The Hugo Chavez story, 17 Feb. 2010
This is one of the best documented works I have read. The story is impactful from the first page till the end. The writer has not given in to the temptation to give opinions, but has stayed with facts only. I think this is mandatory material for whomever opens his mouth about Chavez and has never actually read or studied anything. Especially if you do not speak Spanish fluently, you cannot judge about Chavez without reading such a book first. Apart from a perfect documented political & war story, it is also exciting to read. I can't recall having read such a good piece of work ever before. Important note: the book does not change one's opinion about socialism, capitalism, communism or pro- or anti-chavez. You decide for yourself.
