A Genius? A Scientist? A Sociopath? Known to millions as the "Birdman" of Alcatraz... Was he the earnest, warm-hearted "bird doctor" and writer of two books, as portrayed by Burt Lancaster in 1962? Or was he a far more flamboyant and diabolical double-murderer, whose event-filled, tragicomic life converted a 12 year conviction into a 54 year death sentence?'Meticulously researched, with never-before-published prison reports and Stroud's own writings, with quotes from prisoners, officers, psychologists, and avian psychologists, Birdman explodes the myths surrounding Robert Stroud.
