Bio of Che Guevara. Interesting to see a critical review of his life from childhood until death.You get to see his personal side and his revolutionary side. Very good read for anyone interested in the history of Latin America.

I read at least part of a bio of Che Guevara in high school and it may have been this one. It's acting as a placeholder for the moment.
