Well written and researched but this book did not tell me anything about Curtis Warren that I couldn’t find on Wikipedia.

Couldn’t put this down. It is clear that as a youth he had a strong desire rsie become successful and rise above the poverty and desperation that surrounded him in Toxteth, it just a shame that he did not use his ability and brains for something more productive.
