Sintesi dell'editore

WITH SUBSTANTIAL MATERIAL NOT INCLUDED IN THE DOCUMENTARY

Academy Award winner Oliver Stone was able to secure what journalists, news organizations, and even other world leaders have long coveted: extended, unprecedented access to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Putin Interviews are culled from more than a dozen interviews with Putin over a two-year span—never before has the Russian leader spoken in such depth or at such length with a Western interviewer. No topics are off limits in the interviews, which first occurred during Stone’s trips to meet with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in Moscow and most recently after the election of President Donald Trump.

Prodded by Stone, Putin discusses relations between the United States and Russia, allegations of interference in the US election, and Russia’s involvement with conflicts in Syria, Ukraine, and elsewhere across the globe. Putin speaks about his rise to power and details his relationships with Presidents Clinton, George W. Bush, Obama, and Trump. The exchanges are personal, provocative, and at times surreal. At one point, Stone asks, “Why did Russia hack the election?”; at another, Stone introduces him to Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 Cold War satire Dr. Strangelove, which the two watch together.

Stone has interviewed controversial world leaders before, including Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, and Benjamin Netanyahu. But The Putin Interviews, in its unmediated access to one of the most enigmatic and powerful men in the world, can only be compared to the series of conversations between David Frost and Richard Nixon we now refer to as “The Nixon Interviews” of 1977.

The book will also contain references and sources that give readers a deeper understanding of the topics covered in the interviews and make for a more robust reading experience.

You decide.

Oliver Stone does an excellent job not only in the interviewing of a very powerful man, but he manages to give Putin a "down to earth"persona that allows the listener to become part of the conversation. Stone dissects all aspects of Putin without putting Putin on the defensive while he allows Putin to engage as a common man. One tends to forget that Putin wields power that is truly unimaginable. Another very clever aspect of the story is the interjection of verification of Putin's answers without annoying the listener. A very important book in understanding our advesary or ally. One decides after listening to the conversation between a brilliant filmmaker and biographer and Putin, the other powerful leader on the world stage.

A for Effort...but I nearly puked.

My first star always goes to effort. If a person conceives an idea and works to actualize it, they deserve that pat on the back, for “many’s the slip twixt the cup and the lip.”

Beyond that, this book is nothing but a propaganda medium for Mr. Putin. I do not regret buying it bc I’m interested in knowing how very consequential people like Mr. Putin view the world. The person I have issues with is Oliver Stone. If he set out to be a journalist, he failed woefully. If this interview were conducted by Mr. Putin’s protégés, it couldn’t have been more groveling and mollycoddling. It’s a study in journalistic infantilism. Mr. Stone hates his country. And went proselytizing with Mr. Putin. It’s a shameful case of “see? I’m an American and I hate my country. Be impressed!” And Mr. Putin, smart as hell, treated him with the condescending patience with which intelligence approaches boring servility. Buy the book to be entertained by how cunning and smart Mr. Putin is. But have a barf bag close by. Mr. Stone will many times drive you to the brink his questions and lapdog obsequiousness!

Excellently told

This is excellent. Better in fact than the showtime interview. Get to know Russia and Putin through these interviews. Don't let the mainstream media poison you to Russia or the Russian President. Worth your time and quite interesting as well.

Required reading for all Americans and Europeans

What your Government is doing and your MSM is not reporting. Read this book or watch the interview and form your own judgement.

Good, Fair, Interesting Chance for Putin's View

I chose this audiovox because I wanted to hear Putin's views with the least bias possible. This book, for me, hit the mark for this goal even better than Putin's "autobiography."
While I did not particularly enjoy Stone's anti-American-Government bent that is evident in the interviews, I think such an approach was necessary to get the whole side of certain stories. Yes, it allowed for a bit of bias, but it's an understandable bias. In history and studies of contemporary policy, there will always be a bias, but Stone's bias was unhidden and therefore easy to analyze in putting together my views. Also, I'm not under a grand illusion that the United States Government is innocent or completely moral in all situations. Without commenting on the truth or untruth of some controversial views about US foreign policy, it's enlightening to know the criticisms.
Putin does his very best to come across as not being anti-American nor completely anti-American-Government, but Stone's approach and Stone's personal views allow for an atmosphere where Putin can clearly (or as clearly as the president's rhetorical style allows) put forward his views and his side of the story. These views and that side of the story often run from at least differently to at most completely contrary and even hostile to their US and/or Western versions.
This book had most of what I hoped it would have. I was hoping to hear Putin's response to human-rights violations beyond token discussions of surveillance (or controlled-access information storage, as I paraphrase Putin's description of it) and the LGBT issue. Nothing much was brought up in any meaningful way about the environment for political opposition nor the treatment of the same. I especially refer here to questioning techniques, the use of physical force, the use of Prussia, and the behavior of prison officials. This is why, not being able to put 4.5 stars for either, I gave 5 stars overall and 4 for story. I might have dropped to 4 stars in both areas, but I think it very important that the greatest possible number of U.S. residents and citizens (as well as other readers throughout the world) should read this book. It's vital to hear the other side of the story.
I enjoyed both of the narrators. Both are talented in not only reading the transcripts of the interviews, but in conveying meaning through different types of laughing, sighing, etc., that I imagine were part of the original interviews. The narrator for Putin used just enough of a Russian accent to let you know who he was supposed to represent - there was no problem with comprehensibility. I found tonalities of voice to be appropriate for both the situations - both narrators are very talented in this area.
Finally, I was surprised - more than I expected (I did expect this) - at the almost crisis-of-faith reaction I had as far as my views on U.S. policy. Some of this shows that the audiobook did a good job presenting me what I wanted, i.e. another view ... the other side of the story. I realized that all I needed to do was put myself in a frame of mind where I didn't consider anything said in the audiobook or by U.S. sources as being necessarily true. I don't mean this misanthropically; in this useful frame of mind, I didn't consider any statements as being necessarily false either. In this way, Putin's statements - and equally informative dodging of questions - allowed me to form my views of the situations in geopolitics using both sides of the story. I sincerely hope that many more readers/listeners/watchers will take this opportunity.

A must read by any means

It's the first time I've read an audiobook non stop. Not only the content it's great but also the intent behind it is a remarkable effort to shine light on the reality of the Russian perspective on many of the world issues.

Putin is the most patient man in the world.

The interviews were just great. Lots of insights from Putin on all the issues.

Especially eye opening was the proof that the US supported the Muslim terror in Chechnya.

One thing Stone gets totally wrong is the size and shape of the Russian economy. Russia has the 6th biggest GDP and more foreign exchange reserves in the bank than they did before the oil crash and sanctions.

One annoying thing about the audio book is the 3rd person that chimes in for "supporting information" and sources. It seems like they put this in to verify things. But in the end, the ppl who don't believe it, won't accept the sources of supporting info anyway.

Informative, fact based, and accurate

What did you love best about The Putin Interviews?

The candid talk with Putin, although it isn't directly alleged, proves media spins information so the USA is always in a war with someone.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The unprecedented access to Putin, and the perspective from the other side.

If you could give The Putin Interviews a new subtitle, what would it be?

The untold story.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend, puts aside politics and gives dates, facts,makes you wonder why we are always at war with someone?

Compelling

The best current affairs book I've read/listened to in a v long time. Fascinating sense of Putin,
his background and philosophy. Oliver Stone could have pushed back more on the oligarchy and corruption of state & individual but overall a fine program. Fascinating. Topical. Relevant.

Putin the chess player

there are no dramatic declarations or controversial opinion expressed in these interviews.

Mr Putin is a careful statesman and Mr Stone is a sycophantic interviewer.

However, the exercise is not devoid of interest, Mr Putin use that window of expression to lay down a very careful and diplomatique narrative, never brash or aggressive, he shades a rational light on Russia's current geopolitical situation.
