Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Keith Hancock's life was varied, successful and makes interesting reading. The book suffers from trying to tell his life yet avoiding replicating WKH's own autobiographies (proabably most interesting). Perhaps a little more historical background would help put Hancock's life in perspective. The cost is exhorbitant in UK $A50 becomes £50!!
