Not very, in my opinion, although Hiney's journalist friends reviewed it well. Lots of conjecture wrapped up as fact, not much new that I can see
(certainly nothing of note about the almost unknown early life), and quite a few actual errors. MacShane's may be dry and it has its faults, but I rate it higher.

Cheers Chris
