Praise for Iceberg Slim and Pimp: The Story of My Life:

“What shines through is one man’s desperate attempt to be something, no matter how sad that something appears to us. And it is literature. It has influenced thousands of young Americans… We don’t need to idolize him but we do need to respect him as a writer who told what he knew of the truth.”
–Sapphire, in her 1998 introduction to Pimp

“The works of Robert Beck, aka Iceberg Slim, have made a powerful impact on our global cultural landscape and should be essential reading. We have to get beyond his life as a pimp, and accept him as one of the most influential writers of our age.”
–Irvine Welsh, The Guardian

”One of the greatest black writers in American history.”

“The capitalist’s manifesto.”
–Dave Chapelle

“All the questions of life can be answered if you read this book.”
–Chris Rock

“Iceberg Slim does for the pimp what Jean Genet did for the thief.”
The Washington Post
