After checking out the Amazon page for the book, it was clear Joe was getting killed by dozens of negative reviews from SJW’s and feminists. Almost none of them are verified purchases, and it’s a wonder Amazon hasn’t removed them—although on the other hand some are asking for this book to be taken down entirely because it’s ‘offensive’.
This is just another example of censorship and male shaming.
Had these critics actually purchased the book for the mere $2.99 (the price when I originally purchased it), they would have seen on the first page a disclaimer saying that the book was done to be funny. It’s even listed in the ‘Humor’ category.
Chicaspotting requires a sense of humor. So, if you’re a sanctimonious dullard or cranky social justice warrior who’s easily offended by colorful talk about women and ethnicity, put this book down, save your money, and go back to making the world a little less free and enjoyable for everyone else. This book is not intended for you.
What is Chicaspotting?
Chicaspotting is a pretty self-explanatory activity—it’s spotting a chica, and then trying to deduce as much about her as you can just by her appearance. Some would claim this is racist, sexist, or other ‘ists’, though I’d have to disagree.
Chicaspotting is not actually not a challenging task as Bovine demonstrates. In fact, just prior to buying this book, I did some chicaspotting of my own:
I was able to figure this out as I had dated a Colombian girl before and this girl looked similar (that luscious dark black hair is always a giveaway). I picked Bogota as it was the most natural choice—it was almost like doing magic.
The benefit of being a skilled chicaspotter is that it sets you above other gringos. It shows that you have an understanding of different Latin cultures and Latin women.
In fact, I’d argue that not being a skilled chicaspotter is simply ignorant! Women, like the above girl, appreciate American guys who don’t assume every girl is from Mexico.
What to Expect From This Book
Joe clearly did ‘extensive research on this book—I am quite envious of that! Through his research he clearly extracted a lot of information. The profile for each Latina lady is quite thorough, and based on what I’ve experience, quite accurate.
He breaks different Latina’s from each country down by categories like promiscuity, maintenance, and desire to build a family. Definitely a useful tool for the man looking to make the acquaintance of these girls. My big takeaway from the book was that Latina’s are into white guys who can a.) Dance and b.) Aren’t boring–I need to step my salsa game up.
Though the book is quite short—you can knock it out in an hour or so—it does a great job of what it set out to do. It’s well put together in terms of artwork and data that it is well worth a read.
