Home will be the open sky... each guerrilla fighter is ready to die not just to defend an idea, but to make that idea a reality.

Che Guevara remains one of the world's most iconic political and revolutionary figures. Fascinating to admirers and adversaries alike, he captured the minds of millions with his leadership and his belief in guerrilla warfare as the only effective agent to achieve political change.

Here, in his own classic text on revolution, Che draws on his first-hand experience of the Cuban campaign to document all aspects of guerrilla warfare, from its aims to its organization and training. He analyses how in Cuba, against all odds, a small band of dedicated fighters grew in strength with the support of the people to defeat a dictator's army. Download and start listening now!

    " His picture hung in our kitchen when I was a child, and I adored him. His diaries made a lasting impression, of the sort of selflessness and righteousness I expected we could all emulate. "

    " The diaries give a facinating picture into the unromantic life of a guerilla freedom fighter, but it also shows some of the diffriculties, in training, supplying and administering a guerilla army in a fight for freedom in the jungles of South America. It was very sad to be reading this diary knowing that Che would never be allowed to finish his work because the CIA led Bolivian army mercenaries assassinated him and hid his body. Out of all of his diaries, I enjoyed the Motorcyle Diaries the best because it showed his gradually changing World view, and how he changed from a promising doctor to a World renowned freedom fighter. I also enjoyed his Cuban Revolution Diaries, for it showed his growing experience and learning curve in making up for mistakes and false starts, to finally freeing Cuba from a corrupt dictatorship. The best writing he did was on how to be a guerilla fighter, and how the US (imperialist) government systematically interfered with South American life and progress by inserting special forces rangers and supplies into different groups to insure their best corporate interests in the region. This included assassinations, beatings,torture, election rigging and propoganda. The speech that Che Guevara gave to the United Nations in 1964 is included in it's entirety, and it is facinating to listen to this man of letters argue that the US is in the wrong for attacking Cuba, blockading supplies and medicine, and for sending troops and money to different factions around the World to protect corporate interests, which by definition makes the United States Not a Protector of Freedom, but an imperialist war monger out to make a profit. It is interesting to find that because of this speech, Che and other Cuban Ambassadors were banned from the United Nations and other organizations, and yet because of the recent release of government documents we all now know that he was in the right with his speeches.

    " The motorcycle diaries are fantastic, but this diary reads like the rants of someone that's mentally gone. Still, I would have liked to have sat down and had a beer with Che and just shot the shit with him. "

    " This book was so cool... To actually read diary inputs from Che himself was interesting. "

    " I kept on borrowing an earlier edition of this book from UP's Main Library way back during my idealistic college years. Exciting and full of novel details, this book remains etched in my mind as an unfinished work crying for completion... "

    " Fascinating book of Guevara's travels to Bolivia to start a revolution. Insights into the difficulties he had there with the climate and lack of support from the populace. Great insight into his thinking and beliefs. "

    " Quite inspiring. Revolution is when you win. Rebellion when you lose. "

    " The reality of how he thought was pretty scary, very interesting "

    " This book is actually quiet sad to read knowing that Che is no longer alive. You'll see how bad a struggle may go if the proper help isn't given. "

    " This book was terrible. The first one was a waste of my time, and i made it half-way through this one before giving up on account of it being no different. "

    " interesting as far as primary historical documents go. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Anderson | 12/26/2012

    " Though Che is of great interest to me, reading his diary is like reading a gruesome and somewhat lonesome tale. I was expecting more emotional outpouring from Che. Perhaps I did not read far enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jesse | 7/4/2012

    " Interesting stuff, though without much personal context about the Revolution, etc., for me, it was mostly just the diary of a doomed, relentlessly optimistic man. "

    " Where is he when we need him? "

    " I read this because of my senior Thesis in College. I enjoyed it because I know quite a bit about the subject. It is not really exciting, but informative about Guevara's time in Bolivia leading to his death. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Broadsnark | 12/3/2011

    " Every time I read Guevara I dislike him a little more. Arrogant ass. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale | 11/24/2011

    " Not nearly as interesting as I had hoped. The guerrilla action and the politics behind it are fascinating, but The Bolivian Diary is just that: a diary. Good fodder for a historian, but not an absorbing read. "

    " Interesting, from a military/historical perspective. It's essentially a journal of his time in the Bolivian jungle, right before he died. Much less personal than The Motorcycle Diaries and less engaging. Still good, though. "
