More like a book advocating common sense rather than how to become free. If I took anything away from this read it is the fact that community is of paramount importance to Sonny Barger. Many of us don't really have community in our work places, residences, churches, etc. But Sonny has lived a life of community and he really knows how difficult it is to build and maintain. Sonny Barger knows the meaning of self sacrifice and he could teach established communities a lesson or two about service to ones fellow man. The writing style is somewhat irksome but at least he doesn't sound like a wannabe writer. Not a bad book, but if you're searching for your freedom, give this one a miss.
