If you're looking for a glimpse into the making of Che Guevara, then this is arguably the best option, even more so than Che's own documentation of this journey in his Motorcycle Diaries.

However, this is by no means a political work, and anyone interested in true, amusing, life-changing travel stories should enjoy this, regardless of background knowledge on Guevara, or opinion of him.

Granado was able to edit this book to show the relevant moments in their journey that would eventually lead Guevara to Marxism, whereas Che was unfortunately not able to add to his diaries, making this a far better account of their journey through Latin America, which is made yet more enjoyable by Alberto Granado's humourous observations and wit.
