    1. To be honest, I only read this book via e book as it is a partial requirement to pass an exam in the course PI10 The Life and Works of Rizal in the University of the Philippines Los Ba os The First Filipino was one of the few books that featured Jose Rizal in the best possible manner by showing not only the so so heroic side, but also the human side of Dr Jose Rizal It narrated Rizal s legend in the most detailed way, by far all including his sojourns, mishaps and numerous romances A lengthy boo [...]

    2. Rizal significantly shaped and continues to shape Philippine society as we know it This book will not only give you an idea of who Rizal really is, but also will help you understand why Philippine society is the way it is Through the reading of this book, one can conclude that to be Filipino is to be regionalistic That the only thing that binds us together is the similarities we assimilated from our colonizers which during Rizal s time was Christianity and Hispanization It was not Tagalog that b [...]

    3. I m privileged to be a part of a nation who has a man like Jose Rizal Though imperfect, he has lifted the spirits of the Filipinos in his generation and it is just apt to call him the First Filipino Reading this autobiography of his, I am moved with respect and admiration for this man s love and dreams for the Filipino as a people and as a nation This is a must read for the Filipino who would like to understand their roots hence, themselves better Through this masterpiece, I have appreciated and [...]

    4. I read this book for a class I m teaching on the historical imagination of the Philippine Revolution For contrast, I assigned this text together with John Nery s Rizal biography, Revolutionary Spirit Guerrero s version is extensive and includes longer quotes from Rizal s writings than Nery s Guerrero is also less careful about footnoting than Nery, probably because academic standards in the 1960s were less stringent than in 2011, when Nery s bio was published Given Guerrero s context, we should [...]

    5. I bought this book to suck up to my Rizal course instructor He loved this one and was recommending it every meeting So yeah, I bought this but I wasn t able to read it until 2 years later, yesterday This is a biography, a history book of some sorts, so people doesn t really expect me to read this I, a lover of fiction But hey, I teared up at the end The prose is engaging, of story telling than fact relaying and I really, really loved the article as to why the book was entitled The First Filipin [...]

    6. The book is not strictly chronological Narration is too stylistic rather than straightforward Does not contain illustrations Later editions do not include index If one wants a straightforward, chronological, comprehensive, with illustrations, then refer to Austin Craig s biography of Rizal.

    7. For all the years, studies and romanticisms of Rizal, he has somewhat remained, an enigma This is not surprising The vast number of scholars that have attempted a great many times to deconstruct and understand Rizal on his writings have fallibly tainted Rizal s political ideologies and perspectives in doing so Some even failed to see that what they have deconstructed was not Rizal, but an image hewn from themselves Some of this were, Agoncillo who regarded Rizal as a revolutionary reformist or r [...]

    8. It took a month trying to finish this comprehensive biography and there were times I doubted myself if I ll ever reach the next chapter I had too many in my plate lately and reading an important literature of my history got overwhelming with details and experiences This is an important book about a formidable person who should not remain mythical in textbooks I have been introduced to a fresh perspective of learning about Rizal and so as other heroes mentioned here They were those who fought and [...]
