“…the best guide to Brazil available. For such a large country the author does an excellent job”

“Excellent. I was a week in Rio and Sao Paulo. I used to live in Sao Paulo. I found the book great for both – especially for the nightlife, restaurants and live bands and the stuff beyond the obvious.”
