Read in April, 2012 — I own a copy, read count: 1

I got exactly what I wanted out of this book -- the cold hard facts. Each chapter has a date and a location, and the dates get closer to 1989 as the book goes on. It mainly deals with the Central & Eastern European countries in the Soviet Empire and a little about Afghanistan. Wouldn't have minded more about domestic Soviet Union stuff, but there was enough to understand the context of the revolutions during the 1980's and the USSR's involvement (or lack thereof). Great book!
