Meyers has an animus against Wilson. I assume he has an animus against all of the many famous people about whom he writes biographies. Be forewarned! This is a sick man.

Learn all about Wilson's foot fetish, the women he bedded, and the alcohol he consumed. Appreciate such sterling similes as "Wilson had an empirical, rationalistic mind, ready, like a ship with her steam up, to set out at once on the sea of thought." Wait for the paperback, and read it quickly

A great introduction for those unfamilliar with Wilson. This is a highly personal look at this complicated, sometimes unlikeable man. Wilson was the most well read man of the 20th century and one of the most honest observers of communism from a mid to far left point of view.
