Traveler's Philippines Companion
I just finished reading the chapter entitled ďThe Country and Its PeopleĒ in Travelerís Philippines Companion. I consider it to be one of the best, if not the very best, accounts and analyses of the history of a nation that Iíve ever read. My wife, who is Filipino, said it is easily superior in breadth and depth to what she learned in school. Impressively, it accomplishes this in a most succinct fashion. I never expected to find such a treasure in a travel book. I now feel much enlightened on the subject and therefore well primed to appreciate the country Iím about to visit.---Amazon.com Reader Review
