    1. There are many ways to change, from simple to complicated Since then, Filipinos are aware of the bad changes and results that are happening to the society and many attempts to change it From local radio station, television, newspapers, programs, you can hear or read the volunteers speaking of changes And now, a Filipino lawyer, author, lecturer, philanthropist and politician is trying to change again Filipinos by discarding bad habits and trying to instill new ways to change the country into a [...]

    2. A masterpiece This book is one of the true definitions of a masterpiece It doesn t need to be as intriguing and beautiful as theMona Lisaby Leonardo da Vinci or as breathtaking asThe Pietaby Michelangelo to be considered as a masterpiece It doesn t need to be as successful as theHarry Potterseries that ll plunge you into another world of wizards and witches to be considered as a masterpiece It is a masterpiece in its own way A masterpiece, in my humble opinion, is a work of art that helps you in [...]

    3. Oftentimes we say that we are just one citizen and we cannot do anything about the problems of the country Wrong This book tells us Filipinos that there are twelve little things that we can do for our country.This little book was written by a lawyer in 2005 with the aim of having as many Filipinos read this so the language is simple and feels like written by a bright elementary or high school student I agree with some of my friends who thought that this could have been effective if written in T [...]

    4. Quoting Late President JFK, ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.That statement may have been uttered by an American President but nonetheless applicable to any citizen who really loves his motherland During the recent Presidential campaign for President Noynoy, this book reminded me how I a lone Filipino can still make a difference however small.The important thing to remember is that you can, if you want.Pay it forward, Filipino.

    5. This is a very good book It should be read by every FilipinoThat s what I suggest.The exposition tells 12 things that should be done to help our country rise up from obscurity The 12 things are actually simple things that we usually overtook, and by doing so, we miss some step on the ladder that hinders us to reach a monumental change That s why I think Alexander L Lacson had written the book He wanted to instill in us the simple social acts following traffic rules, asking for OR, avoiding to bu [...]

    6. It served as a real eye opener for me It urged me to make a step towards the right path that we Filipinos should take if we want to live in a great country I m not saying that the Philippines is a bad place to live in I m merely implying that we could live a better life if these small habits were corrected.The things listed in this book seems so insignificant but once you read the reasons why they are important, you would take a double look at yourself and ask yourself and others if they have be [...]

    10. Proud to be Pinoy Proud to be a Filipino Salamat kay Alexander L Lacson dahil muli niyang binuhay ang aking pagka Pilipino ngayong taon 2014 sa kabila ng mga balitang nagsasaad ng kawalan ng pagkaka isa, kawalan ng hustisya, korapsyon, kahirapan, krimen, patayan, atbp Dahil sa aklat na ito bibigyang solusyon ang bawat problema ng ating bansa at ang solusyon ay nauuwi sa ating pagkaka isa bilang Pilipino.Maganda ang kanyang mga ideya, adhikain, mga kasabihan, mga pagpapayo mula sa biblical passag [...]

    11. I felt like I was reading an essay written by a high school student Anyway, the 12 things were doable Afterall, they were little things But there was too much elaboration on each to do that the author tended to veer away from the topic.More people would probably read it if it was an article on the newspaper Or a blog entry That was easier cascaded Plus, you ll get the message through to a lot of people.At one point, I can t help comparing my reaction to my friends comments when that article tack [...]

    13. A good book, although not my cup of tea Maybe it s because of my cynicism, but I find this piece too optimistic Yes, following the Fallacy of Composition, the things written in this book is probable if and only if all of us do the things listed here But no, that s not the case Not even everyone can get a hold of this book Maybe someone should distribute copies of this book for free

    14. You ll get a fair share of tips from this little book about little things The items listed here are cliches follow the traffic rules, throw your garbage properly, pay your taxes, etc It could ve been better if this was written in Filipino so that matitigas ang ulong Filipinos would get it Or at least read it until the 30th page I don t have anything against cliches You know what, the 12 things listed here will indeed help to change this poor country If cliches are needed for change, then let al [...]

    15. I m not ready to read this book In theory it s a book every Filipino should read I agree with the concepts this book has 1 Do the little things2 In order to effect large scale changes, start with changing your habitsI just cant t take the advices to heart It asks me to trust the government but at the state our government is right now left and right corruption , it s kind of hard to do that The book made me annoyed rather inspired.
