A moderately well-written though woefully biased account of the life of Che Guevara.
This is effectively an informative though highly impersonal run down of the events in Ernesto's life, from childhood through to his death, which, while high in details, fails to capture the humanity of the man or what he was like beneath the historical facts.

There seems to be an almost ulterior unwillingness to examine the man's fallible side, rather simply painting him as a flawed genius with only historical fa

This book has many images that capture parts of Che's charisma, and enhance the story. A good basic intro to the life of Ernesto Guevara. I like it because even though it is a fairly short book, it expands beyond the Cuba years, and talks about his early life as well as his later years in Africa. A nice accompaniment to the Motorcycle Diaries.

This book is an excellent summary of the man from student onwards. Accompanied by pictures of the times, it tells Che Guevara's story. His faults as well as his virtues are mentioned, and it is left to the reader to decide what to think of him. A good introduction to anyone wanting to learn about either the man, or the part of history he was from.

A tragic, yet inspiring telling of the life of Che Guevara. It's not the most in depth of books on the guerilla, but David Sandison deserves the applause.
