Recommended for: Anyone who loves or hates Mexicans, or is even just slightly curious about Mexicans...:-P
Read in August, 2007

The author of this book write a Q-&-A column for the OCWeekly newspaper called "Ask a Mexican," and "the Mexican" answers any & all questions about everything & anything Mexican. It's funny, rather insightful, sarcastic and blunt. Very no-holds-barred. And rather 99.9% correct. (The .1% is deducted for subtle variances with language...otherwise, very good to go!) My Mexican boyfriend & I are both enjoying it -- I'm reading it, and I share parts with him and we discuss them...often, laughing, too. :) It's giving him some food-for-thought about his own culture, making me compare & contrast with my own non-Mexican culture, and talking about current events with Mexicans...I recommend it. :)
