In the early 1990s, Maurice “Mom” Boucher and his fellow Montreal Hells Angels, reputedly the most ruthless and vicious bikers in the world, subdued all comers except the tough-as-nails members of the Rock Machine. Founded by Salvatore Cazzetta, an ex-friend of Boucher, the Rock Machine had every intention of standing up against the Hells Angels. Seven years of bloody conflict, which left over 160 people dead and countless injured, was the result. Heavily outnumbered, the Rock Machine appealed to the worldwide Bandidos Motorcycle Club, who rivaled the Hells Angels in terms of membership and strength. In January 2000, the Rock Machine ceased to exist and became a probationary Bandidos chapter – the first to be established on Canadian soil. Biker Edward Winterhalder was assigned by the Bandidos to coordinate the transition. Although the stage had been set for an end to the biker war and a positive outcome for all, it was anything but. Starting with the arrest and unsuccessful deportation proceedings of Winterhalder by the Canadian authorities, more intrigue, assassinations, and double-crosses, Winterhalder found himself in a situation even he found impossible to control. In The Assimilation, Winterhalder – in collaboration with author Wil De Clercq – recalls his life and times as an outlaw biker; his personal involvement in the creation of the Quebec Bandidos; his friendship with the key players who made it happen; and his eventual disillusionment with, and exit from, the Bandidos Nation.

The book was ok. Definately well-written, but the author seems to toot his own horn about how great he thinks he is too much.
This would probably have been more interesting if I lived in Canada, but since I don't (never have and most likely never will) I think I had trouble identifying with the Canadian biker scene. Don't get me wrong, there were interesting tidbits and references to things I remember hearing in the news, but the repeated references to newspaper articles and such got a bit tedious.
On another note, the author complains that he was delt a low blow by his status being changed from 'out in good standings' to 'out in bad standings' after he was out, but then at the end of the book posts a list of club locations and number of people in each charter, which is a big MC no-no. So what was that?...the author taking a last jab at his former club because he's pissed at them for shunning him, or an example of behavior that pissed off his fromer club and got him labeled "out in bad standings"? I don't know and can't venture a guess, but it makes me wonder.

This is another book written to favor the author as the hero of the story, yet it contains good insights into the biker world.

This book is not bad at all and gives a firsthand account of one of the stranger chapters in omg history. I just happen to have already read this same account at the beginning of Winterhalder's excellent memoir Out In Bad Standing. My advice is to read that book.

If you've read The Road to Hell: How the Biker Gangs are Conquering Canada you will know the story Ed tells. This is a book that comes from one of the losers in the battle for Canada's riches. According to Ed, the Bandidos tried to be a part of the quest for a Charter in Canada, but lost their bid to the Hell's Angels. The truth of the matter is; The Rock Machine split between the two clubs.
Ed, or somebody , did a good job of writing this book. I found it easy to read

If you read Out In Bad Standing then you have already read this one

This is an extremely boring book written by a disgruntled biker. Lot of information and documentation, for sure, but very boring stuff. The author spends a lot of his time (and the reader's) justifying his deeds and whining about club officers. Avoid purchasing this book unless you already have read everything else on this topic and are ready to cope with whining and minutiae.

I have read a ton of Biker Books beginning with Hells Angels: Strange and Terrible Saga" by Hunter S. Thompson, and the "Freewheeling Frank" by Frank Reynolds, and "Bike Rider" by Danny Lions as well as several of Ralph "Sonny" Barger's Books and probably about ten other books on different Motorcycle Clubs. This was one of the slower reads and I was kind of disappointed...
I enjoyed reading this book. It was a interesting look inside the biker world of the Banditos MC. I would recommend this Title to anyone wanting to read up on the MC world.
