The Human Manual is based on the premise that understanding is the missing step in the process of EVERYTHING we do. Since early childhood, we've come to learn that it's important for us to understand how something works in order to fix it if it's not working. Our bodies are the same way. Before we can fix something that's broken (i.e. that mysterious pain), we need to understand what's really going on. Authority figures merely address the symptoms and not the true concern. No one has explained chronic pain as simply and directly as The Human Manual does. In this book co-writers Jeffrey and Sheryll show you how to look at the source of your pain and discover real solutions that avoid costly and unnecessary prescription medication, surgery and/or therapy. By simply replacing bad habits with good habits and using some of the tips offered in The Human Manual, you too can learn the secrets to instant pain relief and stop suffering!

メキシコ人の流入は、メキシコ系アメリカ人に「微妙な態度」ambivalent attitudeを与えた。一般的に、メキシコ人の流入は、メキシコ系が達成してきた成果に悪影響を与えると信じられてきた。他方では、同じ伝統文化や慣習を共有する「仲間」であるという意識がある。歴史的には、戦時に開始されその後も長期に継続された「ブラセロ計画」による大量のメキシコ人の流入がメキシコ系のコミュニティに与えた悪影響は、メキシコ系の記憶に残っている。
