Editorial Reviews

“Tolstoy was the archetype of the modern secular guru and in this book Boot brilliantly and irrefutably demonstrates the shallow, egotistical, and irreligious nature of his thought. In doing so, he sheds much light not only on Tolstoy, but upon Russia and the modern world.”—Theodore Dalrymple

"Boot constructs a convincing psychological and moral sketch of  Tolstoy."--Quadrant
