This is not a book of praise for Castro. Infante is a wonderful writer whose humour and turn of phrase alone make this book worthwhile. Infante intelligently shares his personal experiences of Fidel Castro and Cuba without the bleating and anger of some other authors.
Cuba is a very interesting place , a wonderful vibrant experience. But of course it is not the paradise the tourist may think. Any Cuban over say age 60 has suffered under Castro... but hey read a few books on the subject, visit and then form your own opinion.
