While the history of Puerto Rico is very interesting, this book is not very well written. It exists in this confusing conundrum of both assuming that one has little knowledge of Puerto Rican history and a lot. However, despite its flaws, it works fine as an overview of Puerto Rico's history.

Somehow, Picó manages to make the history of Puerto Rico pretty boring. Its truly unfortunate and as a Puerto Rican I am disspointed. Picó's writing seems lax and superficial.

This is a very complete look at the history of the island. The picture starts with the very formation of the land; and ends in 2005; when the form of government is shared with the USA. It reviews every possible aspect of the people of Puerto Rico: their culture; their economics; their diet; where they come from and why they are the way they are. Puerto Ricans are a very special kind of human beings: their philosophy of life is a mixture between the fishermen (why work if I have eaten today) and ...more

Resume muy bien la historia de Puerto Rico. Se lo recomiendo a cualquiera que quiera conocer esta magnífica historia de este gran pueblo. Lo único que no me gustó es que en algunas partes se enfocó demasiado en datos no tan importantes como las cantidades exactas de exportación de tal y tal material, también no hablo tanto de los años más recientes como hablo de siglos pasados. Si te gusta la historia léelo.

Excelente síntesis de la Historia de un país aún en formación. Es un libro que todo puertorriqueño debe leer, al ser un resumén de muchos siglos de historia claramente hay temas que no son tan ampliamente tratados. Es un libro de referencia que nos adentra en nuestra historia y nos anima a buscar y conocer más de ella.

Recommended to Mel by: it was a class requirement
This book its sort of a condense view on the history from Puerto Rico, from it ecological beginnings to more contemporary times. Really good reading. (My copy is in Spanish)
