• "In fewer than 150 pithy pages, Galeotti sketches a bleak, but convincing picture of the man in the Kremlin and the political system that he dominates."

    The Times
  • "Dynamic, authoritative and often witty"

    The Scotsman
  • "Mark Galeotti, in We Need to Talk About Putin, has distilled a great deal of research and thought into a slim and engaging volume that reads like a primer for anyone poised to enter a negotiation with the Russian president."

    The Guardian
  • "Easily the shrewdest and most insightful analysis yet of Putin’s policymaking."

    Foreign Affairs
  • "Punchy and highly readable"
