5.0 out of 5 stars Want to understand more about Brazil?, 23 Dec 2009
This is an exceptionally good book: entertaining, informative and fascinating. It splits into three revolving strands. 1) The author's personal experience in Brazil (which sometimes reads like a thriller) including insights on culture, food and language, 2) the history of Brazil from it's colonisation by the Portuguese (which sometimes reads like a thriller) including views on why Brazil is so culturally different from the Spanish colonies, and indeed North America and 3) the recent history of Brazil (which is a thriller) from the military dictatorship until today's president Lula with amazing background on where Collor and Lula came from and what their entourage was all about. I wish there was a book like this on every country I ever visit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the money but can be improved, 7 Oct 2009
I do like my new car stereo. The sound is good and the ability to control my iPod/iPhone from it is great. It also doesn't look too flashy, so is hopefully less attractive to thieves. However, the ergonomics of the unit could be improved. The removable front is very fiddly to get back on and some buttons are dificult to to press and/or read while driving.

Overall, good for the money.
