About the Author

PAUL TEUTUL JR was just 27 when American Chopper: Jet Bike premiered on the Discovery Channel, featuring “Paulie” and his father, Paul Sr., building a custom chopper for 2002's Laconia Bike Week. Part of Bike Weekend, the one-off special and the intrinsic family dynamics so captivated audiences that a full series following the Teutuls and their business, Orange County Choppers, soon followed in 2003. Six years of family ups and downs ensued, culminating in 2009 with Senior firing Junior, who waited out his one-year non-compete clause before establishing his own business, Paul Jr. Designs. Today, Paul Jr. Designs continues to thrive, producing custom bikes for a variety of individual and corporate clients. There have been TV commercials and personal appearances since 2012 as well, but the most important development in Paul's life occurred when his wife, Rachael, gave birth to their son Hudson Seven Teutul in February 2015.

The Build is Paul Teutul's side of the story of what really went on behind the scenes at American Chopper and in his personal life. As Paul reveals his real life story of what happened before American Chopper came to be, you will soon realize that not everything was all peachy between Paul and his Father. It takes everything to crumble around Paul before he is able to be the man that he should be, with a future that looks brighter every day!! I have to admit that I picked this book solely due to the fact that Paul was American Chopper. I wasn't expecting this story that changed how I viewed him from now on, I have way more respect for him now than for his father after reading what Paul Sr. did to get him fired from the shop. I absolutely loved the fact that Paul was able to come back from that in a bigger way than anyone saw coming and I can't wait to see what is in store for him next! Thank You to Paul Teutul Jr. for sharing your side of the story!! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging For Books!
