This is a short, easy to read introduction to life in Brazil. Andrew has not written this as a tourist guide, it's more like a memoir of how he settled into living life in Brazil - what worked, what was unusual, and what could be a complete disaster. He has a friendly style that keeps you turning the pages. If you are a foreigner living in Brazil then it's worth reading just to see what you identify with too, if you are thinking of taking the plunge and moving to Brazil then take a look too. It's not a detailed how-to guide - he is not telling you how to get a visa or pay your taxes, this is entirely personal observations on the cultural difficulties a Brit can have when settling into Brazil and being in that position myself I can identify with much of his book!

It is always great to read when a foreigner falls in love with my country and describes the main aspects of its culture with such accuracy and sense of humour, even though the book has, at times, reminded me very much of the things I dislike about Brazil. A fun and relaxing reading. Love it.

One of the best ways to get a feel for a country is to look through the eyes of someone who's gone through the hard cultural landing of just arriving and is now living out all the cool reasons for coming. And Brazil has many. Brazil seduces and has a vibe that most countries would love to rent for the weekend. Andy helps you see it,experience it, laugh at it all and feel it. As a fellow Brit i appreciate his sharpness and humour to pin point the unusual and the fascinating. Better than a tour guide Andy is your Sao Paulo contact - your man who knows what makes Rio's big ugly sister show her bad cool side. Well recommended!
