From the editor-in-chief of Easyriders magazine, One Percenter presents an unprecedented social analysis of American outlaw biker culture.

Nothing to see here. Move along. Oh ok, there is some interesting things here,but it isn't anything you probably haven't read somewhere else already. It is more a telling of how it all started and how it just isn't like it once was. Nothing on what a real 1%er is or how they even live or become that way. Yes it does give the re=telling of how the name "1%er" came into play but anyone interested in this culture should already know it by now.

This book covers everything fro pirates, to biker films, to global warming.

Sadly about the only thing it doesn't do is give any real depth into the outlaw biker fraternity. If the author us right and the media have tried to vilify bikers, rather than step up with an objective look, the author glorifies them.

It gets three stars because despite that it's a really interesting read. Just managing expectations here :)

Gives a great history on the development of the outlaw biker identity, but in places it became more of a biker movie review than a comprehensive account of outlaw motorcycle club culture.

Nevertheless, I still plan on building my own chopper.

Interesting book about freedom and people who changed society. It has a good history about motorcycle club history.

While I appreciate the work of this author at times this read was very slow.
