About the Author
Alice Rose is a Brazil enthusiast who, while she is not working on her Bahian accent, is digging for dinosaur bones in her backyard in Oakland, California.
Pedro A. Cabral discovered Brazil in 1500. He spent most of his life in Salvador, Brazil. Due to GPS technology and Google Maps, Cabral has been forced to give up his love for exploration and has retired to the tame Oakland, California, where he has dedicated himself to the art of capoeira.

Overall, a surprisingly useful book.
The book also doesn't tell you just how masculine, feminine, or dirty certain phrases are considered to be, and doesn't provide multiple scenarios for frequently used slang, so if you want to get it right you should probably listen for it when native speakers are using the phrases, or ask someone who is a native speaker to make sure you understand correctly.
In the end, no book can teach a foreigner the nuances of how to joke in a foreign language, etc. But around casual friends and friendly co-workers, you'll surely get a laugh just form attempting to use these phrases ... everyone loves a foreigner with a wannabe potty-mouth.
This book has made a few jaws drop after I've used a phrase from it.
I have; however, been corrected quite a few times.
The best way to get a good repertoire of Brasilian Portuguese slang is to get out & about & talk to a lot of people!
By the way; get this book in paperback & NOT Kindle format.
Unfortunately; the Kindle version is poorly formatted as is the case with most technical/educational material on the Kindle.
I got it on my Kindle using the 3G while anchored in Guayabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro which speaks volumes for the 3G coverage.
