You'll thrill to the tribulations of a glowing corporate citizen. You'll be awed by the transition of the company from "Cuban Nationalism in a bottle" to multi-national corporate behemoth. You'll probably plow through an entire bottle of Bacardi while you're reading it. Everybody wins!

My father and his parents lived in Cuba during World War II before coming to the U.S. He picked up the Spanish language which served him well for the rest of his life.

Today Cuban society today represents an effort to build an alternative to the way life was under the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, who ran Cuba before Fidel Castro led a revolution there. No one complained about a lack of human rights and democracy in those days, but U.S. businesses were protected.

Some things work, some don’t. Like any society, Cuba its flaws and contradictions, as well as having some solid achievements. No society is perfect. But we can certainly learn a few things from Cuba’s experience. If we want to talk about bringing freedom to Cuba, how can we do that if we're not free to go and see it for ourselves? Cuba is the only country on earth for which people from the United States need a permission slip from the federal government to go for a visit.
