Summary

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.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: ""All we needed was gasoline and a place to sleep." That statement pretty much sums up the life and times of Sonny Barger, former founding member of the infamous Hell's Angels motorcycle gang. This captivating and provocative insider account provides unlimited access to the inner workings of the group. John Pruden narrates the life and times of Barger via a straightforward, no-frills performance. Pruden's everyman narration matches the tone of the author's prose, and he ably brings to life the fascinating story and endless array of colorful characters. Listeners beware: this audio edition is a bare-knuckle punch that might just bring you to your knees. A William Morris paperback. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
