An irreverent, hilarious, and informative look at Mexican American culture is taken by a rising star in the alternative media, as well as a new kid on the block in such mainstream venues as NPR, the Los Angeles Times, Today, and The Colbert Report. Gustavo Arellano has compiled the best questions about Mexican Americans from readers of his ¡Ask a Mexican! column in California's OC Weekly and uses them to explore the clichés of lowriders, busboys, and housekeepers; drunks and scoundrels; heroes and celebrities; and, most important, millions upon millions of law-abiding, patriotic American citizens and their illegal-immigrant cousins who represent some $600 billion in economic power.More

Good but long
Reading Butchers Spanish and Spanglish
Yes. I do not like the strong language, however, it does provide a lot of good information.
There are two narrators. They both butcher the Spanish and Spanglish. It is hard to listen to and not nearly as funny as it would be if someone who knew how to pronounce things were to narrate the book.
