Manson, the too-little-known Mel Lyman, and others who engaged in mind control and crime in the sixties. If you can find a copy, buy it -- outside of R. C. Zaehner's Our Savage God, it's the most enlightening book on the Manson goings-on, and the only book (that I know of) on the Lyman "Family" (the outfit that gobbled up Jim Kweskin).
