Pedantic and boring, this was difficult to continue to read. I bought the book thinking it would shed light on the personality of Putin.

The cover review notes "After reading this book, one will wonder why we cannot view Russia in turn as a partner and a friend, especially at a time when our country is so in need of both."

Obviously, this book was written way before the current crisis and Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

Not recommended.

An acerbic radio talk show host based in Dallas starts what could be an important few days when he discovers that his controversial late night show is about to be “picked up” by a nationwide network of radio stations. However, all is not perfect for him, because on top of troubles with his love life and fears that the management of the network will try to alter the content of his show he has to cope with a neo-nazi group who have been angered by his forthright opinions.
