Before reading this book, I was not terribly familiar with William F. Buckley. Sure, I had heard of him, but I did not really know much about him. Jeremy Lott did an excellent job with this biographical book, making me want to learn more about a man that I never knew I never knew. Suddenly, I want to read Buckley's books, I want to watch clips of his shows, and I want to learn a whole lot more about Communism.
I find most biographies to be a bit stale, but such was not the case with Lott's book. This is part of the Christian Encounters series by Thomas Nelson Publishers, and I can only hope that the other books in the series come alive as well as this one did. It read almost as well as a novel, literally playing like a movie in my mind. I am sure this is partly due to the colorful nature of Buckley's character, but I believe there is also praise due to the writing.
I would certainly recommend this book to anyone looking to learn more about Buckley, to anyone interested in learning about historical figures, particularly during the Cold War era.
