a brief and fair historical overview
The book is great; the reading is terrible!
Certainly by the author; not necessarily by the reader, unless it were an all-English text.
Snelgrove unfortunately butchers most of the Spanish and French-language names and phrases in the book. With so many references to Cuban words, phrases, and historical personae, it seems it would have been worth the time to learn to pronounce them. This mispronunciation (sometimes drastic mispronunciation) takes away from the listening experience.
