Overview

The New York Times bestselling self-portrait of a flawed but determined Jesse James: rebel, outlaw, gearhead, artist, entrepreneur, lost son, and fiercely committed father.

Jesse James is everything you imagined him to be—and more than you ever expected.

He has led a violent life. He’s survived lower depths, faced harder times, and beaten down more private demons than most—and lived to tell his story with honesty, introspection, and humility. He’s tough as nails and riding hard through life, with plenty of wisdom to share about taking a hit and coming back up. In American Outlaw, Jesse reveals all: from his volatile upbringing and troubled relationship with his father to his wild days of car thieving and juvenile detention; from knocking heads as a rock ’n’ roll bodyguard to his destructive drinking and barroom brawling; from building an empire from the ground up to marriages marked with both happiness and gut-wrenching pain; from living inside the hottest level of paparazzi hell to rehab and making peace with his past.

I am on team sandra. But he takes full ownership of what he did. I used to think they had the great love story. But it wasnt meant to be. I respect thst he owned up to his douchebag ways.

I just read the "AMERICAN OUTLAW" BOOK. I AM NOT A FAN OF JESSE"S HOWEVER I THOUGHT THAT THE BOOK WAS WELL WRITTEN & INTERESTING. I WAS VERY SURPRISED & GLAD THAT HE WAS VERY RESPECTFUL OF SANDRA BULLOCK. NEVER DID HE TALK NEGATIVELY OR DISCUSS ANYTHING ABOUT HER PRIVATE LIFE THAT WAS NOT ALREADY PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE. JESSE TOOK BLAME FOR ALL THAT WENT WRONG. MOST OF HIS WORDS CONFIRMED WHAT WE ALL FEEL ABOUT SANDRA & THAT SHE IS DOWN TO EARTH & THAT SHE LEADS THE SAME LIFE IN PRIVATE THAT SHE DOES IN PUBLIC. WHO KNOWS MAYBE JESSE CAN CHANGE HIS LIFE FOR THE BETTER!

Many people have come down hard on JJ. Truth is, this man became something out of nothing. You can dislike him for his indiscretions but you cannot pass judgement on the fact he has one heck of a work ethic and made plenty of sound business decisions. This book is fantastic and brings to light the true man behind all of the hype.
