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.
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.

An excellent book, from an amazing man. It gives the history of the Hells Angels like only Sonny himself could tell it. He doesn't just talk about the good times. He's also reflects on the bad times with a no bullshit approach. I have personally read it 3 times and highly recommend it to any true biker out there! I've read it 3 times and will probably read it another time in the near future
The inside look of truth that can only be told by the HA is great. The pursuit of freedom, brotherhood and a love of riding is the something many can relate too. The narration was good not great just good but the story was outstanding.
This was a good book to listen to. The reader did a fine job capturing the tone of the story. There are multiple claims of originality that it would have helped Sonny's story if he were able to show proof of some of his claims. i would recommend the story to anyone who would like a quick view into the motorcycle gang lifestyle.
It's interesting to hear the story from the person who lived it. I don't think this is the complete story I don't think you will ever know the complete story . the simple fact that you didn't go through what he went through means you haven't earned the right to hear it. All in all pretty interesting if you like motorcycles or outlaw biker groups of any kind.
I don't regret reading this book, but my expectations fell short. It's a decent read... but didn't tell me anything I don't already know or couldn't learn off of TV.
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
I would attatch documents and media coverage: If it was done you could see the source as to why he feels his club is wrongly portrayed.
There should have ben a special audio introduction where Sonny himself intriduced the reader. His voice has become the symbol on what smoking can do.
Yes, he is a great storyteller even though he used his talents for things I can never support. The fact he's been working for unless sam provestlige he could have ended up differently: If they'd let him.
Never see criminalsvas here's which never did. Rather it taught me to look behind a life to try to understand the choices.
Criminality is something I have always been against. Parts of this book shows what a mess you get into by not obeying Lars. Like "The dirt" this listen is full of stories about sex,gigs and guns Plus violence so heavy one sitting was imopossible. Do I regnet buying it? No. I would not listen to it again though.
"Mundane and self obsessed diatribe."
No, definitely not. Not very entertaining, rather self indulgent book not really engaging and it drones on far too much. Wasted a good few hours listening to it, waiting for it to excite... And that didn't happen
