Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling self-portrait of a flawed but determined Jesse James: rebel, outlaw, gearhead, artist, entrepreneur, lost son, and fiercely committed father.

Jesse James is everything you imagined him to be—and more than you ever expected.

He has led a violent life. He’s survived lower depths, faced harder times, and beaten down more private demons than most—and lived to tell his story with honesty, introspection, and humility. He’s tough as nails and riding hard through life, with plenty of wisdom to share about taking a hit and coming back up. In American Outlaw, Jesse reveals all: from his volatile upbringing and troubled relationship with his father to his wild days of car thieving and juvenile detention; from knocking heads as a rock ’n’ roll bodyguard to his destructive drinking and barroom brawling; from building an empire from the ground up to marriages marked with both happiness and gut-wrenching pain; from living inside the hottest level of paparazzi hell to rehab and making peace with his past.

American Outlaw

I heard Jesse talking about his life on an interview with Howard Stern and I knew I had to get this book. I bought it the same day and had a hard tome putting it down to do my daily tasks. Jesse really takes a hard look at himself and shares a lot of family "dirt" which really gives the readers a better understanding of where he came from. It takes a real man to admit he has made mistakes and Jesse James did that in this book. Good read!

Jesse James, still human

Go ahead, continue to hate this man for cheating on Sandra. Pretend like he is the first and only person to cheat. This autobiography shows you that even though one moment defined him as a tattooed biker that cheated on America's Sweetheart, he is still a very caring man who faced many demons from childhood to present. Bottom line is that no one is perfect in their own way. I commend Jesse for caring for his kids and those less fortunate and I still see him as a master of his craft. Now listen, it has been a good solid 2+ years since I took the time to read a book and I didn't want to put this one down, read it in 2 days. Worth it! I wish nothing but the best for Sandra and Jesse. Hope the healing continues for them both and everyone involved.

Great book

Ive been a fan of jesses work since I used to read motorcycle magazines in the late 90's early 2000's. Always thought he was an interesting person as well as a fabricator.
couldn't keep my hands off this book, although I feel as if the life before west coast choppers was very detailed and after that it went by fast, very quick small stories....there is no detail of why he closed the shop or why he moved to Texas or how he met kat Von d but all in all it tells a very hard struggle and upbringing, awsome stories and the way the man sees life though his eyes, Wish the book would have never ended though.
Seriously recommend it...
