An informative compilation of useful information about life in Russia (past and present) including many details that Western (or other non-Russian) writers are apt to get wrong. The writing style is engaging, like a conversation with a friend.

From the description, I expected the book would cover contemporary and Soviet-era Russia, but is also dispels myths about life in earlier epochs.

Typos and formatting errors were numerous enough to be annoying -- the text could use another good copy edit. But in all, this is a useful and informative reference for a writer who wants to set a story in Russia and get the facts right. I especially appreciate the many links to additional online resources.
