      Avoid the Keneally book like the plague.

      Swanberg's old "Sickles the Incredible" is one of my favorite bios, and it
      holds up pretty well (well enough for Keneally to cite it about 1,000
      times).

      That's what I was thinking when I wrote the original reply. I have
      seen a bio of Dan in the local discount bookstore, but keep avoiding
      it. Not sure I could take a whole book about him. :-).
