4.0 out of 5 stars Who says crime doesn't pay? 28 May 2008
Funny if you know how to take it. Some people don't realise that although small embellishments do make this a bit more readable. This guy knows how to shock and provides exactly what the crowd wants- plenty of blood and guts.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Legend That Is.... Chopper 4 Aug 2003
a great insight into the life of mark brandon read and the events of his career. he tells of all of those he knows in detail and also all the good and bad that happened to him during his career. this is a good read with some funny little poems at the end of each chapter. i also recommend watching the movie "Chopper" starring Eric Bana as Mark, its a good one!!

1.0 out of 5 stars booooring!!!! 17 May 2006
Another idiotic book by a small time thug playing it bigtime and in the process belitling such crime institutions as the mafia. OK I admit that if half of what he writes is true, then I wouldnt want to cross him. But he comes out in the end as a simplistic (in his world view) rightwing tough guy thinking muscle power is what makes the world go round.
