Contrary to what the title implies, this book is not about agriculture, rather, the author uses examples from agriculture to make the point that Fidel Castro is a delusional fool, a modern Don Quixote, who has "sunk Cuba into a sea" of misery and dispair. Agriculture in this book is loosely defined. Can one say that building a room where only the heads of the cows are exposed to air conditioning so as to increase their milk production is an agricultural activity? Can one claim that a single cow can produce milk for thousands of people?.These follies actually took place and they are very well documented. It has been said that the problem with a socialist economy is that the leaders eventually run out of other people's money. However, time and again, as shown in this book, the Castro brothers have managed to find the money to subsideize Fidel's follies. By theft, charity and dfaulted debt, they have kept their failing socialist experiment afloat for over close to six decades. You will be a believer after you read this book!
