    As with other reviewers of this book, I purchased this after being gripped by the Narcos series.I was really interested in what sort of person Pablo s son would be, having such an obscure upbringing The book is really well written and Juan really goes into detail in what a passionate, family man Pablo was despite being so violent and power hungry outside of family life.Juan frequently conflicts popular myths about his Father in this book and there are some really interesting additions to anything else I have read before.I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in Pablo, his son puts his story brilliantly and is clearly a man interested in peace and making the right decisions A person who s life could have taken a very different turn had his Father still be alive today.

    After watching Narcos I wanted to gain further information on what happened to the Escobar family.Browsing through I noticed this book written by Pablo Escobar s son.This is a well told account focussing on his family life and how he perceived his father and life after his fathers death.Would highly recommend to anyone that enjoyed the Narcos series.
