Or, for a more down to earth take on it, check out Lisa Dickey's Bears in the Streets (www.amazon.com/Bears-Streets-Journeys-across-Changing/dp/1250092299). It only deals with Vladivostok to SpB leg of the line, but is pretty good at building a perception of TransSib as a mode of transportation between destinations, rather than a destination per se.
Unfortunately, in the vast majority of cases "I did TranSiberian" is akin to "I survived a Trans-Atlantic flight".
