Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A clear background on the subject, 20 Mar. 2014

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for all men to read, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book goes a long way to help me understand women, although married for over 40 years I still have much to learn and this book filled in many of the gaps in my knowledge. All married men should read this.

Brazil Is the New America: How Brazil Offers Upward Mobility in a Collapsing World
Price: £16.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very revealing insight into what Brazil is all about and the huge potential locked up in the country. However, too much was also written about America's weaknesses, the author should have spoken a bit more about Brazil's weaknesses which are causing so many opportunities for advancement to be wasted.
