it was ok
bookshelves: economics-and-politics

The book is extremely biased against Putin. Most of the material used to write the book was harvested from the Economist magazine and Financial Times newspapers-sister publications I must say-no real difference between the two. There nothing new in the book and that is disappointing given that Edward Lukas claims at being a former diplomat. I was expecting some inside track information that most of us (the public) don’t have easy access.
The author could not hide his resentment of Russia and Putin in particular. The good news is that I only bought the book because it was on sale!
No regrets it costs me next to nothing!
