Rough Guides are written by expert authors who are passionate about both writing and travel. They have detailed knowledge of the areas they write about--having either traveled extensively or lived there--and their expertise shines through on every page. It's priceless information, delivered with wit and insight, providing the down-to-earth, honest read that is the hallmark of Rough Guides. Matthew Norman first visited Cuba in 1995 when he spent a year living with a Cuban family in Centro Habana and taking courses at the University of Havana. He lives in South London and is the co-author of The Rough Guide to Cuba.
