Book: Jack London -- A Biography by Daniel Dyer

The biography describes a very charismatic, focused, and adventure seeking London. In a short life of 41 years, London accomplished what borders on a story plot for a novel. From a disadvantaged dysfunctional childhood and an eighth grade education, London worked as a boat deckhand, explored for gold in the Klondike, toured the Pacific on a sail boat, went on speaking tours, developed a working cattle ranch and in his spare time wrote extensively including fiction that has not been out of print for 100 years.

Don't want to read a whole book.... Wikipedia provides a good abbreviated bio of Jack London.
