ANDANZAS is an autobiographical book of Daniel Padilla Ramos, a lawyer in Hermosillo, Sonora Mexico, very close to the border with the state of Arizona in the United States city, and who at an early age considered writing his memoirs because his view, You not necessarily have to leave a legacy of life when one is an elderly person, or worse, wait for a third party write when one has since died.

Daniel grew up in the city of Hermosillo and since childhood began writing the story of his life, with photographic evidence, documents and even videos that have marked its existence. The final trigger for Daniel decided to write the story of his life, was certainly the fact that his brother Diego has been invaded by a cancer that ended up taking him to death in 2013, therefore, realizing that life we can go at the least expected moment, Daniel was devoted to collecting these testimonies of life with those who had, sort and explain with words, thus shaping his work, which he labeled as ANDANZAS, in clear reference to the steps taken in its existence.

This book offers with splendid clarity, what a middle class person and eager to get ahead illustrates in everyday life, from the ceremony of his baptism, his documented step from basic education to vocational, her divorce and her second marriage, through the arduous task of bringing up her six children, to close with the fact of becoming a young grandfather at the age of 44 years.

In a nice way, the author recounts his childhood pranks, his adventures of youth and training as a litigator. As a legal professional, Daniel Padilla had the opportunity to handle major cases that were entrusted to him, being perhaps the most important, having been the only lawyer in Mexico to have been selected by the United States Department of Justice of North America to represent relatives of Mexicans who lost their lives during the heinous terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 in that neighboring country.

In ANDANZAS, the young author also talk in a very pleasant way some legal cases handled in his office, such as the legal representation of North American citizens residing on the beach in San Carlos Nuevo Guaymas, Sonora, where practically this lawyer had to take justice into their own hands to resolve you customers a serious dispute. Interesting the case of the official government television station, which Daniel Padilla managed to save from bankruptcy thanks to legal and tax strategies that knew implement. It was also hired as his lawyer, singer and composer famed Mexican Juan Gabriel, who likewise helped in their tax liabilities, although this experience was not entirely positive for Padilla attorney. The fun lost a treasure hunt that for years the author has searched without finding Logar, it is humorously narrated in these memoirs. In his book, the author does see very clearly the complexity of family relationships so common in the vast majority of the world's families.

But not everything in ANDANZAS are successes and celebrations, as Daniel Padilla transports us to live with him, the ordeal of a kidnapping of which he was a victim in the year 1996 in Mexico City, DF, which say the author, practically reborn.

ANDANZAS also offers the reader something very unusual for an autobiographical writer, who is molesting recognize the knowledge and application of the law for their own benefit; just as we explained in details and documents presented, several lawsuits against him, a very brave writer indeed. He explains the author, who dared to mention such episodes of his life even if they prove painful, because he wanted his ANDANZAS they were completely attached to reality. The courage and enthusiasm of Daniel Padilla to establish many businesses, all diversified, from pharmacies to Laundromats, through Tequila and Habanos. A very swampy path hardly the author has managed to cross, thanks to his dedication, drive and belief in their life projects.

Mexico's history and world history are the same issues that Daniel Padilla passionate about him, and not ANDANZAS misses the opportunity to make comments about what he believes is the true story. ANDANZAS is a book out of series and unusual too ...
