The author integrated two big topics (title topic and autism) into one book, and ends up in a confusing, disappointing mediocrity and at times a confusing and wandering sermon. Both of his topics have great merit, each deserved the author's separate attention (in two books) and he seems to have the capability to deliver, if within a singular focus. Unfortunately too much of that focus seems to be going to himself.
The biographer and his subject are a superb match, as is the choice of the narrator. I had no idea that Jack London did so much with his life across a spectrum of so many different contexts of bold and varied adventures and daunting personal challenges. I'm equally intrigued how today's world so parallels as to the need for others to take the baton of his "worker passions." Here's content for many fine novels that amazingly was actually compressed into one formidable life.
