really liked it
bookshelves: kindle, history
Recommended for: Those wanting an even summary evaluation of TJ
Read from December 13 to 18, 2010 — I own a copy

After reading several TJ bio's I thought it might bore me to read another one. However, with Hitchen's style and vocabulary it doesn't really matter. It all sounds new again. However, this should not be your first TJ bio'--too much left out. But it's great if you have already read one of the more comprehensive, but dated bio's, this is a great overview with a more up to date perspective. Here is TJ, warts and all with no apologies.
