About the Author

Bill Santiago is a native Spanglish speaker who became a stand-up comedian after narrowly escaping a career in journalism. With the premiere of his first special, Comedy Central Presents Bill Santiago, his mother finally stopped asking him to go to law school. He has appeared on The Late Show with Conan O’Brien, and his work has been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Miami Herald, Los Angeles Times, Boston Herald, Philadelphia Inquirer, and San Juan Star. When not on stage, he enjoys curling up with a good book or a well-read, Spanglish-speaking woman. He lives in New York City.

You need to be a latino to understand what he is talking about and you will find yourself saying "that is so true".

This book is a complete hoot. Not just for the Spanish/English bilingual but for all who would like to know how speak The Habla. If you want to see Spanglish at first hand just go to Miami airport and listen. I first came across Spanglish a few years ago when ordering breakfast in the said airport. "Que queres comer for breakfast mijo" The immense possibilities of Spanglish blew my cerebro. Bill Santiago brings the whole concept of Spanglish to life for all to enjoy and speak, plus it has the added bonus of hilarious commentaries by an obviously funny guy. Excellent, highly recommended para todos.

This booko esta demasiado funny pero con exageración! Es increíblemente genial y le doy las gracias a Bill por haber compartido con nosotros el detalle del "Habla" con sus explicaciones locas pero useful a la vez. Sinceramente its been a long time coming. El sazón de las paginas con su everyday spanglishicity is totally off the chancla! I didn't realize how much of the Habla I actually use throughout my day! I love it, love it, love it! Definitivamente I give it DIEZ estrellas... It is a wonderful conversation starter para todos to enjoy while chilaxeando con sus panas. So get out there y compren este libro... ¡Porque Because! CHEPA

From start to finish this book esta muy hilarious! Bill is a genious and finds the best humor in the Spanglish culture. I loved the part where he says the Pompilates exercise video for your pompis is even more popular than the Nalgas of Steel, and I just couldn't stop laughing with his "porque because" response, among many other funny Spanglish situations. This is a must have and makes a great gift for anyone. You want to know why? Porque because.

Bill Santiago es el embajador al mundo de Spanglaterra. Te reirás, you'll cry, you'll learn to cambiar de velocidad en la mitad de un sentence. Como dijo el pundit Enríque Cerse, no solo vale la pena leerlo, sino que it's worth the price comprarlo.

I got this book and could not put it down for days. Every Spanglish speaking person should buy and read "Pardon My Spanglish." Excellent writing y Bill es super chistoso! Now I know why I speak like I do. Finally alguien me lo explicó!! Every chapter is loaded with funny examples of the "Habla" and experiences you can all relate to. His Spanglish translation of Gloria Gaynor's hit "I Will Survive" will have you cracking up all day. Bill is definitely one of the best comedians out there, catch him on tour if you can and get this book in the meantime. Must read!!
