En esta guía inspiradora sobre el poder, la doctora Ana Nogales ánima a las latinas para que trasciendan lo que se espera de ellas y se conviertan en las mujeres que desean ser, algo que lograrán al adoptar siete atributos que ellas han heredado instintivamente de la cultura latina:
El espíritu creativo
La apasionada resolución de la aguantadora
La habilidad para relacionarse de la comadre
La discreción de la diplomática
El valor de la atrevida
El equilibrio de la malabarista
La confianza de la reina
Cada capítulo presenta un elemento interactivo, un cuestionario para determinar cuán fuerte es cada atributo en la personalidad de la lectora y ejercicios para fortalecer cada atributo. Repleto de narraciones personales de latinas que han triunfado — como la novelista Isabel Allende, la presentadora de la televisión Cristina Saralegui, las congresistas Loretta y Linda Sánchez, la fundadora de la revista Latina, Christy Haubegger, y la cantante Jaci Velásquez — ¡Latina es poder! motiva a las lectoras a perseguir con ahínco sus propios sueños.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Lupe Ontiveros actriz Como decía mi madre, "Educa a un hombre y educarás a sus hijos; educa a una mujer y educaras generaciones." Este libro nos enseña que las latinas tenemos el poder de hacer eso precisamente.

Congresista Nydia M. Velázquez (Nueva York) ¡Por fin, un libro acerca de latinas, por latinas, para latinas! A través de las vidas de estas mujeres asombrosas, sabemos qué hace a las latinas lo que son hoy día. Sus vidas y sus historias nos proporcionan algo que todas las latinas necesitamos: inspiración pura.

Ruiz, founder and president of a Texas-based advertising agency specializing in the Latino market and one of the top Hispanic entrepreneurs in the country, according to Hispanic Magazine, has put together a 10-step plan for Latin American immigrants seeking to adapt to and succeed in the United States. Drawing from his personal experience, he effectively identifies the cultural differences that exist between Latin America and the United States. Success requires more than hard work, Ruiz cautions, and stresses the importance of education. He encourages readers to start by dreaming big. They should build relationships, ask for help when needed, explore their options, and take advantage of unexpected opportunities. Ruiz discusses individual rights and responsibilities while covering several important topics, such as schooling, banking, insurance, and taxation. He encourages serious use of the internet to find information on everything from educational savings plans to retirement. Readers will find useful contact information for key government departments, Latino organizations, and other associations arranged by topic in the appendixes. Highly recommended for public libraries and bookstores serving recent immigrants.
