This is a very interesting book. After all, violence is an interesting subject. As the title suggests, Mr. Zito has dispensed plenty of street justice. He is a Hell's Angel and a martial-arts expert. I'd give the book five stars, but I took one off becasue I don't find Mr. Zito to be likable. I also took off a star for two too many nipples in the cover photo. I'd call him a boastful thug, but I wouldn't want to give him a reason to come after me.
Chuck Zito is a long time Hells Angel, bodyguard to celebrities and an actor who plays tough guy roles. The content in this is more or less Zito talking about his love of motorcycles, boxing, martial arts, life in the Hells Angels, his work as a bodyguard to various celebrities and his stint in prison, including a humorous recollection of being detained in a Japanese prison while awaiting extradition to face charges back in the states. Besides that LOTS of recollections of street and bar fights. ...more

Not bad. The machismo factor really appealed to my inner tough guy.
This was a quick and easy read-and endlessly fascinating. Mr. Zito has lead a varied, interesting and exciting life (at times too exciting). He's a no bullshit kind of guy who is who he is and makes no apologies (nor should he). As one of my favorite characters from HBO's Oz, I was thrilled to get to know this man a little better, and I'm glad I read his memoir.
Chuck Zito - He beats people up.
Okay, there's more to his story than that, but in essence that's what he does. He beats people up. The book chronicles his life from a child in Brooklyn to his rise in the ranks of the Hell's Angels and his career as a bodyguard for movie stars. Along the way he beats people up.

Chuck Zito is who he is, and I found this to be one of the best autobiographies I've read in sometime, simply because he doesn't try and color his life or actions, He just gives a straightforward and highly interesting account of his life. Highly reccomended.
This is one of the best books I have read in a while. Autobiography of a Chuck Zito, Hells Angel, bodyguard, former boxer and all around rough neck. Tales of going to prison, growing up in a rough neighborhood and beating up Jean-Claude Van Damme.

If you like true life crime, motorcycles, hardships, and sacrifices this book is for you! I would not have thought this book was as good as it was by the cover.
Wonderful autobiography. If you like Chuck Zito, or enjoy reading about motorcycles, or motorcycle clubs, or the hells angels, you'll really enjoy this book.

I met Chuck at a horror convention in New Jersey in October, so I thought I'd grab his book. Great guy and so far the book is good too.
Jeremy Burtt
Not many that embody that old school sense of honor that he captured.
I enjoyed his story, but not necessarily his ego.
Awesome read. Pick it up.

“One other note on this same subject. Think about it logically. If the trafficking of methamphetamine and other narcotics is such a spectacularly efficient and profitable business endeavor for the Hells Angels ... if we’re moving hundreds of millions of dollars of this shit all over the world . . . then why are so many of our members dead fucking broke?” 0 likes
