This was a great book in more ways than one. This book, written by Juan Reynaldo Sanches, a former Fidel Castro's "inner ring" of security is an amazing inside look at lies of Fidel's life and lifestyle.
Just as every dictator before him, Fidel's incognito Capitalist lifestyle was at odds with the rhetoric he spewed. This is nothing new. You do not need to go to Cuba to see the lies of this Socialism and Communism rhetoric. Right here in the U.S. You had Bernie Sanders that would constantly pontificate about "Millionaires and Billionaires". Ironically, his rhetoric changed when it came out that he owned multiple million dollar homes, made millions on his book and drove expensive cars. Highly different than the austere life style he preaches about. Also we see people like the "Trained Marxist" Patrice Khan-Cullors who constantly ranted about the rich 1% and the evils of Capitalism until she spent millions of dollars buy 4 homes for herself with the proceeds of her "organization". There are countless examples of those who talk the talk, but do not walk the walk. You constantly see these spoiled kids studying in their Ivy League schools paid by their parents that have sacrificed themselves to put their kids through college, sipping their Starbucks, wearing their Birkenstocks, driving their BMWs all the while complaining about Capitalism. Anyone who tells you that Capitalism is not the best system in the world, you are either dump or complicit.
