Publisher Comments:

Never before has any biographer had such close access to Fidel Castro as did Tad Szule.  The outcome of a long, direct relationship, this riveting portrait reveals astonishing and exclusive information about Cuba, the revolution, and the notorious, larger-than-life leader who has ruled his country with an iron fist for more than forty years.

Only Tad Szule could bring Fidel to such vivid life--the loves and losses of the man, the devious tactics of the conspirator, the triumphs and defeats of the revolutionary leader who challenged an American president and brought the world to the brink of nuclear disaster.

Jose Juarez, April 24, 2009 (view all comments by Jose Juarez)
Fidel: A Critical Portrait is what Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana (by Michael Azzerad) is to Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. The most in-dept account of one history's most controvercial political figures as told by him. Tad Szulc did his best to write an objective bio.
