Uninspired but Easy to Read
on August 22, 2002
I purchased this book hoping to learn much about President Putin. Unfortunately, I did not, at least to the extent I wished. It does do a good job of bringing you thru his Life experiences, from youth to present, but it does not really show the degree of personal input I would have thought there would be from a book full of interview excerpts. I also thought there was a little lacking in the translation.
A good book for someone interested in the basics, but not for any in depth insight.
