The suggestions on the book cover pre-reading, during reading, and after post-reading strategies.

This handbook “diagnoses” common vocabulary and grammatical errors (both in speech and in writing) made by Spanish speakers and “prescribes cures” to avoid these recurrent problems.

From the Olmec civilization to present times, Ms. Blair offers her personal perspective on the history of México and provides a fundamental guide to understanding the evolution of the country.
