As an argentinian woman, I can say most of the statements in this book are really really true. Although it emphasis more on the life of Buenos Aires, the customs, family life, ways of doing friends goes around the whole country. I deffinitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to know us better and come to visit us down in South America!
