"I found it highly readable, most comprehensive, and flawlessly organized. I think it's the best book of its kind that I have read, and I have been down here for 25 years."
Alejandro Grattan-Dominguez
Editor-in-Chief, El Ojo del Lago Magazine

"I've lived at Lakeside for ten years now, and coordinate the Information Desk at the Lake Chapala Society. Yet I'm amazed at how much I learned reading this book. I fully intend to keep a copy at the Information Desk, and suggest all the volunteers familiarize themselves with it."
Harriet Hart
Lakeside writer

"I thoroughly enjoyed the read. I wish I had your book available when I moved here 8 years ago. It certainly would have made life simpler and more interesting."
Howard Feldstein
President, Lake Chapala Society

"A valuable resource for anyone visiting or moving to Lake Chapala. If you can, buy it before you come. At the very least, buy it the moment you arrive. Having this book when I moved here 11 years ago would have saved me many missteps and countless hours of research."
Judy Dykstra-Brown
Lakeside writer and artist
