The last thing this book should be called is a biography.
Leslie Jones has a degree in Mythology but has no idea what the word biography means. She talks about JRR Tolkien's life almost as an aside to her self imagined analysis of the supposed meaning of every event in the books of Tolkien.
If you want to find out about the man, JRR Tolkien, find another book.
