I had no idea what to expect when I downloaded this book, good or bad. This was a very satisfying read : tightly-packed information, yet very clearly written and narrated. I enjoyed the fact that there is a good amount of info on the years leading to the Revolution giving me a good feel for the social and political background. There are not many superfluous details or anecdotes, as one might expect from an 80 minute-short review of a historical event that spanned over almost a year. Overall a must read for people who, like me, are looking for an introduction on the subject : short, informative, to the point, and paints a good overall picture and, in my case, has triggered the need to read more on the topic.
Only negative point : the narrator's pronunciation of Russian names was sloppy to the point where it was hard to understand what was being said.

Why did my college professors not teach history with such an interesting presentation? Maybe they should listen to these history lessons themselves. I totally recommend this to everyone.

Would recommend it to all; the best value, a lot of history for the price of a bus ticket!

This is a quick, cheap primer for anyone wanting to get the basics about the Russian Revolution. It's only really of use to anyone who knows little to nothing about the subject, but it's not pretending otherwise, and does a fine job of that.
