I think this is a fun take on Bahamians. If you have ever lived in the Bahamas or any other Caribbean island you will probably appreciate this book.

Funny and true to life musings on Bahamian life. I know this because my mom is from the Bahamas. I just wish I had known about this book sooner.

If you are Bahamian, or know anyone who is, this book will have you rolling on the floor in laughter! The author gets right to the core of what (the good and the bad) makes Bahamians culturally unique in the world. Hilarious!
