You mentioned exactly why it is junk.  It is sold as NONFICTION but it is a piece of fiction.  There are no footnotes, no reference , nothing.  It continues thoughout the book to tell readers what Booth was thinking .  Gee I didn't know anyone had access to Booth's mind . 

I just find it sad that a very readable book like American Brutus that is totally researched with primary sources and footnotes up the kazoo that you don't have to read unless you want to is being over looked by a work of fiction.  It was a fast read, it read like a movie script which I am sure it was meant to be .
