Has anyone seen or heard of these books before? My father in law sent them to me. One of them is printed in Tagalog, but it has pictures! They're pretty intereseting.

Yes, I have an english copy of the second edition. I Think that MARPPIO is now spearheading the third edition printing as we speak with new pictures.

Terry,

Your exactly right. On the back of the book there is a big National Bookstore logo. Not only do they sell books, but they also publish/print. Production quality leaves some to be desired, but as you mentioned, for a couple bucks its well worth the price. I had no idea that people were paying that much for this little book. I guess people tend to take advantage if your an avid Presas fan and can't get to the PI or don't have connections there.

I read the English version and I find it very informative and I like it. One of my original instructors, had a copy of the book. I hope to get a copy here real soon for myself. :)

Terry,

Do you have access to where these books are sold? I know that Prof. Presas wrote a book in Tagalog prior to any of his English books and that is the one missing from my collection.

Yours,
Dan Anderson
