Very interesting overview,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cuba: What Everyone Needs to Know (Paperback)
If you are buying this expecting a tour guide you've bought the wrong book. If you bought it because you want to learn about Cuba's history in a brief potted overview but with enough detail to make sense, then this is the book for you. It is obvious that Ms. Sweig has done her homework and has created a book that puts across pretty much all the salient facts in a brief but very readable style. Unless you're the sort of tourist that just lazes around on the beach and visits the occasional site, I heartily recommend this book. The Q & A style is brilliant, especially, if like me, you read something, promptly forget it and then want to re-find the relevant fact and learn it again.
