“Gary Chappell writes his life, himself, his family, his cabin, and motorcycle life, with generosity, both to people and to language, with marvelously rich poems. A poet like Gary creating his own new world with his own imagination and words is always a pleasure. Make it new and Chappell does.” – Don Kerr, author
“In Full Throttle, Gary Chappell takes us on a bike ride through his life, memories, places, peak experiences, loves and losses. It’s a good ride on a good road on a good bike.” – David Carpenter, author
“Gary unflinchingly explores road-trip therapy, growing up, growing older, retiring, and all of life’s miracles that transpire along the way – love, sex, rock ‘n’ roll and figuring out a guy’s true passions and life’s purposes. I really related to the book – in my eyes, it stands out from a lot of the less passionate poetry books that have come out – it tells the story of one great man’s colourful life and makes readers crave more from this articulate writer.” – Wes Funk, author & novelist
