I am the son of Cuban-exile parents who were displaced in the early 60's by Fidel Castro. I have studied Cuban history, in particular the era in which Castro has been a major player. Castro clearly manipulates facts relative to my parents' and many other exiled people's experiences. Upon listening, it became very clear that Fidel has filtered the text to fit his needs. The author provides a disclaimer at the beginning of the book that Fidel reviewed and edited before publishing for more "clarity". I listened with this caveat, not expecting full truth, but, with interest in how Castro portrays himself and the communist regime he has led. In this context, I found the book very interesting, but, would suggest reading other books on Castro to cross-reference historical facts and events.
