I enjoy both biographies and vodka martinis A martini should be dry a biography should not What I liked It does include some really interesting background on Russian political history It shines as a business bio his strategies excruciatingly detailed and well researched even inspirational The guy was a marketing genius 1st Russian to introduce branding a self made millionaire caught between the shifting tides of the fall of the Tsars and the rise of Communism no small feat His marketing tactics were entertaining For example he d round up impoverished serfs stake them drinking money with instructions to hit as many taverns as possible the deal being they d demand Smirnov s vodka and nothing else or they d take their business elsewhere Unheard of as taverns were used to serving the cheapest gut rotting swill the only criteria it got you drunk fast and was made of potatoes It worked tavern owners beat down his door begging for his product brilliant Where it failed Fascinating story that reads like a textbook I finished with no clear sense of Smirnov as a man And back to the vodka this is a book about vodka right I expected to pickup some interesting trivia to drop at cocktail parties Nada2 12 stars
