Recommends it for: Americans with an Intermediate to Advanced knowledge of Russian
I'm still about halfway through reading this book. It's a bit of an undertaking and I can't recommend it to anyone who doesn't already speak at least some Russian, but it'd be tremendously helpful to any American who's trying to get over the hump of speaking Russian idomatically.

Above all, this book gives some historical and cultural context to spoken and written Russian. Idioms, proverbs, turns of phrase and things that just don't make sense to a non-native speaker are all dissected and analyze
