What disappointed you about Stalin?
The blurb claims that the author has researched deeply into Stalin's psychology. For anyone interested in the subject, this feels more like the rambling lecture of a professor who has just skimmed over documents
Stalin was without doubt one of the worst individuals to ever walk the planet. This volume gives a short and concise history of the man and his atrocities if you don't have the time and inclination to spend time with someone who was responsible for more death and destruction than than anyone but Mao in China. But it is time well spent to understand the horror of Communism, in a world where the brutalities of the so so distant past are being forgotten. Hitler's Germany was a paradise ( Except for Jews, Gypsies, Slavs,and the mentally disabled) in comparison to the Soviet Union that Lenin formed and Stalin later lead. There life was lived by all in terror and apprehension knowing that anyone , at any level, was subject to instant defamation and slow death by starvation, overwork in a freezing Gulag, or simply a bullet in the back of the head.
A grim reminder that individual choices matter. Stalin didn't have to be heinous, sadistic, mass murderer...but he was.
