A chi interessa questo genere di nicchia è estremamente interessante, il servizio impeccabile, libro in inglese! In Italia questo libro è pressoché introvabile. Consigliato!

3.0 su 5 stelle Fascinating Pictures, Disappointing Text 3 marzo 2000
Di Un cliente - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
I pre-ordered my copy of this book with a great deal of anticipation, and am still having mixed emotions about the purchase. Mr. Mannix's collection of pictures alone is likely worth the price of the book for many - I was, however, seeking something a little more researched and scholarly (not boring, just well put together and intelligent).
Mr. Mannix establishes himself in the first four or five pages an unapologetic reporter of inaccuracies (e.g. when he uses Helen Keller as an example of a 'freak', stating that she was born a blind, deaf mute... She was, in fact, born normal, and suffered these impairments as a result of a nearly lethal fever in infancy), and the publisher seems to have only given the text the most cursory of proofreadings (one 'freak', a midget, is referred to as having been the State Treasurer of "taxes" (he was the State Treasurer of TEXAS).
Am I picking nits? Absolutely. However, when I purchase a book I tend to expect something with a little more polish and depth than a high school research paper. Otherwise, for sheer annecdotal value, Mr. Mannix's book is an intresting and at times touching read. I would reccomend it to anyone for the pictures, and only the the exceedingly patient for the text.
5.0 su 5 stelle Those who are not as others 8 dicembre 2012
Di MrHyperborean - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This is a fascinating little book. There are lots of pictures. An intimate look at those "who are not as others." I love to show this book to my friends and just watch their jaws drop again and again as they page through it. The pictures are accompanied by interesting stories and tidbits of information. A lot is mentioned about the carnivals, freak culture, freakshows, etc. This is a Re/Search book, known for pushing the "ultra-alternative." Daniel P. Mannix is also the author of two other books I highly recommended, The Hell-fire Club and For Those About To Die. I was quite pleased by it, and since I am endlessly amused by how much it seems to freak people out, its a coffee table display book in my house.

4.0 su 5 stelle for the oddity lover 30 aprile 2008
Di K. Fournier - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Acquisto verificato
My sister, ever since I lent her "Geek Love," is really into books set in carnivals, circuses, or with sideshow characters. This book, my first foray into nonfiction, was definitely something different.

I was surprised to see upon shipping that it is actually more like a textbook than a paperback novel. It is larger in order to show more details in the photos, and like other reviewers mentioned, some of the photos are extremely graphic. This book is not appropriate for children. Also, the narrative is somewhat lacking. The writing is fine, especially because it humanizes sideshow folk, but the photos often don't match up to what is being said on that page, and sometimes photos don't have back story within the text.

That said, my sister loved it. She liked getting the real story about these real people, and how they interacted with others and amongst themselves. It was a great birthday present, and I'm glad I chose it for her!

I used to have all of the RE Search books. In the days before the internet they were essential for discovering weird stuff. After a few moves I lost track of them, but remember them fondly.

I was inspired by the latest season of American Horror Story (Freakshow) to repurchase this one. It's still interesting writing, but you can find way freakier photography online these days.

5.0 su 5 stelle Captivating look at the human oddities of carnival shows 7 aprile 2007
Di Schtinky - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Acquisto verificato
Originally released in 1976, 'Freaks: We Who Are Not As Others' is a bit dated in that many of the people mentioned have since passed on. When first released, the book was quickly pulled for reasons I can only guess at, foremost it probably being too graphic for the times. Its large size and many pictures more than make up for its slimness (only 120 pages).

Author Daniel Mannix gives us and inside and personal look at the old-fashioned "Ten-In-One" show: the Freak Show. Mannix worked in the carnival business and personally knew many of the people he speaks about, such as Pricilla The Monkey Girl and Emmett The Alligator Man (who were happily married). Before "political correctness" and phrases like "Differently Abled" came along, the Ten-In-One was often a haven and a home for those born with birth defects.

Midgets, dwarves, giants, obese folk, "the human skeleton", bearded women, co-joined twins, those born without arms or legs, pinheads, hermaphrodites, skin conditions, the double-jointed, and deformities - all were welcomed at the Ten-In-One and many made a great deal of money at it. This isn't a book making fun of these oddities, its book that celebrates their differences, their lives, and their ability to love.

Mannix's prose is informative and conversational, the stories are true (though he admits a few have questionable roots), and the many pictures are captivating, graphic, and ... well, freakish. I found the book so absorbing that I read it through in one sitting. There's a lot of history addressed, from the court jesters of historic kings to an intimate look at the most famous Siamese twins Chang and Eng, to the reasons why its an insult to call a dwarf a midget or a midget a dwarf. Mannix keeps the book thoughtful and respectful while giving insight into the origin and history of the Freak Show.

Whether curious or simply researching, this is one of the best books ever written about the old-fashioned sideshows. If your interested in the subject, then don't miss out on this informative and graphic story of a group of amazing people living in the amazing world of the carnival. Enjoy!
