by Sonny Barger

HarperCollins | October 2, 2001 | Trade Paperback

Hell's Angel: The Life and Times of Sonny Barger and the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.

The only authorized, authentic book about the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club by founding member, Sonny Barger—featuring a brand new introduction

Narrated by the visionary founding member, Hell's Angel provides a fascinating all-access pass to the secret world of the notorious Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club. Sonny Barger recounts the birth of the original Oakland Hell's Angels and the four turbulent decades that followed. Hell's Angel also chronicles the way the HAMC revolutionized the look of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle and built what has become a worldwide bike-riding fraternity, a beacon for freedom-seekers the world over.

Dozens of photos, including many from private collections and from noted photographers, provide visual documentation to this extraordinary tale. Never simply a story about motorcycles, colorful characters, and high-speed thrills, Hell's Angel is the ultimate outlaw's tale of loyalty and betrayal, subcultures and brotherhood, and the real price of freedom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMERICAN HISTORY Having read many biker related books,i found this one to be first rate for a number of reasons.First, this is the only book written by a true to life biker and second is that it covers a 40 year span of the most famous and powerfull motorcycle club in the world.From school teacher to hardcore biker ,this book will keep you turning the pages till the end.First rate reading that opens the door to the biker sub-culture.

Editorial Reviews

“Barger paints an engrossing picture of a distinctive subculture that receives precious little literary attention.”
