Publisher's Summary

The Build reveals the "behind the scenes" story of the popular TV reality series American Chopper for the show's millions of fans

Author Paul Teutul Jr. is arguably the most creative builder of custom "chopper" motorcycles in the world. His talents were revealed to millions of TV viewers worldwide on American Chopper as well as later in a spinoff series, American Chopper Senior vs. Junior. The Build gives the listener a glimpse at Paul Jr.'s life behind the camera, which included volcanic conflict with his father and business mentor, Paul Sr. Using his own story of improbable success as an illustration, Paul Jr. offers insights on how anyone can find and activate often hidden talents. In a charming, often humorous way, The Build is a rallying cry to unleash your creativity and live life to the fullest.

Critic Reviews

"At the very beginning of what we came to know as reality TV was American Chopper - inspiring motorbike lovers all over the world with the beauty of what could be imagined into being on two wheels. Here's Paul Jr. telling his personal journey - still imagining, still building. Every man's journey is his own; every man's heart needs building from the inside." (Russell Crowe, actor, film producer, musician)
"Paul Jr.'s book The Build is a must-read. I respect his talent, but mostly I respect how he is living out his faith in the public eye. Paul's candidness about his father is not to attack but to shine the light of truth on how a son is affected by his father. Thanks for writing this book, Junior!" (Todd Hoffman, Gold Rush Todd)

Just Ok

Didn't really care for the gentleman's voice that read the book. The book had a lot of personal stuff that would of had more of an impact on the reader if Paul Jr. would of read it.

very interesting

My family and I have always been fans of American Chopper and even visited New Orleans in 2003 to see the Teutuls. I really enjoyed listening to Jr's side of things as I always felt sympathetic for Jr and the relationship he craved with his father. This book definitely was worth the "read" and I am so glad that they are back on!

Perfect!

If you could sum up The Build in three words, what would they be?

Raw, risky and heartfelt!

What did you like best about this story?

Just Paul's heart, it is so clear that he is on the right path.

What does MacLeod Andrews and Paul Teutul Jr. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Paul reads the first chapter himself, wow he is so real.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but couldn't make the time.

Any additional comments?

Very enjoyable!

I am a motorcycle enthusiasts, but not necessarily with choppers. I watched American Choppers because I was interested in the mechanical portion of the show. I really enjoyed the stories Paul, Jr. told from behind the scenes experiences & mostly about his Christian faith.
