Joe ConasonAny writer who employs the word "genius" in the title of a biography—especially the biography of someone who is unknown to the broad public—is accepting a dare to prove that the subject deserves it. As for A Kind of Genius, the title Sam Roberts uses for his life of Herb Sturz, it not only demands proof but provokes other questions. Exactly what kind of genius is this man? Who is he, anyway? And why should we care? Roberts answers those challenges in full, well before the conclusion of this engaging book.
