The Family Author:Ed Sanders The Family is the complete story behind the Tate murders, the sex orgies, the blood rituals and the abject slaves Charles Manson made of his men and women. It is not fiction-no one
could have made it up!
This book was very different from the viewpoint of Mr. Sanders. I find this version friendlier & more honest than Vincent Bugliosi's . More detailed about the daily life & sequence of events of "The Family". Mr. Sanders definitly did his homework on researching this one. A much better book than Helter Skelter. Mr. Sanders did not show "compassion" for the Family, but told the story a lot better than any account I have ever read. The ending is focused on the death penalty, so this book was written prior to the sentence changes. 4 star book. Good read.
