Author(s): Mark Brandon Read
Mark Brandon 'Chopper' Read was released from Pentridge Prison in 1991 and became a bestseller with his autobiography Chopper: From the Inside. Chopper's adventures, however, were far from over. The smart money said that Chopper would be the first to go in any underworld war but the smart money was wrong. He vowed to outlive his enemies and write their epitaphs and he did so, predicting who would be killed long before the assassins' guns were loaded. Only Chopper would live to tell the tale, with Last Man Standing the final instalment of his series of funny, yet often brutal memoirs.
