Publisher's Summary

En las escuelas mexicanas se incuba la mediocridad. Los actuales libros de texto gratuitos de historia deliberadamente engañan, manipulan, y ocultan la realidad de lo acontecido en nuestro país, condenando a México al estancamiento. 

¿Cómo avanzar si insistimos en inculcarle a las nuevas generaciones de mexicanos escandalosas mentiras redactadas en beneficio del gobierno en turno? ¿Por qué se atenta cínicamente contra los preceptos constitucionales de calidad y laicidad en la educación? ¿Por qué difundir una versión de la historia que favorece a la reacción, al clero y a los intereses de nuestros vecinos del norte? ¿Por qué ocultar el rostro y las actividades perniciosas de algunos de los grandes enemigos de México?  

Alejado de la ficción y apegado al rigor histórico, Francisco Martín Moreno revela en este ensayo algunas de las falsedades, embustes, y omisiones difundidas en estos libros de texto por la dolosa historia oficial, convencido de que sólo a través del conocimiento y de la educación, se puede cambiar el destino del país y escapar a tiempo de la ruta hacia la colisión.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Editorial Review

México engañado, de Francisco Martín Moreno, es un ensayo de política basado en hechos reales de la historia de su país, que cuestiona las versiones confusas y maquilladas de algunos libros de texto gratuitos.
Con el paso de los años, un mexicano puede darse cuenta de que la Historia de México cambia según el gobierno que ejerce el poder.
Sin mirar y sin pensarlo, la Historia de México siempre se ha servido de bienes que satisfacen a los países vecinos del Norte. Aquellas guerras del pasado, con sus triunfos y derrotas, son las que dan ahora una visión de mundo que muchos se han encargado de rehacer o manipular a partir de falsedades, de tal manera que un pueblo puede convertirse en un hijo de la mediocridad o la esperanza.
"En las escuelas mexicanas se incuba la mediocridad", sentencia en este bestseller el autor, que está en contra de la manipulación y representación histórica como productos didácticos para hacer o deshacer a conveniencia.
Esta obra te puede ayudar a abrir los ojos, a quitar la neblina del camino acerca de cómo conocías la Historia de un país al que hace mucho le borraron la sonrisa, estancado en una visión del clero que sale a las calles con una bandera de Dios enrollada en sus costillas.
No esperes encontrar aquí otra novela histórica. El título está muy lejos de ser un relato ficticio sobre un periodo específico en el tiempo. Tampoco es el sitiodonde una opinión pueda producir un encontronazo sobre los grandes enemigos de México.
A través de sus páginas y sus 27 horas de audiolibro, México engañado solo trata de dar forma a la verdad.

Good Reading

What a Mexican should know, but it was not taught at school due to a PRI syndrome. Although, it is good to know an overall history of Mexico, let's not forget that each individual is responsible for her/his well-being. Nowadays, globalization is changing the landscape of tomorrows economy. It is a great criticism to Mexicans government that should seek the well-being of many instead of its own. Thank you!

Good, taught provoking audio for Spanish speakers willing to listen to an alternative point of view.

Overall very good book which is clearly in opposition to the government’s version of history and a lot of times the lack of. This is definitely an opinionated book, with the author establishing education as the potential saver and problem solving element to the many issues Mexico face. Yes it is very long, but not unnecessarily so.

The author asserts future Mexican generations are bound to make the same mistakes again and again, because the government was unable or purposefully do not show Mexican history as it a actually happened in school.

The author clearly points to the catholic clergy as the source of all major issues in Mexico starting from the Spanish colonization to the very present. Catholic priest and the Vatican it self are blamed for manipulating and making the Mexican government corrupt and inefficient purposefully. As the author mention, Catholic Church in Mexican history behave as a State within a State and willing to do anything simply for financial and power gains.

The author mention United States as another source further holding Mexico back, at times with the assistance of Mexican Catholic Church. The author rightfully remind the listener half of Mexico was clearly stolen by the USA and assisted by the very Mexican government via debt, unnecessary war and multiple military incursions from the US military to Mexico.

With that said the author cover a lot of Mexican history which makes a person feel both pride and embarrassment as a native Catholic Mexican. The author made a point which really stood out to me. We, as Mexicans in general, are always looking to be told what to do and how to do it.

We are very proud and hard workers, but have that complex ingrained in our culture by the Catholic Church it self, “do as you are told.” We grow up always being told we must obey, especially when it comes to anything church related. Clearly not always in our benefit and in fact mostly to the church benefit.

Needless to say I would not be surprised if a lot of Mexican people would not agree with the author opinions. There would probably be a lot of offended people unwilling to even entertain with an open mind a different point of view.

Overall good, taught provoking audio book for Spanish speakers willing to listen to an alternative point of view.

Ataque al catolicismo

Este libro es un vil ataque contra la iglesia católica; se dedican a atacar a la iglesia todo el tiempo, el autor solo da una crítica que si bien a veces es meramente de hechos históricos, siempre lo relaciona mucho contra la iglesia católica lo cual deja un muy mal sabor de boca. Además ... ¿Quién puede respaldar lo que él está diciendo? ¿Debemos solo creerle porque está dando una crítica?

Malísimo

Desde mi perspectiva es una narración con muchas preguntas románticas de lo que a todos nos gustaría que fuera nuestro país pero que sabemos a la perfección que somos engañados de manera constante. La base del engaño es el control de las masas, está bien? Por supuesto que no, pero esa es la realidad de nuestro país y de muchos otros países, aún países desarrollados, sólo falta mirar a nuestro vecino del norte y sus pasadas elecciones. Es de los peores libros que leído

Muy detallado y muy extenso

Quizá demasiado extenso, muy interesante y detallado, pero algo tedioso, buena tarea del escritor. Engloba un período muy amplio

Marxist Critical Theory for Mexicans

This book is amateur and sad polemicist "history". It is a perfect pity party for someone with no work ethic so to blame everybody, except themselves for their outcomes. It's organized into 10 minute amateur-level chapters. "Puedes imaginar tu madre violada." This is like listening to a sad, semi-educated, Uber driver telling you the "History of the World". Mexicans are generally too cool for this type of stuff but it's best to Keep this book away from Kids, unless you want to make them mentally fragile losers. By the way, listeners, the writer is a white-guy Mexican, a Noam Chomsky type with the same clown hair. Basically not really a Mexican like us, just a groupie that speaks our language, but they love to make up memories that people don't actually have to generate hate and division in the real world.

(1) Author claims, China discovered America, it should be called "New China". He can call it that, good luck.
(2) "Mexican children need the government to write better history books for better mass education"...aka indoctrination.
(3) Silly uninformed takes on 15th century economics.
(4) The USA took away Mexico's future in the 1840's, assumes Silicon Valley would still be there under Mexican rule.
(5) "Mexico has more pyramids than Egypt!" Some how that a big deal.
(6) Leon Trotsky would have saved Mexico. Yes, an ignorant Russian communist that helped cause mass famine and death in Russia would have saved Mexico
(7) Mexico invented the "Zero" in Math. Newton, Leibnitz, Descartes, and the Babylonian cats that invented Algebra would probably have a good laugh at that.
(8) Tortillas are a huge invention, "they are an edible plate and a napkin"

I thought this book was going to be good. But this is about the saddest and silliest thing imaginable. I would be embarrassed for American or French guys to read this CRT diatribe. While the Russians and the USA ran a noble Space race, this dude is stuck on Mexico not getting credit for owning the words "Coyote" and "tomato". France is involved in Genomics, they are not still crying about Julius Caesar beating the ancient Gauls. Germany is inventing all the widgets and tech for a post-carbon energy grid, they are not obsessing about Gustavos Adolphus in 1615. Also, don't tell this amateur historian that Spain "invaded" the Netherlands at around the same time as Cortez in Mexico with more soldiers, more resources, and killed many more civilians. The Dutch are a rich country today and they are not writing Marxist interpretations of Maastricht's plight in the 16th century. Delft TU is producing more patents in a year than Mexico has ever produced. Not wasting time is a good thing.

The narrator is gross. It's a whispering, stilted, Spanish voice with a clipped Mexican accent. Imagine a sweaty tour guide in a run-down road-side "museum".
