2.0 von 5 Sternen Extremely boring, 11. Juli 2010
This is by far one of the most boring books I've ever read. In order to feel happy, the author keeps, among others, a daily diary, a one-sentence diary, a food diary, a gratitude book ... What a waste of time - and that goes for reading the book as well.

1.0 von 5 Sternen One-sided and narrow-minded, 23. November 2007
This book is very narrow-minded and one-sided, lacks coherency, and Latell's negative attitude, if not hatred, towards Fidel is easily detectable between the lines. His account of "what would happen if ..." stands for his (and the current U.S. administration's) wishful thinking (see eg p. 244). According to the book and Latell himself, he started tracking Fidel Castro in the 1960s. It is hence surprising that he did not undertake his first journey to Cuba until 1990 (see p. 234).
The book is called "After Fidel", but, except for the Afterword, there is hardly any elaboration on what will happen in the Cuba after Fidel.
Similarly, according to the book cover, this is "the first biography of Raul Castro". Again, I strongly dispute this. Hardly anything of Raul's life is being told here, other than his acts in correlation to Fidel.
A good book to read about Cuba is Ann Louise Bardach's "Cuba Confidential". What I liked about Bardach's approach - and which is what makes the striking difference to Latell's account - is that she has travelled to Cuba on numerous occasions, interviewed Fidel on a couple of them and presents a balanced and understanding account of events where both sides of the story get a fair amount of hearing. And it is exactly the understanding of Cuba and Cuban affairs that I find missing in Latell's account.
