Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0609806963, Paperback)Do you speak in English but dream in Spanglish? Do you crave homemade tortillas but end up buying them ready-made at the supermarket? Is your papi chulo a blue-eyed gringo, or do you have a Latin lover whose español is better than yours? Listen up, hermanas: Today’s Latina is a bicultural mamita who lives and loves in two worlds—and one of them is brimming with rich ethnic traditions and strong ties to home and familia. If you feel torn between these two worlds, and if you’ve been looking for un libro that will help you bridge the gap between the old-world ways of your mamá, tías, and abuelitas and the world of opportunities in the twenty-first century, then The Latina’s Bible is the book para tí! With warmth, humor, and I’ve-been-there wisdom, author Sandra Guzmán tackles the real-world complicaciones that many Latinas face today, including:
* The Latina sexual mystique—plus the truth about interracial dating and marriage
* Finding professional success by networking Latina-style
* Surviving your mother—without going loca!
* Taking care of yourself, body and soul
The Latina’s Bible is a rich mix of real-life solutions, down-home dichos, inspiration, and support—the bedside companion no mujer should be without!

A dynamic icon of Hispanic femininity & power offers her fellow Latinas a richly packed "bedside companion" filled with hip, useful & mush-have advice on topics ranging from relationships & family to money, careers & friendship. Of the 30 million Latinos in the United States today, more than 11 million are women between the ages of 18 and 35. These women proudly proclaim their Latin heritage -- as they embrace the new world of opportunities in the 21st century. Designed for the bicultural, bilingual woman, The Latina's Bible teaches how to bridge the gap between traditions and expectations at home and modern American life, without giving up roots, values, and traditions.
