I liked this, quite a lot, and have listened so some chapters a number of times. Yes, she's a journalist, and there are a number of personal stories, but that makes it interesting. The story of Gary Kasparov's abortive attempt to run, is sad, and emblematic of what's happened.
I like it, though a few of her Russian accents are a tad over-the-top.... But how else is she going to handle it?
It's sad...unremittingly tragic.
I thought some of the other reviewers were unnecessarily tough on this book. It's a Point-of-View.....and doesn't profess to be anything else....
This is an unusual course in that there are two professors. At times it's a tad confusing because their voices are pretty similiar so it's sometimes confusing to know who one is listening to, and since they have different perspectives it's important to know.
Yes, but I'd like the written part that usually accompanies these.
It's a course!
