There have been no shortage of biographies of Stan Lee since his death in 2018; as Adrian Mackinder here notes, the man's ego and influence mean there's plenty of source material. Mackinder tries to make his stand out by putting Lee's life and work in a broader cultural context.

The result is a breezy, informative little book covers the major events of Lee's life, the broad sweep of Marvel's successes and failures, and the socio-cultural-economic waves that carried them both along. Mackinder does a good job of sifting the various controversies (if he often fails to draw a conclusion, he at least lays out the parties' cases and identifies any obvious untruths) and explaining why Lee and Marvel were so successful.

Stan Lee: How Marvel Changed the World is good little precis, written in an open, informed and light manner that should exclude no one. How fitting. ( )
