Product Description

Synopsis

The remains of the legendary revolutionary Che Guevara were recently discovered in Bolivia; the life and legend of Che are similarly unearthed in this Beginner'sMD>> guide to the quintessential revolutionary. From his early travels through South America as a doctor, to his years as Castro's right-hand man, and his death in Bolivia, this book traces the life of a man with a mission and a vocation to serve humanity, whose death propelled him to the kind of iconic status enjoyed only by rock singers and movie stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZON.COM START TO STOP DISTRIBUTING CONTROVERSIAL BOOKS 2 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent summary of Che Guevarra's life, but this book is "NOT AVAILABLE." "Chomsky for Beginners" another book about a controversial man is also "NOT AVAILABLE. This is my experience that AMAZON.COM has been starting to stop distributing many books that are too much to the Left on the spectrum of "American Politics." Maybe it's the time for me to start supporting the independent book stores and stop buying at AMAZON.COM
3.0 out of 5 stars Good for a start 9 July 2013

I purchased this for my 11 year old daughter, as a way to introduce her to this subject which I have read about at length. As such it does a fairly good job. However, for those looking for more substance it falls short.
In any case, in all fairness it is extremely difficult to write about this subject (person) and attempt to summarize his life in such a short book.

2.0 out of 5 stars It really is for 'Beginners', not for serious study. 26 July 1998
By Larry Ledbetter (LNL01@aol.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Although "Che for Beginners" is published in a comic book format, that shouldn't relegate its content to fiction and historical inaccuaracies. In a positive light, the book does provide a (very) basic grounding in the story of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, which may be a good starting point for the uninitiated. As line drawings go, the artwork is great for helping the reader to visualize the story. However, I think a little more research and attention to detail could have been applied to make this book more accurate and informative. To cite a couple of examples: Page 9 gives the date of Che's capture in Bolivia as October 8, 1957 (actual date 1967), and page 19 provides his birthdate as June 14, 1928. Now as his birth certificate does indeed indicate June 14 as his date of birth, he was actually born on May 14, but in order to remove any stigma attached to the fact that his mother was pregnant before she and his father were married, the birth certificate! was falsified. These are the types of historical inaccuracies that indicate a lack of research and attention to detail that greatly detract from this book's ability to inform the reader. There are other inaccuracies as well. In summary, I would recommend this book as a starting point for a young person but would definitely not recommend it for the serious student or knowledgable reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars A brief comic book-style overview at the life of Guevara. 9 July 1998
By mcksteen@email.unc.edu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a great place to start if you want to know more about Guevara, Cuban politics, or Communism in Latin America. This book gives insight into Guevara's life with respect to changes in world politics during his lifetime.

4.0 out of 5 stars ok for its size 23 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is okay for its size; It inspired me to check out a copy of _Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life_ by John Anderson from my local library. There are several good "Che" bios out there, I think...I'd like to learn more about which biographies are considered the best among historical scholars; I appreciated the other reviewer who pointed out innaccuracies, etc...I also noticed the aforementioned date error of Che's debacle in Bolivia and knew it had to be the 6os not the 50s, etc. I would like to learn more about this flamboyant Argentenian (and Cuban hero)...I am a leftist but only really discovered Guevara when I started learning the Spanish language.
