    Like many more such biographies brought about Hourly History, this too is quite informative and without any bias. It also brings forth certain lesser known aspects of Lenin. His relationship with Stalin is one such aspect.

    “While a state exists there can be no freedom; where there is freedom, there is no state.” Vladimir Lenin Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov was born in the town of Simbirsk, Russia on April 22, 1870. He was born into the wealthy middle-class family, the family led a comfortable life; unlike a vast majority of their countrymen. Vladimir’s older brother, Alexander was executed for an unsuccessful bombing attempt, possibly with the tsar as the desired target. This event had a dramatic and lasting effect on the “While a state exists there can be no freedom; where there is freedom, there is no state.” Vladimir Lenin Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov was born in the town of Simbirsk, Russia on April 22, 1870. He was born into the wealthy middle-class family, the family led a comfortable life; unlike a vast majority of their countrymen. Vladimir’s older brother, Alexander was executed for an unsuccessful bombing attempt, possibly with the tsar as the desired target. This event had a dramatic and lasting effect on the young high school student, Vladimir. After graduation, he applied for admittance to the University of St. Petersburg, his brother, Alexander’s alma mater and was promptly rejected. He eventually gained entrance to the Kazan University, where he studies law. As a student, Vladimir was introduced to the revolutionary elements and was promptly dismissed from the school. He went to his mother’s house in Kazan and immersed himself in the works of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and Nikolai Chernyshevsky. This last writer, according to Lenin, was the true catalyst for his transformation. He was eventually, through the tenacious efforts of his mother, admitted into the University of St. Petersburg where he finally graduated with a degree in law. In February of 1894, he met Nadezhda Krupskaya, a local school teacher; she soon became one of his most devoted followers. Trouble was to raise its head once again and he was arrested and sentenced to a three-year term of exile in Siberia. In May of 1898, Nadezhda joined him in exile; they were married on July 10, 1898. While in exile he began to write a few of his treatises, including the lengthy “Development of Capitalism in Russia,” under the pen name Vladimir Llin; which was eventually transformed to Lenin. This is the tale of a man with a vision and the burning drive to see it come to fruition. Possessing the ultimate revolutionary spirit, I see Lenin in the same light as Che’ Guevara, a man always in search of the next revolution. Regardless of what one may think of communist ideology, the Soviet Union, and the totalitarian government that remains there today, it can’t be successfully argued or denied that Lenin’ s dream and actions to rid Russia of the landed “bourgeoisie” was nothing short of masterful. This is a short history of a remarkably determined man.

    It is shocking to hear that Vladimir Lenin thought the populace was too stupid to know what was good for them.  And yet, Russians admire his to this day.  I would have liked to have had some inkling from the author why the Russians praise a man who thought so little of them. Thank you for explaining the term 'Bolshevism' because it is a more important term than I surmised from past readings.  This work did not address the issue-thought-belief of some that Stalin poisoned Lenin.  I've always been It is shocking to hear that Vladimir Lenin thought the populace was too stupid to know what was good for them.  And yet, Russians admire his to this day.  I would have liked to have had some inkling from the author why the Russians praise a man who thought so little of them.

Probably the most fascinating fact from this book is the knowledge that Russians spend almost $200,000 per year to keep Lenin mummified, so he can continue to be viewed by the populace.  I have 2 questions:  (1) Why does the population want to see a man that has been dead so many years? and (2) Why is it so important to keep Lenin above ground?  Great reading; I couldn't put it aside until I'd finished it.

    How Little I Knew Before Reading His Bio! The image I had of Lenin was not what I learned before I read this bio, not that he was a great man; he was not. Lenin didn’t really want total control of Russia. He actually thought the working class were just too stupid to know what was in their best interests. He maintained this belief even when socialism proved not to be economically successful. His foresight was bad in that regard, but not in his thinking that Stalin was too radical and should be rem How Little I Knew Before Reading His Bio!

His foresight was bad in that regard, but not in his thinking that Stalin was too radical and should be removed. Unfortunately, Lenin died after a succession of strokes before he could remove Stalin, who became the ruthless dictator at the shooting end of a gun and who immortalized Lenin by keeping his dead body on parade though Lenin would never have desired that. Very interesting!

    3.5 This Hourly History book made me think in the same ways that the Rasputin one made me laugh. That’s definitely not a bad thing. Very intriguing overall. It’s basic but to the point, and for those who are politically illiterate like me, it helped me understand some of the more political sides of Lenin’s philosophy a lot more. I found myself making an uncomfortable amount of connections to today’s politics and I don’t know how that makes me feel.

    The average guy is too stupid to know what’s good for him Lenin had developed the belief that the general public was simply just too stupid to know what its own best interest was. Over the years he had developed a kind of warped paternalistic view of larger society, believing that he knew what was best for it, and could only institute his grand vision of utopian paradise on the masses through force.

    I love this brief biographies. The authors manage to get a lot of information into a small package. That said, I learned a lot about Lenin and it jogged my memory of when I studied Russian history in high school. A good read for anyone who is interested in world history and the roots of the east's political history. I love this brief biographies.

    Supreme. For the first book I finished reading on Amazon, I LOVED IT. He embedded his own opinions in it, but it's not frequent, which I like. I enjoyed this book overall. The only reason I didn't give a 5 was because there could be even better Hourly History books. I'm about to read some more. Supreme. For the first book I finished reading on Amazon, I LOVED IT.

    Basic but worth reading Clearly written and neutral in tone. The driving passion of Lenin was social change, but little attention to human limitations. As long as there is any injustice anywhere the state will endure. Contrary to Marx, the state will never wither away.

    If you want to know about Lenin, this book is one such which does not contain inherent bias and you can finish this within an hour which serves the purpose of a reader. You will also get to know some amazing facts about Lenin which will keep you involved in this book.
