I decided to read this book out of sheer curiosity to compare what I know of my experiences there and what others gather from there.I have personally been to many provinces and municipalities in the Philippines over the years,and have been married to a woman from the Philippines for 10 years.I have know numerous people and have many friends from there.I can honestly tell you from experience that this author knows very little of the culture of the people of the Philippines.This author consistently repeats the same info over and over throughout the book.He mentions very little of the true character and loving nature of the people there,who would do anything for another and whom are very proud,dignified and respectful people.To say that Filipinas keep their boyfriends there for life is just utter ridiculousness and I have never heard of such a thing.Yes,there are scammers throughout the world,even very prevalent in the U.S. as well,but if you want true ,credible advice about traveling to the Philippines,there are many far more credible guidebooks written than this over exaggerated paranoid distorted version. This author also writes books on how to seduce women,so one should question his integrity and character.One of the biggest warning flags for me was when the author rambles on about how to "make a woman agree with you nearly all the time".He states that "unless you can make a woman agree with you,winning her heart is almost nil".He tells men to "be in charge all the time",tell her things that would blow her mind and appear the expert in subjects that she knows little about,so as to create feelings of inferiority in her".You have got to be kidding me.What a load of pure crap!

Very enjoyable. In this book the author paints a broad picture of the political, social and scenic features of the Philippine Islands. The first part of the book outlines some of the many hazards that may be encountered in traveling to the Philippines. A lot of cautions and warnings about kidnapping and car -jacking and other crimes will no doubt raise real concerns, and keep the traveler very much aware of his surroundings .The author also takes some time to explain the inability of the government to provide adequate protection and that some areas are better left not visited. From criminal hazards to social ones regarding members of the opposite sex may also give pause to Philippine travel. Unusual ties between women and their former boyfriends will certainly be new to the Western man. The fact that a Filipino woman will put her family ahead of any other consideration will also be a fact that the Western man must be willing to accept. Strong warnings must also be issued regarding the common practice of requests for aid or money. This is a favorite ploy of many scam artists. Despite all this doom and gloom the islands do have a lot of very beautiful, scenic places to enjoy. Miles of white sand beaches, snorkeling in crystal clear water. Hiking, horseback riding and all the other typical tourist attractions are there to be enjoyed. This books presentation of seduction techniques can be applied to any amorous adventure and will provide much insight to becoming a successful pursuer. I was pleased to discover that the author and I agreed on many of the ways to attain success.
Very informative book that provides what many books on the Philippines do not - a look at the dark side, specifically crimes against tourists and locals. The author spends a great deal of time throughout the book instilling the safety issue while traveling throughout the Philippines and how to guard against such things as corrupt taxi drivers, and how to avoid kidnapping and scams. There is also information on the illegal drug, gun, and organ trade and how the criminals use tourists (and locals) unsuspectingly. The book also deals with filipina women and how they are different from what you might expect. Overall, I enjoyed reading the book for its informational value and learning about how to keep myself safe when I go to visit my filipina girlfriend. I also learned which areas to stay away from as well as some great spots to visit while I am there. Definitely worth the few dollars that it is selling for!
