What rating would you give it?
DNF, so no star rating this time

What did you think of the book?

I didn’t know what to expect with this book. It certainly wasn’t what I got. It’s not that I didn’t like it. I just wasn’t very interested in the content matter. Some of it was rather amusing and frank in its opinions, even enlightening at times (since there was a lot I didn’t know about this guy and I’m sure most readers wouldn’t know either) but mostly I was just bored. I think it’s because I’m not particularly a fan of biographies and such unless they’re done differently from the rest.

For that reason, I won’t give a star rating, since I didn’t finished reading it.

Would you recommend this book?

Ehh, since I stopped halfway, I won’t say. I think it’s an important piece and would probably do very well at university as a reference or study text. I might recommend it only if someone asked.
