Tony Burton’s recently published Mexican Kaleidoscope is a whirlwind trip through some of the underpinnings of Mexican culture, told with humour, affection and well-documented facts.

How much richer my experiences would have been had I been able to take this user-friendly and easily carried tome of gems with me when I was in Mexico.
