The guide for Brazil was the first guidebook I had bought as it was the first time I had ever travelled abroad. Believe me, it helped!!! In spite of what the above reviewer says, it gives a good range of hotels and it gives a good range of ideas of where to go and what to see (by the way, in Shanghai for example the LP suggested for those inclined to try it, to stay out in the 5* Grand Hyatt hotel whilst I was there... something I did and, as I am unaccostomed to staying in such luxury, I probably wouldn't have done it!). If you are not confident in yourself for reasons such as language or knowledge of the place, then I would say that the book is fantastic.
I am going back to Brazil now after five years away amd this time I will be living there. I love the country and I have got a good knowledge of it, but I have got this updated copy anyway. I don't think I will use it quite so heavily as the first time I was there, but the fact is that it does contain great ideas as to excursions to go on and places to stay. What the reviewer above does not appreciate is the fact that the LP books, and this LP Brazil book in question, are GUIDE books. They don't pretend to have any great insights into countries.
For sure, to have a comprehensive idea about the history of Brazil, you would need a much thicker book! But then again, if you are interested in that, you should buy it seperately!! Indeed, in regards to this, reading through the pages that give a BASIC outline to the history of Brazil, if anything they actually make you curious to go and read further information. Afterall, whether you are a backpacker or a general tourist, you generally don't want to carry around a massive book everywhere you go.
