really liked it
Read from August 02 to 07, 2011

Well-researched, well-written (reads like a novel)... very surprising coming from a Hoover Institute guy.

Garbles a few facets of Trotsky's thought and misrepresents Lenin, but Patenaude's intentions are honest.

There hasn't been a better account of the Old Man's final years, "The Prophet Outcast" included.
