"Apart from Irish whiskey, good cigars, Pontiac motor cars, and a pistol grip baby .410 shotgun with solid load shells, what I love the most is kidnapping smartarse gangsters and taking their money. To the human filth I have bashed, belted, iron barred, axed, shot, stabbed, knee capped, set on fire and driven to their graves, I can only quote from the motto of the French Foreign Legion, 'Je Ne Regrette Rien'... I REGRET NOTHING."

Mark Brandon "Chopper" Read is the son of a strict Seventh Day Adventist mother and a shell-shocked soldier who slept with a loaded gun at his side. Bullied at school, he grew up dreaming of revenge, determined to be the toughest and hardest of them all. He became a criminal legend who terrorised drug dealers, pimps, thieves and armed robbers on the streets and in jail – but boasts he never hurt an innocent member of the public.

This first volume of Chopper's memoirs, written from inside jail, tells the story of his early life of crime – from streetfighter to standover man, gunman to long-term prisoner. Chopper: From the Inside is laced with his trademark brutal humour, and gives us a gripping insight into Australia's underworld.
