Poor biography. Redeeming quality is that it gives hope to the would-be biographer who finds himself short on primary source material. This book ably demonstrates that this absence of insightful material should not be seen as an impediment to producing a biography. Rather, the author of this slim volume shows the reader how to fill pages with interesting but largely irrelevant esoterica. We are left with an incomplete portrait of an interesting character.
