Not bad - but not what I'd hoped
I'm a fan of American Chopper - I ride motorcycles, I'm passionate about motorcycles. This book provides many insights into the background of the Teutul family. I'm sure that anyone knows that what you see on a TV show is highly edited, scenes are selected out of many shot, orders of things altered, commentary from the people involved recorded later. As a result, the people you see on TV are not exactly what you think they would be. I doubt that Mikey is as incompetent as you might think - I doubt that Junior is as late as often as you might think and I doubt that Senior raves about nothing for hours on end for no reason. I do know that they are a family and that family dynamics are complex.
If you're a fan of the show - this book deserves your attention, it completes some of the puzzle behind the scenes.
A couple of things that could be improved - some of the words don't appear to be in character with the person who supposedly wrote them.
Second, having a book about the people in question read by someone else, strikes me as odd. I do know that the Teutuls are busy people - but I would think they might have found some time to read the book about their lives. Just a thought.
