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.

I have the original signed copy of this book.. And I think this should be a bible for bikers that want to start their own biker group or organization.
Thanks Sonny Barger
Having read this book, I will have it in my saddlebag and refer to it often as I travel the roads of America on my motorcycle. The longer the trip, the more relevant the book. The essence of the writings in this book are found in Sonny Barger's life learnings/ teachings- through hardship, hard fights with long, hard rides coursing through it all. This is about, to use his phrase, "maintaining one's own self-reliant vision."
As fate or luck would have it and two thousand miles from home, I met Sonny on the road, just weeks after having read this book. What were the odds, a few million to one? If you are searching, if you are questioning, if you are traveling, just maybe one day you will be as lucky as I was to have met the author of Freedom somewhere along your own road. He has a knowing eye. Learn from his razor sharp perceptions. Read this book and by doing so, see more clearly your own amazing self-reliant vision, the depth of your own inner strengths.

Sonny has a lot of great advice in this book, and so many others he's written. All the reader has to do is listen, and you can change your world, or make it better. Keep ridin' high and livin' free, Sonny, you have my respect!
