Russia is the largest country in the world and covers more than one eighth of the globe’s inhabited land mass. So it stands to reason that it has been home to many amazing people. The Amazing People Club takes you on a virtual historical journey into the lives of some of these inspirational individuals.

Famous for her many lovers, Catherine the Great was also a strong leader who inspired loyalty and respect rather than fear and oppression—indeed she did not do things in a traditional manner. Orbit the earth with Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space at the age of twenty-seven. Be swept away by the composer of such masterpieces as Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky, who led a somewhat troubled life despite achieving immense success. Also, meet Vasili Mitrokhin and Ivan Pavlov, whose monumental stories are brought to life in this fascinating audiobook.

Each story comes to life through BioViews. These are short biographical narratives, similar to interviews. They provide an easy way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.
