I wish this book felt less like propaganda. I love Kazakhstan because my children were born there, and I really wanted to learn more about their birth country. I liked much of the book, but I wasn't sure if it was 100% representative of the country.

Covers much of the same ground in 'Apples are from Kazakhstan' but also with several chapters that will provide most readers with new information and perspective. I have previously read this author's biography on Nixon and found him quite readable. The primary drawback is the hagiographic treatment of Kazakhstan!s president. Most western readers will admit that The President has done many things for the benefit of Kazakhstan but will none the less feel somewhat uncomfortable with the continued adulation. Still, worth the read.
