Though it is very interesting (written by somebody who actually lived at the court), I wouldnīt put much trust into it. Especially not after reading "Confessions of the Tsarina" by the same author, which is a complete rubbish.

All the Radziwill books are not accurate IMHO.

not really accurate when compared to other memoirs, but it is an entertaining read, and gives a good idea of the gossip around St Petersburg in the period it was written.

Count Paul Vasili aka Princess Radziwill? I'm confused. According to Amazon it was originally published in 1914? Did a woman write it and use a man's name in order to get it published?
