Not the insight I had hoped for but informative

written as what you might find on a newspaper, factual narrative of his life from an editorial point of view, if you are looking for more, it is not there. Great as a short narrative to listen on the road, it will leave you hungry for something more substantial about the writer himself.

Succinct

Basic and to the point. Not quite everything you want to know but I think that's the point, definitely enough to get on with.
