Experienced epiphanies while reading this book, way back when I was in high school studying for A-levels' History. Should be read by students interested in Russian studies, the Cold War, Revolution, or history lovers in general, because this book will improve your understanding of historical forces and human nature.
This is the book that marked my deep involvement with History! :)
