“The Pinoy Sandwich Generation Toolkit brings me back to the time when I have to take care of my mother and seven siblings. This long-overdue book strikes a chord with a vast majority of people in the Philippines where care for the aged and dependent children is grossly inadequate. Many in Sandwich Generation, particularly women are also facing a dilemma of not being able to secure themselves financially when they retire, and they could not presume that their children are able to take care of them when the time comes. Anna de Chavez succeeded in describing the complex topic that is easy to follow and written based on the Philippine context. It provides practical advice on how to deal with the issue emotionally, physically, and financially. This book is clear and concise and offers much more information than I expected. A must read for Sandwich Generation and for those who will be in the future. In fact, even young people should start reading it. I wish I had it in the 1980s. I will surely recommend this book to my family and friends.

As a Gen Z working professional and an only child to my aging senior parents, I find the Pinoy Sandwich Generation Toolkit a must-read for people like me for it is easily relatable. Trying to be the best version of yourself on balancing career advancement, attending to your family’s needs and attention, pondering on the future self you envision to be, and ensuring self-care while on the process has been a constant struggle. Each page of the e-book makes the reader realize the importance of knowing what the Pinoy Sandwich Generation is; grounding on what type of “sandwich” you are; and straight talk from direct tips and steps to follow to lessen the disadvantages of being trapped in the vicious cycle of the Sandwich Generation to start anew. No financial self-help book contextualized in the Philippines has focused more comprehensively on the topic Pinoy Sandwich Generation. No, you are not alone in this rocky financial journey we uniquely find ourselves in; but, yes, this is the sign you are waiting for. Let’s start our new year with a better understanding of what we could do to make ourselves be more mentally prepared and financially secured to wherever our future leads us. Breathe. Ease your mind. Help yourself. Read the Pinoy Sandwich Generation Toolkit by Anna de Chavez.
