In a world where Russia is experiencing never-before-seen economic success coupled with political anger and resentment at corrupt government actions, it is worthwhile to look at the man who is at the forefront of it all. Vladimir Putin, claimed as a savior by some and a usurper by others, has had a fascinating journey to the top of one of Europe's most powerful nations. Gessen's research into how Putin came to lead Russia is perfectly detailed, and Putin's story is incredible. For anyone interested in post-USSR Russia, or modern Russian politics, this book is a great choice.
