Good and infomration but lacking on some key issues
on 26 February 2013
We bought this and found it very useful on our recent trip. It was nicely broken down into section so you could go directly to meals/travel/shopping etc sections to find the relevant works and the phonetic descriptions were understood. As a book it did try to cover too many area, for example, your average traveller doesn't need to know the section on how to get to hospital becuase they are about to give birth, they do need to know the works for postcards, stamps and the like, also, by the time we got to Bahia and the Amazon the culinary sectiom was useless as it focused on central Brazillian foods. I would recommend this for any traveller to Brazil, despite it's few faults it was a very handy book to have especially as there are very few foreign language speakers over there in the services industry (we spoke English, Spanish and French to a good level and still used the guide constantly).
