    Mostly I want to know why, as of this writing, this book only has three ratings. Yes, the book only officially came out last week, but we’ve all seen books with dozens if not hundreds of ratings before the official pub date. “A Good Provider” is as entertaining as it is incisive, and ...

    Very good book. Here's the review to read: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/20/bo... Author DeParle has been following this Filipino family for over 30 years! Don't miss the sweet photo from 1987, when he started all this. Filipinos are some of the superstars in the global migrant economy, and their ...

    A story of one family of immigrants from the Philippines. The family ends up in the Middle East en route to America and DeParle follows their journey to assimilate to America and he infuses the story with a sprinkling of stats and facts about immigration....
