Good Read

by jim a on Jul 18, 2013

This is the second book of Massie's I have read. Like the first it is loaded with interesting facts and details that flesh out his story. He delivers well, with colorful insight of the vast sources he cites to make often difficult subjects easy and fun reading. This book is VERY thorough and the short vignettes of Peter's contemporaries gave me a long list of other biographies to seek out.

cassette part 3

by Eric S on Aug 9, 2012

The cassette arrived quickly and the cassettes appear to be in good shape (not broken). I have not listened to the tapes since it is part 3 and I am still trying to find part 1 and 2 of the tape series. I was happy with the order and the company and would do business with them again.


Peter the Great Revealed

by reader11 on Feb 23, 2012

This is the first in the series of three works by Robert Massie detailing the lives of Russian Tsars. It was followed by Nicholas and Alexandra and Catherine the Great. All three of these works are excellent, but Peter the Great is by far the longest and most detailed portrait as Massie takes pains to describe the political, cultural and geographic realiities of the time. Any student of Russian history, including the most casual, will find themselves happily immersed in Peter's world from the first word to the last.
