I really enjoyed this book and his perspective from inside the Mongols. Naturally you have to keep his hidden agenda in mind, which is I believe to try to clean up the public image of the club after "Under and Alone" was published. His continual thread that the Mongols are a "cleaner" bunch than Bill Queen portrays has to be taken with a grain of salt, since Cavazos pleaded guilty to rackteering and was sent to prison within months of the publication of this book.

This is the perfect sequel to William Queen’s Under and Alone, the insider’s perspective to the Mongol Motorcycle Club if you will. I was skeptical picking this one up, fearing the book would be long on justification and short on explanation, but it was written with a neutrality I found admirable.

Cavazos never denies the crimes members of his club have committed over time. He’s candid about the absurd qualification practices new members, or prospects, must face before being voted in, but he also

I think every man no matter what should be respected; when you first meet the man, you should give him the respect that you would want. And then when you find out what he's all about, you'll see what respect he's earned. Some people maybe don't deserve it, but at least to begin with, it doesn't matter what he looks like, what he's into, you need to go ahead and treat him with respect. He's a man.

Honor Few, Fear None , page 196.

In theory, it just might work: a society built on respect. Who needs

another dirtbag biker who is soooooo misunderstood. all he wants to do is love on his son, ride bikes and have solidarity w/his brothers. any criminal activity that takes place is completely out of his sight--despite the fact that he's the International Prez...... interestingly, 4 months after this book was published "doc" was kicked out of the mongols for embezzling almost a million bucks from the kitty. he's also looking at 20 to life for a variety of rico violations uncovered by 8 uc's who in ...more
Like most biker autobiographies, this was disappointing. I guess what I'm looking for is some honesty insofar as the biker lifestyle is concerned, but Cavazos gives the same old song and dance: it seems the Mongols are just a bunch of motorcycle enthusiasts. None of them commit crimes, but if they did, it would just be a few unsavoury members acting without the approval of the club, you big silly! The book is worth reading for the insight into the gangster mindset, but don't expect any startling ...more

As with most books involving the world of outlaw MC's, you never know what is real and what is merely story. It has been this way since shows such as Motorcycle Mania and American Chopper hit the airwaves. It's natural to cash in.

This book is a telling from Ruben Cavazos who was at one time President of the Mongols MC. It's a very good read about his life and rise within the club. The stories are not outlandish and are believable. I found this book to be a good read and one of the few books that

WOW what a fascinating look into the mind of a person who can just about rationalize everything and anything. Ruben "Doc" Cavazos made a living as a CAT scan technician at the University of Southern California Medical Center. On his spare time he is the international president of the Mongols. This page turning book not only gives you a little insight on a Motorcycle gang but the power of brotherhood and what happens when you betray.

This book is like Under and Alone. It is about a Mongol and how he became a Mongol. It Started off slow and finished slow but it raised and slowed through out the book. If I would have to rate this book i would have to rate it about a 4.5. I would ultimately recommend this book for people who are interested in bikes and stuff that goes along with them.

The reason why I liked this book and rated it four stars is because it never got boring. The way they kept you entertained and how interesting things came after another and after another. It had a lot of action in the book. It also reminded me of another book I read called " Things get Hectic". That's also the reason why I liked it because it was really similar to it.

An enjoyable enough read from the Nat'l President of the Mongols MC.

It contained no surprises. It is the standard poorly written and unfocused quasi-criminal autobio that succeeds at all because of its fascinating subject matter. I actually think I enjoyed reading more about the author's street gang (Avenues) teen years than his adult outlaw biker times.

Though it does seem like a long shot, most of the stories seem far fetched, but every story has two sides. It is interesting to see the view from within the group instead of what the media chosses to show you on what will get the most views. All in all a quick, interesting read. (g.champney)

I enjoyed this book. It was penned by the former International President of the Mongols Motorcycle Club. Basically how he(Doc) became a Mongol and his life experiences with the club. He is currently in federal prison and is Out In Bad standing with the Mongols MC for becoming government informant.

Well i read under and alone so of course i had to read the other side of the story. Interesting read and obviously written with a hidden agenda which you can pretty much see through once you dive into this book.
