Summary

Never get too close to anyone, because you might have to kill them. Meet Mark ‘Chopper’ Read. You think you know him. His books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies in Australia. He's been the subject of an internationally successful film. His one-man shows have toured Australia to sell-out crowds. He's the most recognisable criminal brand name in Australia. But the truth is... you don't know him at all.

Toe-cutter. Blowtorch aficionado. Killer. Husband. Father. Children's author. Stand-up comedian. The real Chopper has been an enigma – until now, that is. This is the definitive Chopper story. From his strange, tortured childhood, to the formative years as a young gang member and developing criminal, to his decades in and out of prison in Victoria and Tasmania, to his friends and enemies, and his crimes and punishments, this book gives us the true stories that lie behind the Chopper myths, as well as the stories he's never revealed before.

Chopper

As great as always. Although some stories starting to get repeated from earlier books. But, due to what this book is supposed to be. It makes sense

Flogging A Dead Horse.

Absolutely nothing new and very drawn out. if you've never heard of Chopper Reid, then it's maybe worth the listen. Unfortunately for the rest of us.... it's pretty much the final cash cow of CR's life and a pretty drab 8 hours to get through.

Nothing much new

I don't know what I was expecting with this book, but whatever it was I don't think I got it. The narrator was very annoying and maybe that affected my judgement, but I did enjoy Chopper's earliest books much better.
