"Equally useful for teens and adults, this book will be appreciated for the details and insights it provides into Filipino life."
"Rodell has produced a balanced and detailed description of a complex society with a tangled past and multifaceted culture that is of use to general readers, as well as to researchers looking for a scholarly introduction to the country…. Readers coming to this book will find not just a painstaking review of every major element of culture but also current observations of the social scene that take into account a wide variety of factors, from influences of geography and climate to circumstances of history to socioeconomic and political factors….For an analysis that provides both entertainment and depth, this book is to be commended."
