I have also read "Dracula: Prince of Many Faces".  I thought that book was an interesting book, but not a great book.  I am looking for another biography of him to read.

One interesting fact about that book: "Dracula: Prince of Many Faces"  is that the one author of that book Radu Florescu, he is a generational decsendant of the family that opposed and diposed Vlad Dracula, and so he can draw from generational information from his family that tried and ultimately diposed "Vlad The Impaler". So if anyone would have intimate details, he would be the one who would know!!
