This is a one of the best books I have ever read about the Soviet Union. The personality of Khrushchev comes to light in this book. The down to earth of personality, the honesty, and the humor of Nikita puts a human face on an icon of history.
The book is easy to read, and I could not put it down. The only problem I see is the price of the book...ouch!
