I really appreciate the authors personal perspective. As a young Filipina she adds a unique voice on the topic of interracial relationships. She is very wise and the advice is excellent. Overall she paints a fairly grim picture of Filipino culture and I think she is too harsh in this regard. The writer really needs an editor, as there are endless spelling, grammar and punctuation issues. But, of course that is not what this book is about. Anyone interested in involving themselves romantically with a woman from the Philippines should read this book, it is truly an eye opener with a bit of a pessimistic bias.
Great book about Filipinas beacuse it is written by a filipina, unlike many other books written by men. Gives an excellent overview and explanation of what to expect when talking or dealing with filipinas. I found that many of the things the author mentions is true because I have been in a relationship with a filipina for the past 3 years and I found many similarities. I have also learned some things that I was not aware of, which I have discussed with my girlfriend, and she was surprised that I knew of these things. Highly recommended!!!
I follow Mira on you tuve and have just finished her book. I found it to be honest and refreshihing as she tells of life in the Phillipines She warns the foriegner visiting or planning to move to the Philipines of the scams from the women there that are looking to take advantage of the unwary. I would recommend this book to anyone regardless of nationality that is planning to moveto or visit there. In fact I would recommend this book for anyone planning a move to any foriegn country fot the purpose of marraige or dating. I am an expat living in Panama and can tell you that the same information in Mira's book can apply anywhere.
