Now I've just completed the first draft of "How to Live a Caviar Lifestyle on a Tuna Fish Pension at Safe, Beautiful, & Affordable Lake Chapala Mexico!". Looking forward to getting to know each of you. Tu amigo, Sid

If anyone was looking for Meet The Mexicans you won't find it. The title changed to Modern Mexico Through the Eyes of Modern Mexicans. It is finally published after two years of writing and five of research. That is a long gestation period.

Modern Mexico is a collection of people from different economic and social backgrounds talking about what it is like to be a Mexican today. It is published by the University of Texas, Pan American.

I believe Tracy below made a valid point. Communication is not just language. However, I have found (in my 40 years of traveling Mexico, including a couple of stints as a businessperson) that Mexicans are far more forgiving than Estadounidenses about cultural gaffes. I found Europeans to be less forgiving. That is not to justify ignorance, but to lower the fear level of newcomers to Mexico about saying or doing the wrong thing. A book like hers is more valuable than any guide book, in my opinion.

"Intercultural Communication: A Practical Guide"
by Tracy Novinger
Successfully communicating with people from another culture requires learning more than just their language. While fumbling a word or phrase may cause embarrassment, breaking the unspoken cultural rules for personal interactions can spell disaster. This practical guide will help you decipher and follow those "rules", particularly in regard to communication between persons from Mexico and their neighbors to the North. The book concludes with nine effective, reliable principles for successfully communicating across cultures.

Hi everyone,

If you are planning a trip to Guanajuato or just want to know more about the city, I want to recommend my husband's (Doug Bower) newest book, "A Walk Through Mexico's Crown Jewel: A Guanajuato Travelogue," available at, your local bookstore, or through our web site (

We co-authored a book called, "The Plain Truth about Living in Mexico," also available at or your local bookstore. Our second book, "Guanajuato: Mexico" is similar to "The Plain Truth" but specific to Guanajuato. Either might be of help to you if you are planning to move to Mexico.

Doug writes a blog ( to which I make regular contributions. He also continually updates our web site with new information about Guanajuato and Mexico in general. I hope you'll check out the books, the blog and the web site.

If any of you have questions about Guanajuato or about living in central Mexico, please feel free to ask me. I'd be happy to try to help you.

Hi fellow authors,
I am currently working on a book about the Plants of Baja California Sur and would appreciate any assistance and advice regarding publishing.
It is a work in progress. Many of the plants are shown on my website
Comments welcome.

I have an ebook titled RETIRE TO MEXICO-20 Questions You Need To Answer. It is doing OK, but the recent misinformation and scare tactics about Mexico is hurting sales. I will send a copy to travel and real estate professionals who deal with people thinking about moving to Mexico. Just ask by email.
