Holy thunder****s, Batman. One of the most brutal biographies I've read (not that it couldn't happen to a nicer guy).
Some of what I've read in there would probably get him into the semis in the Infamous battle, and beat a few match-fixers along the way.
Btw, anyone know other biographies/accounts out there with seriously controversial content? Cricket dirt is more addictive than I thought.
Brett Hutchins's bio on The Don is probably the ultimate revisionist western.
By the way, I own a book by McKinstry called simply "Boycs" (which, looking at his Wiki bibliography, I suspect the book you've just finished is a resprayed version of) and I thought it fairly even handed.
Although, with all respect to the great man, what seems "even handed" as an assessment for him might be a complete hatchet job for less singular personalities.
