Unauthorised biography of Ray!

I stumbled across this new, strangely titled book. The title suggests something quite salacious, a suggestion supported by the strapline "the only UNAUTHORISED biography".

But given that Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 is often read as a statement against censorship, maybe this biography has hit upon an appropriate title, even for a non-salacious volume.

I haven't read the book yet, but being a completist I couldn't help but order a copy. I fear the worst, however, since it is published by iUniverse.com, which appears to be a high-tech vanity press.
