"Fodor's Brazil (2008 edition)" (587 pages) is an outstanding travel guide. It brings a great overview of the many practical details of visiting Brazil. Just as an example (and I'm probably proving my ignorance here), it wasn't until I read this book some months ago that I realized that I needed a tourist visa to enter the country (and what a detailed procedural process that turned out to be!). My visit was limited to Sao Paolo, and so I focused on the chapter dealing with Sao Paolo, along with the more general chapters. Now having returned from my trip, I cannot emphasize enough how much on point the 75 page Sao Paolo chapter was, and it really prepared me well for my trip, ranging from what things to be aware of, what things to see, etc. etc. I have no doubt that the other chapters are equally up to the task as well, even though of course I did not visit other places.
In all, I readily recommend this travel guide to anyone who is planning to visit Brazil. I had a tremendous time in Sao Paolo, and hope to make it back to Brazil to visit other places (Rio, of course) and when I do, you can bet I will revisit this book. Highly recommended!
