In October 2001, Time magazine had this to say: “In a time when kids seem to grow up too fast, exposed to pressures their parents never had to face, Carlos Cuauhtemoc Sanchez is touching young people with a deeply moral message that has made him the pop-cultural moral guide for millions.”
The Wall Street Journal reported in its March 17, 2000 issue: “Carlos C. Sanchez sells almost as many books as superstars like Colombian Nobel Laureate Gabriel García árquez… Mr. Sánchez’ ability to hold 1,200 young people rapt with an argument for premarital abstinence on this of all days helps explain why he is Mexico´s best-selling author.”
The newspaper Reforma said in October 14, 1997: “A poll conducted by this newspaper’s research department found that the most-read and most popular authors among Mexican university students are Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Hermann Hesse and Carlos Cuauhtemoc Sanchez. They are literature’s hit parade.”
And on June 25, 2002, The Los Angeles Times asserted, “For thousands of people, Sanchez is a cross between a Spanish-speaking Tony Robbins and a beloved priest, a down-to-earth spiritual guru who motivates them through the toughest moments in their lives with his common-sense advice. With his message of family unity, forgiveness, faith and character, he has become a pop-cultural moral guide for millions across Latin America who are touched by his deeply conservative message. Among Latinos in Southern California, he outsells the literary giants.”
The Houston, Texas newspaper El Dia reported on April 24, 2003: “Carlos Cuauhtemoc Sanchez, the writer who has made helping people his life’s mission and who has been able to share the life lessons he and others have learned, has captured the heart of Latin America. The Mexican author, whose books sell throughout Latin America and have inspired people to see life in a new way, based on human values, was here with us at El Dia yesterday.”
All of the books by Carlos Cuauhtemoc Sanchez have been bestsellers, and several have been translated into English, French and Portuguese.
The author has been a guest on many radio and television shows as an expert in human development. He won the National Prize for Creative Minds, awarded by the General Directorship of the Association for Authors’ Rights (Direccion General del derecho de Autor), and the National Prize for Literature for Youth, awarded by the President of the Mexican Republic. He has conducted large-scale conferences in the biggest venues throughout Latin America. There is now a square with his footprints in bronze in the Plaza de las Estrella’s Walk of Fame. He has been named the “writer of the year”, awarded the Golden Sun, and honored with the Toastmaster Prize for Excellence in Oral Communication, and recognized by many social welfare organizations as one of the most important exponents of self-improvement, leadership, and family values of our time.
