While this was not the longest or most detailed book on Che I have read, it was a very interesting read. I was impressed by the quality of the book itself and the photos were indeed the highlight. Someone with even no previous knowledge of Che before reading this would be given a great amount of insight to the person he was. Chapters were arranged to keep the book flowing and the author gave very insightful comments worthy of developing discussions on a man that was so influential in the 20th century and to politics today.

This is a great book that focuses more on Che Guevara as a person, and gives you reasons why he was who he was, what influenced his ways of thinking, and talks about a lot more than simply his life as a guerilla fighter. Aside from this, the book has an enourmous amount of pictures that really help visualize what he was all about.

This rather childlike dipliction of the life of Guevara is not the best biography ever written about the Gurrila, however it exsposes the fundamental and key aspects of his life. What makes me give this book the decent mark that it has recieved is the amount of photos of both Guevara and of the many companions he spent time with during the many wars he waged against evil.
