    I got to page 330, realized that the endless litany of Famous Latinos continued for 42 pages, and gave up I am willing to believe that the author s heart was in the right place I am willing to concede that I know some things now that I did not know before I read this book But this is not a good book, and I do not recommend it.I really, really hated this book The of it I read, the I hated it, and I will tell you why 1 The book is poorly written The author writes on the level of an undergraduate student, at best Her prose is full of cliches, and she makes her points clumsily and doesn t support them well Any author who uses the phrase Latin spice unironically in a history sociology book does not deserve to be taken seriously.2 The information is poorly organized Instead of presenting her information sequentially, Novas chose a hackneyed question and answer format that quickly becomes ridiculous Why did it take Cubans so long to gain their independence from Spain, and how was slavery a key factor 170 How reliable are Census 2000 figures when it comes to Americans with roots in Spanish speaking Central and South America 242 These are n...

    I actually loved this book Okay, granted, like some other reviews it was poorly organized, however, it was still informative, fun, and in respectful disagreement with some reviewers that said that the author was misinformed as to some information such as considering Pancho Villa a hero, because this is written by a Latina, the book is appropriately written Pancho Villa is absolutely considered a hero, by many in fact He is also considered a folk saint Certainly the book is not unbiased, but what is Authors write their opinions and personal feelings into their books all t...
