"Cuba's Primer combines the story and insight into Gonzalo's life while at the same time sharing some history of the country. I was moved by the passion and courage of Gonzalo and his family, and sobered by the reality of life under a dictator. I highly recommend this book."

"Mr. Fernandez writes in an easy to follow style, interspersing historical events with personal anecdotes. It is interesting to note how he has objectively placed himself within the various settings, while still understanding the "big picture" as Cuba was changing from a capitalist dictatorship to a socialist one. For those young, urban Cuban Americans (yucas), this book will fill in many gaps as to what their parents told them and what they fail to understand as to why the situation went so tragically wrong! The book also provides an explanation as to why after 50 years, Castro's system of governing still has not provided the "complete revolutionary man" that he promised during the transition period. Indeed, the fact that Cuba's greatest export are refugees and dissidents is explained well in Mr. Fernandez's book. For those uninformed about the realities of living under a communist dictatorship, the details expressed here will increase your awareness. For those wishing to review what went wrong, when it did so and if the situation has any promise for improvement, the author will address these concerns. In short, "Cuba's Primer-Castro's Earring Economy" will educate, provoke thought and resolve unanswered questions!"
