Such a great book! I got him to autograph mine when I bought it, anyway it's a great read, full of values, and family committment you may not expect to find in this particular genre. Page after page of suspense, and intrigue. I loved it.
Street Justice is the autobiography of a man named Chuck Zito. He was born in the Bronx,lived in Brooklyn then New Rochelle, New York. He learned at an early age that life could be unfair so you have to learn to take care of yourself. His first encounter involved a bully when he was very young. Chuck then became interested in boxing finding out that his father was a boxer during the depression. Along the way, he earned several black belts in various martial arts. He never backed away from a fight; I admired that as well as how open and honest he could be even to his enemy. Motorcycles caught his eye in his late teens and he met a member of the Hell's Angels; soon he got a hog and became a member. Most of his adult life he acted as bodyguard to a number of stars and famous people, relating snippets of their interactions. But this is not a tell-all book about any famous star or stars. I enjoyed it since I grew up in B'klyn and could relate to some of his experiences.
Chuck Zito is a real man's man. His story is a really good example of some one who stands up for his beliefs no matter the consequences. That's something I admire and, in some ways, I wish I was more like him.
Good book. Chuck is a true American legend. A man who stands up for what he believes in without fear. With that said I do believe some stories are a bit embellished. Not that they didn't happen I just wonder if it happened just as he says, but hey sometimes just bending the truth a tiny bit can help sell a few more book copies and I can't fault him for that. If your looking for a "biker" book then this may not be what your looking for, but if you want to read about a real New York badass who made something out of nothing then this is a Good read defiantly worth checking it out.
