I loved this book because it was so straightforward. Not relying on lofty words and dictionary adjective descriptions. The pace and movement of the book was also captivating to me.
I liked it, but... There were a few glaring issues I had with it. 1- Where does that 4% of the population are sociopaths figure come from and what other studies corroborate this finding? 2- It is obvious that there are undertones and some specific examples of the writers opinion on this topic, I would have appreciated that was removed and the reader/listener could draw their own conclusions. 3- The writer Martha references "On Killing" book that I have also read and there mistakes with some conclusions there as well.
So when taken these 3 issues into account it made me wonder what else whas incorrect in this work. It is possible that these were footnotes in the text that were not referenced, that is a possibility, however if this is the case it should have been notated.
I loved this book. Ends about abruptly, I guess it's fitting considering the crash. Still was a fun ride!
Can't get over the ranting about one persons perspective. The soldiers I know had a very different experience. Sorry I just could not get over the constant pounding and interjecting of politics in this book. Rather than state a fact or opinion and leave it at that the author continues to beat you over the head with it as though I did not hear or understand it the first time.
I have always heard of the Cuban society as a mix of legend, cliche and myth and it was fascinating to me to get a glimpse of what the life and lifestyle was like.
