That certainly is the best source, with chapter 2 devoted to Twain and
numerous mentions of him elsewhere.
Not to stray from things Twainian, but I can't help but note that the author
argues that modern copyright laws are "punitive" and "too restrictive" and
that "leaky" copyright laws would work better.
I also note that this book is copyrighted.
