Se trata de una actualización necesaria al Manual del Perfecto Idiota Latinoamericano, en el que se diagnostica la idiotez latinoamericana de rechazar el liberalismo económico y de seguir aferrados al populismo empobrecedor.
Los autores han comprendido que la idiotez no nace en tierras de mestizos, sino que hunde sus raíces en próceres europeos y norteamericanos.
También era necesario corregir algunas apreciaciones del Manual. Contrariamente a las esperanzas del mismo, parece que la idiotez, lejo

los errores que tienen en los nombres e información dentro de los comentarios burlones que suelen tirar, me da a entender que sus ideas y comentarios surgen más de un conglomerado de otras lecturas que de su propio análisis.

siguiendo esa parte del análisis. falta incluir más datos y comparación de desarrollo (educación, economía y tecnología) en los procesos de transición de gobiernos de "izquierda" y su paso por la "derecha"... para no dejar sólo la cuestión de los datos como mera fuente de co

if you're young, hispanic, conservative, a spanish reader, and interested in the opinion of latin american politicians, .....anyone? anyone? Anyways, we, as Americans, should be grateful for what we have. This book helps you understand what it is like to live under socialist/communist countries (Cuba, Venezuela, etc). We make communism cool and chic but have no idea what those types of government systems do to a nation. Take off those Che Guevara t-shirts you ingrates, he stood for oppression. ...more

No la he terminado. Hay algunas partes con cuales estoy de acuerdo, pero la mayoría no me la puedo aguantar. No estoy de acuerdo con el análisis de la política de América Latina. Aparentemente, los escritores aprendieron las historias con la ayuda de los imbéciles como Ayn Rand, y para mi, eso ya basta para dejar de leer.

I currently became interested in Latin American politics. Being Hispanic and recently have read Che Guevara's biography I was curious to see the problems and solutions that exist in Latin America and how politics plays a role in that. I came across this book while at a book sale. I skimmed it and found it rather interesting so I decided to bring it home. I am super glad I did. My reading skills in Spanish are not the best so this book was a challenge every time I picked it up, as the Spanish is ...more

GREAT !!!

Spicy political humor, accurate descriptions and argumentations on why are the Latin American idiots back, who they are and what they want.

The authors may take this too personal, perhaps; but I believe this adds value to the book. Besides, they have not said yet that this work was just a description...

Un buen libro para considerar los tiempos y los grandes errores que está cometiendo América Latina. Si bien no podemos tomar este libro como una fuente certera de publicaciones o un trabajo académico, podemos decir que las opinión de los autores no pasa para nada desapercibida.

Ah, podes muy fácilmente retrucarle el 90% del libro si te pones las pilas. Aún así, una lectura muy placentera.

It is an accurate picture of some of the things happening in Latin America, it stricks hard the leftist governments but has a good point, the burden of populism on our countries..it is also a very good read for development buffs who want to deep their understanting on why some countries succeed and others struggle.
