Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The Brazilian Dream is not your typical story inspirational story of entrepreneurship with daring risks taken against the odds. In fact, it's not inspirational at all due to the thoroughly privileged life, education and financial position Rottgen is starting from. I could be wrong but I don't think someone in the top 5% of earners deciding to relocate to another country makes them the "Original emigrant"? Rottgen does face a number of challenges during the read such as whether to sell his apartment in Covent Garden? And what type of visa to allow him to stay in Brazil but these are generally solved with money. If you're already rich and looking for a change then this book is definitely for you!

Rottgen is clearly and intelligent person who has put a lot of thought into his business venture and there are a few nuggets of information relevant to someone looking to start a business in Brazil. However, if this is your reason for considering the purchase then you're better off spending your time on Google. One for the recycling bin in my opinion.

Extremely useful book for anyone considering living and working in Brazil. Many practical tips and lessons!
Interesting also to read the way in which the author had weighed up many options (comparing different cities / countries) before deciding upon Sao Paulo, Brazil.
All in all, highly recommended!

Raphael Rottgen provides an interesting story of how he analysed his options for starting a new entrepreneurial life in an emerging market. You are shown the reasons why Brazil is such a compelling story right now.

This is however more than just wanderlust this is one mans attempt to minimise the chance of failure and play to win in the complex world of Brazilian business.

Raphael talks about the practical roadblocks that get in the way and also the emotional feelings that have to be navigated. In this book he draws your attention to the factors that can help or hinder an expatriot's adjustment to a new life in Brazil. Each chapter reveals a little more as Raphael recounts the experiences he has had on this journey.

I recommend this book to anyone who is considering relocation to another country not just Brazil.
