An excellent book by an eminently gifted author, heavy on observation and analysis and totally believable. Strongly recommended. ( )

An interesting history lesson in the socio-political climate of post-USSR Russia and how it led to Putin in power, and lessons on how the Western powers failed to respond to the threat.

Books of this type are often unbearably dry and impenetrable; Kasparov however has an easy style that makes it much more readable than it might have been. If the topic interests you, but you're not sure you can manage to get through 267 pages of it, you may be pleasantly surprised. ( )

Very interesting read. I didn't know much about Putin's Russia before this book. This book helped give me some perspective, and it made me want to research the topic further. ( )

A clear warning about the dangers implicit in trustiing Putin. A wake up call to western leaders to stick to the democratic credentials. However, Kasparov is angry. He appeared to give blind acceptance to the American way without questioning that that system too has its flaws. ( )
