Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Absolutely fucking loved it."

    I bought the physical copy of this book and the rest of the Sonny bargers books. Get a perspective of the club that's hardly heard of.

    "Amazing"

    Fantastic book from an American legend. Support your local 81. Such a wild bunch of characters - it's hard to believe these guys are real.

    "The flip side of the coin"

    I'm not a biker though I worked at a Harley dealer for a few years. I've watched the shows and read the books on the informants side of things and how they paint M/C's. I'd love to to meet Sonny after hearing this book, it was great the History and the Stories of his life he has shared here I recommend this strongly. What a Smart, intelligent,badass guy!

    Story
    "Well Done"

    This is a great biography. Sonny Barger didn't hold back on the dark side of the members of the HAMC. They were a rough bunch and did some rough things, but he made it clear they never organized crime. Whether you believe him or not, this was well written and very enjoyable, but I'm not letting my kids listen to it.

    "Great Story, better than expected"

    The book covers as much as possible in a short amount of time. He covers The Good The Bad and The Ugly. While still leaving a little to your imagination.

    Story
    "Compelling and insightful"

    As someone born into an outlaw way of life, much of this book struck a chord. More so, however was the frank and unapologetic way in which Sonny told his tale. Brilliantly narrated, I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone with even a vague interest in MC's and the bike culture.

    "Brilliant!"

    Week narrated, well written story of a legend. If you are a biker you will understand, if you are not you will still enjoy what is a captivating story of how one man chose to live his life differently against insurmountable odds and did better than survive. He triumphed.

    Story
    "Mundane and self obsessed diatribe."
    Would you try another book written by Sonny Barger or narrated by John Pruden?

    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


    What could Sonny Barger have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More action and details


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of John Pruden?

    Robert duvall


    What character would you cut from Hell's Angel?

    Not many to choose from

    "Fascinating"

    I have always found The Hells Angels and the media circus that surrounds them fascinating so it was great to be able to get the true account straight from the mouth, and hear the other side of the story.
