I've read The Jew of Linz - it's a good book but not 100% convincing. But Wittgenstein was a strange character who didn't talk about his youth much anyway. Bertrand Russel really admired him as a philosopher, but found him difficult to deal with as an individual.

"A boy who snitches on his comrades practises treason and thus betrays a mentality which . . . is exactly the equivalent of treason to one's country. Such a boy can by no means be regarded as a good, decent child . . . more than once, a little informer has grown up to be a big scoundrel."

There's a warning. :)
