Editorial Reviews


This is the most up to date and comprehensive guide I have ever seen for traveling to the Philippines....

There is much humor in this guide and reading it along with my Filipina wife, we found that there are many details, quotes, and suggestions as well as analysis of the culture which are truly entertaining to us....

I can wholeheartedly recommend CultureShock! Philippines to anyone planning to travel there, in fact I recommend you re-read it after you return - you'll be surprised at how helpful and accurate this guide was for your journey - and this guide will definitely be with me when I return again, lest there were any details I'd forgotten over time. --San Francisco Book Review, October 2009

About the Author

Now based in Sydney, Australia, freelance writer-painter Alfredo Roces was editor of GEO, Australasia's Geographical Magazine, from 1978 to 1991. A Filippino, he served as editor-in-chief of a ten-volume study on Philippine culture and history entitled Filipino Heritage (1978). He was a daily columnist for the country's leading newspaper, The Manila Times, for more than ten years, for which he gained a Columnist of the Year Award from the Citizens Council for Mass Media for 1971. Earlier he was cited as one of Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) in 1961 for his contribution to the study of Philippine culture. An artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Notre Dame in the USA, Alfredo has also authored various books. Grace Roces holds a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in Psychology from the University of Sydney. She then worked in the training field for 18 years designing training material for Westpac, AGC and other large organisations. In the year 2000, she obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Special Education from Macquarie University. Now a Special Education Teacher in a primary school in Sydney, she works with students who have reading difficulties. Grace grew up in Manila and moved to Australia with her co-author father and family in 1978. She is married to Howard Boorman and they have two sons, Damien and Alex.
