Putin: A Man's Manual of Manliness will lead you into a wilderness world where only the fittest survive, where men are men, and every year a team of publicity supremos follow you on your annual vacation to photograph you in various poses to furnish your best-selling annual calendar.

Pictured bare-chested astride a mighty steed, or plunging semi-naked into the icy water, Vlad cuts a fine figure of a 'man's man'. But when the hunting and fishing and posturing is done, it is possible to witness the softer side of Russia's No.1 heartthrob premier. Canoodling with a puppy, or offering a hand of condolence to a semi naked mixed martial arts fighter, Putin represents a new take on old-school masculinity.

Using carefully curated quotes and pictures, coupled with games, puzzles, stories and imagined ephemera, this book will offer a sometimes shocking but mostly hilarious portrait of everyone's favourite Russian Action Man.


Deluxe full colour pin-up portraits of Putin at play, each accompanied with surprising quotes from the man himself. Inspirational tips, tricks and hacks for retro-sexual outdoor adventures. Putin's Puzzle Pages. Wordsearches, crosswords, anagrams, spot the difference and more, precariously themed around Putin's world. Delightful colouring in and join the dots pages - follow the numbers to reveal the wild tiger that Vlad has just shot a tranquilliser dart into.
