Written by a well-known con artist March 22 2011
By Gabriel Torres - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is written by a well-known Brazilian con artist whose real name is Ricardo Reinprecht, who duped several people back in Brazil for millions of dollars while he was the president of a publishing house called Axcel Books (try googling this name to see), being currently in unknown location and hiding from Brazilian justice. This book was written so he could get some money while in hiding.

As for capoeira, he hasn't practiced this art since the late 1970's/early 1980's, so it is at least suspicious why someone that hasn't practiced capoeira for the past 30 years decided to write a book about the subject.

As for the book, all illustrations were done by Ingo Bertelli, who was also scammed and wasn't paid a dime for the job.

Please, do not buy this book. By buying this book you are helping a criminal to stay afloat.
A delightful surprise! Dec 7 2012
By Benjamin Williams - Published on
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed very much this book. It is full of interesting historical information. I wonder if the first chapter, First Came 12 Ships, is a true story ... The "real cradle" of capoeira is well explained and makes a lot of sense to me. A fascinating book, beautifully written.
