Book Review

To be honest, I am not really that excited to read it at first. I was like "Filipinos can change the world? Really?" and I was astounded when I found out that this book is written by a foreigner, an Irish to be specific. Every reason was discussed briefly but the thought was still there. He even discussed a part of the Philippine history. And to think that a foreigner wrote it, I can say he is very observant and he really knew Filipinos. It is maybe because he stayed here for quite a long time now. 

I was smiling the entire time that I read the book since as a Filipino, I know that all of the reasons he shared are true. I know because I can tell that I also do those things and I have those traits as a Filipino. With that I can already tell that this book is effective. As I read this book and rediscover why I am unique as a Filipino, I can agree that Filipinos really can change the world. The author even believes that living in the Philippines makes him a better person. If he sees the good in us, then why can't we? We should also see the good in us, being a Filipino, and we shouldn't be ashamed to be one. 

I asked my cousin who lives in the U.S for almost 10 years now on why is she proud to be a Filipino and she answered, "I am proud to be a Filipino because of the so many characteristics that define us such as being hospitable, helpful, cheerful, industrious, optimistic and a lot more. And we've been proven these characteristics from our people in our history." I didn't say anything to her. I just asked her that question and I told her it is something for my blog. It surprised me that her answer has connections with the 7 Filipino values that I read from the book. I can say she is indeed proud as a Filipino just as I do.

I highly recommend this book for everyone especially for us, Filipinos. This book can possibly change your thinking in being a Filipino. It can remind you what Filipinos are known for. This book is so worth it. So for my dear Filipino readers, let me ask you.

Are you proud to be a Filipino? Why?

Lastly, I would like to thank the author, Mike Grogan, for writing an inspirational book dedicated for Filipinos and for seeing the good in every Filipino. Also, I would like to thank him and Ms. Mary for sending this book and trusting me. I do appreciate it very much.

  1. Filipinos are truly know for their hospitability. Kahit ako na Pilipino, nabibilib ako sa kapwa ko Pilipino eh. Very friendly and accommodating. Lalo kapag nagtatravel, despite the dialect/language barriers, they're willing to converse. Tapos kahit stranger ka, at nagtanong ka ng directions, tutulong talaga sila sayo.
