He was a tyrant? I looked up his biography on Wilson Web and other places, but found nothing that suggest that he was tyrant. Maybe it's just political?

The article at Wikipedia didn't suggest that he was, either -- controversial, yes, and possibly polarizing, but not necessarily a tyrant. My guess is that the book is probably politically slanted, but without seeing the whole list (or the criteria that is laid out in the book) I think it would be hard to tell.

Anyway. Still loving the word kerfuffle.
