I thoroughly enjoyed this book about Iceberg Slim. Justin Gifford gives a balanced portrait of Iceberg Slim's life and does a brilliant job of painting a picture of the times in which he lived.
The book is especially good because it is not a re-telling of "Pimp". The book discusses Iceberg Slim's pimping career without recounting a lot of pimping stories. The author also looks at Iceberg Slim's entire criminal career.
Iceberg Slim's life after crime is as fascinating and the author does a great job of recounting it.
The narrator was very good as well. A bad narrator can distract from a story, but this narrator was good.
I highly recommend this book.

Read this autobiography of Robert Beck, only after you have read his collection of material. This book gives you his life from child to his death in 1992. His writing of his life as a pimp still has influence today.
