Read from September 21 to October 03, 2011

You have to be a serious fan of Mexico and things Mexico to read all of this. Since I am only mildly, even tangentially interested in Mexico, I kept getting bogged down by the data, most of it reading like a sociology text. I read the first quarter rather carefully, the next quarter less carefully, and the last half I skimmed, looking for the interesting parts. A reader with a major interest in Mexico and the Mexican character would probably get more out of this book. If you are not that reader, then beware of getting bogged down and lost in the swamp of data.
