La Breve Historia de Fidel Castro es un repaso histórico de la vida del líder cubano desde la perspectiva de un periodista también cubano que participó activamente en la Revolución y que ha sido testigo directo de muchos de los hechos que cuenta.En este libro se detallan algunos aspectos oscuros de su vida. Por ejemplo, la implicación de Fidel en la muerte del Che y en la oportuna desaparición de Camilo Cienfuegos. También se describen algunos casos de corrupción del régimen, como, por ejemplo, el episodio referido al tráfico ilícito de drogas que se coordinaba desde las oficinas centrales del Ministerio del Interior.Juan Carlos Rivera Quintana narra el desarrollo improvisado y pragmático del proyecto político de Fidel Castro, su repercusión mundial y las consecuencias internas para el pueblo cubano. Esta obra no deja de lado ningún hecho importante de la vida de Fidel Castro: el asalto al Cuartel Moncada, el viaje en el Granma y el desembarco en Sierra Maestra, el ascenso al poder, la invasión de Bahía de Cochinos y la victoria de Playa Girón, la crisis de los misiles, la participación en la Guerra de Angola, la visita del Papa, la enfermedad de Fidel y la cesión del poder a su hermano Raúl.
