Publisher's Summary

This book is Chopper's redemption. It is the real story of the man, the criminal and the prisoner, told with black humour and surprising insight. "This book is about my journey through the Australian prison system. You'll have heard a few of these stories before, but not like this. It's a step-by-step history of my twenty three years behind bars; what day to day life was really like in jail, what I did to survive and why I'll never go back. It's not a nice story. I was not a nice prisoner...
Mark "Chopper" Read is over 50 years old and has spent almost half that time in prison. He is a man who knows the Australian prison system better than any other. He knows how the definitive school of hard knocks turns juvenile delinquents into hardened criminals. How it feels to be thrust into a world of violent psychopaths and be changed, irrevocably, into the worst of their number. He also knows how it feels to pull out a man's colostomy bag (like a rope going through a barbed-wire fence). How it feels to lose your ears to a prison-issue razor blade (a gurgling sound like a little brook). How it feels to fight, maim and mutilate to stay alive. And what it means when that way of life no longer makes sense.

Another cracking story from Chopper.

Another classic book from Chopper. Even if some of it is a good yarn, it's a good yarn non the less. He might have been a psychopath, but he had superficial charm by the bucket load. Great stories and a great story teller, he had an amazing life, at least when you don't have to do the time he did. 10/10
