This book is a great primer for those interested in learning more about the Argentina-born Cuban revolutionist, Ernesto "El Che" Guevera. It is NOT, however, a good primer for those looking to learn about about The Cuban Revolution. I think I would have found this book more enjoyable if I had known more of the nitty-gritty details of the revolution. You can learn some about the revolution from this book, but for the most part, Che's Audience in this collection of letters and speeches are people ...more

Before I write my review, I would like to say that anyone interested in what Che Guevara (and to a large extent, Fidel Castro) embodies, I would definitely recommend this. However , having knowledge about both Guevara and Castro, along with the factors leading up to the Cuban Revolution and the revolution itself is crucial. You will not fully reap the benefits of this book otherwise. So, with that being said, I recommend "Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life" by Jon Lee Anderson.

I am a great admir

“A faithful reflection of Che as he was, or, better, as he developed”—from the preface by Joseph Hansen. In twenty speeches, interviews, and letters, Guevara dissects the workings of the imperialist system with scientific clarity, unflinching truthfulness, and biting humor. Cuba has shown by its example, he says, that “a people can liberate themselves and keep themselves free.”

“Throughout the speeches and essays the warmness of the man comes through…. Nor has his death dimmed confidence in his

Know these basic texts by, with and about the Che, and you won't fall for propaganda that wants to denounce him either as a fascist serial killer, or as a new Jesus.

He was a human; He thought things; He talked about things; He did things.

That's all.

Fenomenal! I remember thinking this man may go on for a while, but I wish I had been there when he did.
