Publisher Description

There are few men who are as quintessentially American as Sonny Barger. He is patriotic—a veteran who loves his country. He is independent—choosing his own path on his motorcycle, living life on his own terms. He is outspoken—he has boldly criticized injustices in American law and society despite the backlash this has evoked from the establishment. Yet the element that he finds most important, most sacred, most American, is freedom.

In Freedom, Sonny articulates many of the principles he employs in his own life. Whether he is regarded as a leader, a rebel, a revolutionary, a criminal, or a soldier, Sonny's outlook has been influenced not just by school but by the military, prison, and his experiences riding with the world's most notorious motorcycle club. It was on these various journeys that he learned the lessons that are most important in his life and the qualities he respects when he sees them in others:

Customize Yourself; Originals Don't Come Off an Assembly Line

Temper the Steel to Forge a Strong Blade

Treat Me Good, I'll Treat You Better; Treat Me Bad, I'll Treat You Worse

Presented in the form of fifty credos, this book gives Sonny Barger's perspective on how to live a life that embodies the most fundamental of American virtues: freedom.

Great book

I believe this is a great book from a man that I believe represents what "America" is. Sonny for president!!!!

Sonny shares a lifetime of "take aways" from experiences good and bad in a positive and productive perspective. A well thought out expression of thoughts. I felt as though Sonny was having a personal conversation with me, a like minded freedom loving person. If you are like me, you will profit on so many levels from reading this book. An abundance of wisdom and heart from a great freedom loving American. Had Sonny lived 239 years ago, he would have surely been one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. And our Government knows it.

Wisdom comes from the wise

There are few people who have ridden their bike around the block more than Sonny, and in doing so he has garnered the wisdom of a modern day Sun Tzu.

Sonny offers sage advice on managing yourself, leadership, setting an example and on freedom.

This is a great read.
