Yeah, I also recommend 'The Family'. It's not written by the prosecutor but by a journalist and disputes some of Bugliosi's theories as to the reasons for the attacks. Personally, having met Bobby Beausoliel, I think The Family is more accurate.

Also, you should check out Jim Van Bebber's 'The Manson Family'. It's a wild movie. Good stuff.
