5.0 out of 5 stars This is an amazing book!!!!!!, May 2 2004
This review is from: Brazil (Paperback)
I had told my new boyfriend a lot about my country, and the way Brazilian culture is. It was amazing when he came home with this book, and read some parts to me. The writer gives an incredible description of the Brazilian soul, our culture and passions, and things I never realized are part of our life. The author of "Culture Shock" probably knows more about us Brazilians than we do, probably because you see better when you see from outside.
I was so impressed by the way Volker Poelzl describes what I am, the details given in the book made me feel like I was looking at the mirror.Whenever I start learning about a new culture, I won't hesitate to buy one of his books. By seeing the wonderful job that "Brazil (Culture Shock!)" is, I have no doubts about how brilliant this guy is.
