Biography focusing on a less well-known part of Samuel Clemens's life. The anecdotes and excerpts from Twain's writings are fun, funny, informative, educational. Unfortunately, the author's writing style is nothing to get excited about. Inaccurately classified in some sources as a business book.

Although I’m not sure how far dabbling will get you, I’ve enjoyed working on biographies, business books, newspaper stories, business articles, that all-consuming yet maddeningly elusive arena of fiction, and poetry.

And now my wife and I are Vermont farmers to boot, with a sugar bu
