This was the textbook that we used in our mandatory Philippine History course in university. I don't know where my copy is now (I need to look for it in some forgotten box somewhere), but I remember how informative this book was, and not in a boring way.

Paano ko mababasa?
Required reading for my History class back in college. I used to despise reading this because it felt like a chore, knowing that I need to remember details for the exams. I want to read it again and enjoy it this time.

Teodoro A. Agoncillo (November 9, 1912 – January 14, 1985) was one of the pre-eminent Filipino historians of the 20th century. He and his contemporary Renato Constantino were among the first Filipino historians who earned renown for promoting a distinctly nationalist point of view of Filipino history (nationalist historiography). He was also an essayist and a poet.
