An Immigrant's Love Letter to the West Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
For all of the West's failings—terrible food, cold weather and questionable politicians with funny hair to name a few—it has its upsides. Konstantin would know. Growing up in the Soviet Union, he experienced first-hand the horrors of a socialist paradise gone wrong, having lived in extreme poverty with little access to even the most basic of necessities. It wasn't until he moved to the UK that Kisin found himself thriving in an open and tolerant society, receiving countless opportunities he would never have had otherwise.
Funny, provocative and unswervingly perceptive, An Immigrant's Love letter to the West interrogates the developing sense of self-loathing the Western sphere has adopted and offers an alternative perspective. Exploring race politics, free speech, immigration and more, Kisin argues that wrongdoing and guilt need not pervade how we feel about the West—and Britain—today, and that despite all its ups and downs, it remains one of the best places to live in the world.
After all, if an immigrant can't publicly profess their appreciation for this country, who can?

It’s time our educators took us back to understanding our history and the legacy left by our great philosophers and scientific minds.
Thank you Konstantin
Konstantin reminds us why we should be proud and also why we are lucky to have his insight
I must admit after reading the book I was also left with a lingering sense of threat and paranoia. The threat an danger from Communism are alive and ever-increasing. It both enrages and saddens me that we have home-grown communists roaming every institution of our great (well it will not be great for much longer if we let them win) nation. As an immigrant and a banana, I certainly hope I will be long dead before it happens. Even better, just like the author, I want to save the country who saved me in return.
Even if you’ve been watching his many interviews regarding the book and his viewpoints, the book is an absolute must buy. He clarifies his opinions and backs them up with facts and anecdotes, bulldozing over the crazy opinions out there. It’s written with pace, humour, and passion. Buy it today.
