Reviewed in Australia on 4 September 2020
Ian Jones tells a great story, and this an immensely readable and enjoyable work of biography. However its now 25 years old and many of the central claims made in it are now regarded as fanciful, particularly the claims that Kelly was a political rather than criminal figure, that he and his family turned to crime becasue they were persecuted and hounded by police, and that the planned police massacre at Glenrowan was about establishing a Republic of NE Victoria. Close scrutiny of the historical record shows these claims to be unfounded.

So read and enjoy with caution!
