Jesse James is mugging hard for the cover of his new memoir American Outlaw.

The biker bad boy's book will cover everything from his marriages, fatherhood, volatile upbringing and professional accomplishments.

James tells People:

    "I've lived a pretty crazy life. My life has been defined by many things and not just the events of the last year. I just wanted [the memoir] to be a good story, a page-turner and hopefully people will see it as that."

Jesse, who's currently engaged to Kat Von D, adds, "People claim to know everything about me, when they actually know nothing. But once you read this, you will know everything – the whole story, right here."
