Pimp by Iceberg Slim Book Summary

“[In Pimp], Iceberg Slim breaks down some of the coldest, capitalist concepts I’ve ever heard in my life.” —Dave Chappelle, from his Nextflix special The Bird Revelation

Pimp sent shockwaves throughout the literary world when it published in 1969. Iceberg Slim’s autobiographical novel offered readers a never-before-seen account of the sex trade, and an unforgettable look at the mores of Chicago’s street life during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. In the preface, Slim says it best, “In this book, I will take you, the reader, with me into the secret inner world of the pimp.” An immersive experience unlike anything before it, Pimp would go on to sell millions of copies, with translations throughout the world. And it would have a profound impact upon generations of writers, entertainers, and filmmakers, making it the classic hustler’s tale that never seems to go out of style.

Great story of redemption!This book took me into a world that I have never experienced, but was always curious about how it all worked. Iceberg Slim described his life, which showed how he got his start as a Pimp, but he did not glorify it, in fact, he basically advised against this way of life. He did a great job of walking the reader through his thought process, and how he left that life and found fulfillment. I will be reading the rest of his books..Score: 5/5

Game & InsightThis book will provide you with some of illest game that is to be sold, but it will also provide some of the most intricate literary lines ever written. Read between them, take notes if need be, and allow the insight to fill your noggin..Score: 5/5
