I only caution that it may be a little too "insider" for readers with just a casual interest in Cuba, those wanting their political views to be supported or attacked, or those looking for shallow entertainment, with tales of salsa, rum and Santeria.
Conversely, for anyone calling themselves a Cuba expert, consultant, or activist; all Cubans living in the U.S.; and anyone working in any way on U.S.-Cuba policy or engaging Cuba economically, this is required reading.
I recently returned to Cuba after a 14 year absence for three weeks of on the ground research. Again I found Marc had insights and information that no one else had. I have been reading and writing about Cuba for the last 17 years both in and out of government. This is the best single book I have read.
I do agree with Dawn - a friend who I also know, but often disagree with - that this is not a book for the casual reader. It is for the careful student of Cuban affairs. As such I do not recommend the e-book edition. This is a book the specialist will want to refer to time and time again. You need to keep it on your bookshelf.
