Better than some books I've read on the subject, worse than others...some of the "facts" in this book were somewhat misleading especially in regards to Stalin's sex life. The man was an ascetic and paranoid hermit who lived in a closed masculine world of his own design. His romantic adventures as portrayed here are highly questionable.
