I am quite sure that should I ever have the chance to hear the author speak that one of the following would occur;
1) He would be as long winded as his writing style, or
2) He might prove to be more interesting that he comes across in his writings.
The stories were fascinating, but a bit long winded in parts… often clothed in what I perceived to be some sort of self aggrandizement. I kept being reminded of the Hemingway followers who go to the running of the bulls, grow a beard and end up trying to look like Ol’ Papa H himself.
I think the best thing I can say is that I did not hate the book… for a topic I find fascinating… I only liked it enough.
