Author of many bestselling books about the underworld he inhabited, and subject of a smash-hit film, his story has become part of the countrys culture. And Read certainly knew how to spin a yarn.Adam Shand – bestselling author of Big Shots: Carl Williams and the Gangland Murders – disentangles the persona of Chopper from Mark Read, the man. Chopper took over Reads life, made him famous but then refused to let him go.From Reads religious upbringing and youthful escapades to his 23 years in jail and later careers in the spotlight, Shand delves into Reads life to reveal the truth for the first time. With unparalleled access to lovers, friends and enemies, Shand learns that Uncle Chop Chop, Australias favourite stand-over man, was much more than the earless monster he created.
