This was a pretty good biography. I mean, there were a few vocabulary choices that were a bit odd and a couple of times I felt were just there to show off. I also thought that in the introduction and legacy chapters were a bit overdone in the "I'm rescuing Warren from obscurity"n bit.

Really, very little is known for sure about Warren's early life so as with other biographies and articles, this book makes some assumptions about what he did. I have to say that this author did less speculating then some authors, for which I was grateful.

This is a pretty solid biography
