I'm not sure how I feel after such a commitment to John Lee Anderson's book but I'm going to give this a go.

Oct.30
This book was more informal than Anderson's but big in terms of passion, having an inside view to Che's life, journals, the comrades with whom he fought, right down to comments from frightened peasants who watched him as he was brought into La Higuera.

I'm left wondering how, if ever, inequality will ever be rectified in this world.

Questo ponderoso volume (858 pg, compreso le note per ogni capitolo e la ricca bibliografia) è senz’altro una delle migliori biografie del Che.
Scritta appassionatamente, con una ricchezza di testimonianze di amici e compagni di guerriglia, e di citazioni dagli scritti dello stesso Che durante il suo percorso di vita e di guerrigliero rivoluzionario.
Le sue idee, convinzioni, scelte, comportamenti anche i più banali come girare con gli anfibi allacciati a metà perché sempre di corsa, l’insonnia, l...more

Mi cita favorita de este libro, una reflexión del Che...

"A pesar de que uno ve a los cuadros cansados, nunca, por lo menos yo, he dicho a nadie 'descansa'.Demasiadas veces dejamos echar raíz al espíritu de autoconservación, debido a una idea errónea sobre nuestra importancia futura"

Durante su periodo como Ministro de Industria en la Cuba Post-revolucionaria.
Marcos Bolaños
Un muy buen libro para conocer un poco mas a ese personaje que muchos conocemos simplemente por su imagen y sin saber realmente lo que hizo y por lo cual es adorado por muchas personas.

Este es un libro muy completo que sin duda, vale la pena comprar en su edición de papel debido a las fotografías que contiene. El autor del libro, sin duda se esforzo en tratar de "sintetizar" la vida de este gran personaje y hacer una gran investigación alrededor de este personaje.

Sin duda, el libro me da una vis...more

Almost finished with this biography. The best part is about Che and the rest of Cuba dealing the nationalization of resources and standing up to the U.S. with Soviet Union backing. I wish the entire book had been about that because there's so much that could be learned about how a people/a society become self-determined, especially under a difficult and challenging economic system like the socialist transformation of the society.

I am currently reading this book and it is amazing. It is not only about all your learn about Ernesto Guevara, El Che, but it is also a journey through the political, economical and social history of America and Europe at that specific time.

The writer tells the story in an objective way, he does not take parts, he is only telling us how things happened based on testimonials and The Che's authentic Diaries.

Having lived in Argentina I was interested to learn more about the man, the myth and the legend who is Che Guevara. This book answered any question I might have had about Che. I found the detailed research by the author outstanding.

Really enjoyed the book, & especially the inclusion of Ernesto Guevara's direct quotes on almost every other page.

Mejor biografia del Che que he leido.

highly recommended

There is so much to dislike about this book, I don't know where to begin. Maybe with the editing and translation. There are so many mistakes that I wonder if the translator read what he put down. It's almost as if a translating computer did the first go round and then a person tried to clean it up. Words that didn't belong, sentences that seemed contradictory... Just awful. The author seems to be a pretty big Che fan so that biased things. Not necessarily a bad thing. Bios can be written by admi...more
Sara
Una ricostruzione accurata, a volte fin troppo, non tanto della vita quanto del personaggio, basata su un'ampia varietà di fonti diverse. Dalle testimonianze di parenti, amici, compagni fino (e soprattutto) a stralci di lettere e diari dello stesso Guevara.
Non sempre scorrevole e un po' troppo cronistico, a tratti si perde nel pettegolezzo o nelle sterili riflessioni dell'autore, ma tutto sommato mi pare una guida più che buona per chiunque sia interessato a scoprire chi era, come agiva e come s...more

I am the translator of this biography (into English), and it was the most challenging of Taibo's books I have worked with, both for the scope, the subject matter and the approach. I should say that Taibo was the first historian who published details of Che's time in the Congo, which had been secret for almost thirty years. Previous biographies simply had a gap of about a year between the Argentine-born revolutionary leaving Cuba, and his winding up in Bolivia.

Vita morte e pensiero del più grande "santo" laico che ha attraversato il '900, una leggenda immortale la cui vita,l'autore ha raccontato con l'appassionata animosità che era propria anche del suo protagonista.
Marsha
Loving the level of detail on this book. Paco lets Che do most of the talking. Seems very uncritical of the early days of the Cuban revolution (after Batista fled), but I don;t know enough to be sure. Need to read something to give this some background.
justin stepney
fantastic.

got into aaalll things about him and surrounding him.

i mean literally - during battles it would say every single detail (w/50,000 references as well..)

almost overwhelmingly so!

grand.

still makes me wanna read more!..
Pietro Bellini
Malloppone di 800 pagine.

L'ho letto praticamente come un breviario, un po' alla volta.

Consigliatissimo a chi vuole saperne di più di Che Guevara e della storia di Cuba (e non solo).

Passionnant, une biographie qui semble proche de la réalité, mais un peu laborieux à lire.
