really liked it
bookshelves: biography

This is a fascinating story for anyone interested in how the revolutionary impulse gets honed. Love or hate him, Che is an important figure of the 20th century and had an impact in innumerable lives. I've seen his face on T-shirts in the US all the way to Vodka Bottles in China. This book gives a very intimate look into who he was an how the Che that became famous came about.

Toss out who its by and this is still worth reading. It is a travelogue full of endless optimism, neat characters, fascinating places and overflowing with humanity.

It is a beautiful book and highly recommended.
