3. It is the outstanding description of the Russian background where actions are taking place in “The Charm School” by Nelson DeMille novel. It feels not like a fiction but a real thing. As a Russian who was born and lived in cities and villages of Russia, I can authenticate this incredible dynamic description of the fictional events of this detective novel. I listened to this audiobook twice. It has become my favorite non-fiction book. Now I am interested in more books by the same author. My passion for audiobooks started with non-fiction. I listen close to 400 audioboks during past 20 years but nowadays you would find me listening to Nelson DeMille novels.

It is a dry description of a miserable life in North Korea. Even life in the Soviet Union where I lived until year 1974, could be considered quite an easy existence comparing it to North Korea everyday life. Such description kills any curiosity of visiting this land. One could only feel sorry for North Koreans...

I listened to ALL 4 parts of this engaging narrative that was written by a master speech writer, analyst and a politician. I learn more than I expected from a book about military matters. It contains history, politics and drama of human relationships within the Government, Governmental teams, and human family. It is written by an outstanding member of our government. It is the most informative book on the matters of War and Peace in our Times. It might become a text book for our future leaders: politicians and military. It could be downgraded only by dogmatic democrats. Any mature reader of this book would be proud to have Donald Rumsfeld caliber intellect in our government.
Story about two intellects working in American Government. Very educational. History about Russian-American relationships through the eyes of US dedicated officials. Gives retrospective and prospective views, as well as the food for thoughts about politics. The book is for history lovers.

Provides in depth analysis of relationships of former superpowers and new powers that sprung on world stage. Interesting predictions. Only time will tell how accurate these predictions are...
