My Life, Paperback
2 out of 5 (1 rating)


He is the only world leader to have outlasted nine US presidents, has survived over 600 assassination attempts and remains one of the twentieth century's most controversial figures.

Here Castro tells his story in full for the first time, speaking openly about everything from his parents and earliest influences to his imprisonment, guerrilla war and the Cuban revolution and on to the Bay of Pigs, the missile crisis and his relationship with Che Guevara.

He also remembers the people he knew, from John F. Kennedy to Ernest Hemingway. Whatever your views on Castro are, this is an essential record of an incredible life - and even more extraordinary times.

Seven out of ten.

A biography of Fidel Castro based on hours of interviews with him. Very interesting in his early life and the start of the revolution. Dwindles toward the end.
