That said, what does exist at the core of Dave Nichols' message is worth saying, and, sure, worth repeating. He makes strong points about the incredible wimpiness modern life has engendered in men, and how values that once upheld society have eroded to the point that they're considered useless. Shooting this message through the lens of the biker world and the codes of conduct in motorcycle clubs is sometimes a stretch, but in doing so he does manage to make a point, in many cases making you laugh out loud in agreement when he does so.
This isn't a true insider's view of the One Percenter world - getting that would take a hell of a lot more effort than buying a book - but it draws out enough life lessons from a sector of society most people consider undesirable to prove that bikers and the old-school, hard-core types that are literally dying off these days have a lot more to offer than folks these days give them credit for.
The obvious aside, its plainly a great insight on how to be a better human being while remaining genuine to yourself, kinda like Anton Lavey had it back in 1966.. lol
Different era, different title I guess.
Bottom line - I loved it
