Ralph Winter was endlessly fascinating, but this is not the best book to get an understanding of his life. This is an academic work converted into a book. It only focuses on the earlier years of his life, up until 1976. So much of his substantial work was done after that. Also, it has the trappings of a doctoral dissertation rather than a biography. A much more helpful book on his life would be that by Harold Fickett, The Story of Ralph Winter. Still, if you are a serious student of Ralph Winter’s work, here is a resource.
