    1. Even though this is a sympathetic view of Ortega, Morris doesn't hold back in exposing his major short comings.He does a good job of reviewing Nicaraguan history, especially the early 1980s and mid 1990s. I wish he would have went more Ortega's role with Union leaders in the 90s but for a short read, you can't get everything.Ortega ultimately does seem to have a concern for the poor, and is an anti imperialist crusader, however, raping his stepdaughter, and him feeding into some of the corruptio [...]


    2. Written from a left-wing but non-Danielista point of view, this book provides an overview of the Sandinista revolution and Ortega's early life but focuses more on his recent activities as president of Nicaragua and the domestic opposition. Rumors of sexual abuse are dealt with but left inconclusive. An interesting read, but not detailed enough about Ortega's first terms as president for my taste.


    3. A very fascinating read - not only is this book a biography about Daniel Ortega but is a comprehensive history lesson about the revolution and politics in Nicaragua since his birth. Told from a somewhat anti-U.S. perspective, this book was a great (in my case) introduction to politics and history in Nicaragua, especially as someone interested in understanding perspectives far different from those predominant in the U.S.


    4. Una biografia de el ahora que otrora fuera parte de la Junta de gobierno y que es ahora presidente de Nicaragua. El analisis de la historia de Nicaragua que hace el autor es bastante realista, me ha parecido uno de los mejores narradores de la historia de Nicaragua, sin muchos biases.


    5. a strong 3 stars. Though some may argue that Morris if overly sympathetic to Ortega, he does present the good with the bad in the midst of the very complex recent history of Nicaragua.My copy was a gift through First Reads.


    6. It's an interesting read, but the writer is obviously a huge fan of Ortega, the book is skewed heavily in favour of everything he does. A good history of the revolution in Nicaragua though.I won this from a giveaway
