    The Real Chopper
    The Real Chopper
    The Man Behind the Legend, Inside and Out
    Criminal, murderer, raconteur, author . . . mythmaker? Mark Brandon 'Chopper' Read is undoubtedly Australia's best - known criminal. Author of many bestselling books about the underworld he inhabited, and subject of a smash - hit film, his story has become part of the country's 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 Read's life, made him famous but then refused to let him go. From Read's religious upbringing and youthful escapades to his 23 years in jail and later careers in the spotlight, Shand delves into Read's life to reveal the truth for the first time. With unparalleled access to lovers, friends and enemies, Shand learns that 'Uncle Chop Chop', Australia's favourite stand - over man, was much more than the 'earless monster' he created.
