“Through the years of Chavez rule, the easiest writing approximately Venezuela in English seemed on a blogspot run by means of Venezuelan expats, Francisco Toro and Juan Cristobal Nagel. With preternatural timing, the authors of that web publication published a re-edited compilation in their best possible items within the very week of Hugo Chavez's demise. with a view to comprehend the deceased president's weird and wonderful regime, running a blog the Revolution, the book-form model of Caracas Chronicles, is where to start.”

- David Frum, contributing editor for Newsweek and The day-by-day Beast, CNN contributor.

“Caracas Chronicles has been an imperative resource of lucidity and viewpoint in those turbulent instances in Venezuela. Toro and Nagel were correct on course, with no pretending to be ludicrously neutral; they've been in a position to upward push above polarization, attempting demanding to make experience of a frequently fantastic fact. running a blog the Revolution indicates them at their top. while you are no longer already a fan, you'll develop into one.”
- Francisco J. Monaldi, RFK traveling Professor at Harvard Kennedy university and Director, heart on strength at IESA in Caracas.

“Caracas Chronicles is an extraordinary voice of sanity amid the cacophony of nonsense that's spouted day-by-day approximately Venezuela – a lot of it, unfortunately, through the folks imagined to be operating the rustic. an exceptional web publication, and now a ebook. learn it.”

- Phil Gunson, Caracas-based journalist and broadcaster.

“Caracas Chronicles is the easiest weblog approximately Hugo Chavez's Venezuela. Razor sharp, educated, witty, scholarly, irreverent and mainly clever; a useful map for a poorly charted land. it is no fan of the Bolivarian revolution, and does not declare to be neutral, yet avoids the foaming partisanship which infects rather a lot debate in regards to the subject. you come back to it for research and the writing finally ends up hooking you into unforeseen trips in the course of the revolution's surreal labyrinths. For an individual interested by Venezuela it is a must-read weblog. And now it is a must-read book.”

- Rory Carroll, writer of Comandante: Hugo Chavez's Venezuela, and The Guardian's former Latin the US bureau chief.
