Jennifer Sugar: “I think the most surprising thing was the many facets of John’s character. I suspected that there had to be more to him than what had been shown before, but we showed everything — the good, the bad, and the sometimes very ugly, but the result is that John was simply a human being, just like you and I, and we felt that was the central theme.”
Jill C. Nelson: “I believe that our book reveals John as the complicated and conflicted person that he was, and because of the many contradictions that typify his life, John’s story makes for a fascinating read. His is truly a tragic tale.”
