An American deconstructs Russia – And Looks in the Mirror.

“They’re digging out, so why are we digging in?”   This question, referring to state run socialism, sums up the adventure the book takes you on.In August of 2010, Joe traveled to Russia with his wife and five teen-aged children to see what they would see.  They saw plenty.  And so can you, by reading this brief, hilarious, yet comprehensive look at what Russia was, is and is becoming.  It’s as if you are there with them, butting heads with real Russians, while looking back at America.

Understand the Russian temperament, their history, their politics, and their economy as you join Joe, coping with his family’s complaints, the Russian bureaucracy, and the Russian professors he hired as tour guides.

The contrast with America’s direction, though, is vivid and ominous.
