Excellent. I learned the hard way after suffering through a particularly bad biography of Mandela, that an interesting subject matter doesn't instantly equate to an interesting read. No such complaints here, the author takes the excellent source material and has produced a book that reads like a fantastic soap opera - and I completely mean this in a complimentary way. Also, loved the footnotes - never thought I'd say that, but they're great - sometimes funny, but always loaded with additional information that adds to the general fantastic nature of the book. Would highly recommend this to anyone even remotely interested in history.
